The actor, who produced & co-wrote the screenplay, opened up about their inspiration for the movie

The Ninja Turtles, feature young human-like turtles who fight crime. They originated as comic books meant to be a parody and a one-time project, but they surprisingly gained immense popularity.

Remarkably, the Ninja Turtles have left a significant impact, not only through their comic books but also via adaptations on both small and large screens, including the one directed by Michael Bay in 2014.

Not to mention the famous animated series from the 90s. Many children and teenagers since the 80s have grown up adoring the four brothers that constitute the four siblings: Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello, and Michelangelo. And, of course, we can’t forget their master: Splinter.

‘Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem’ Synopsis

Their new friend April O’Neil will assist them in confronting a mysterious crime syndicate, but soon they will attempt to unbalance them by unleashing an army of mutants upon them.

Interview With LOS40

Armando Reyna, from De Película, interviewed the renowned actor Seth Rogen, who produced and co-wrote the screenplay along with the movie director Jeff Rowe, and the screenplay team, Evan Goldberg, Dan Hernandez, and Benji Samit.

The movie is heavily inspired by and influenced by adolescence. Despite having a PG rating, the film carries teenage undertones and isn’t truly intended for young children. Seth, as the screenwriter of the film, mentioned that he usually creates content for adults, as we’ve seen throughout his career, but also pointed out that young people enjoy a type of ‘edgy’ and ‘adult’ comedy. 

His purpose with the movie was to focus on the energy of that age, capturing the chaotic and liberating spirit of a teenager. 

During the interview, Rogen also discussed one of the most important aspects of the film: animation. It’s inspired by a memory that probably every teenager has doodling countless sketches at the back of their school notebooks. Seth actually feels that the animation captures the kind of reckless, wild, carefree, and teen energy that they wanted the movie to portray. But what do you think?
