Fans have been in uproar ever since the new Ninja Turtles was announced, with Michael Bay onboard to seemingly ruin it by eliminating their mutant origin and turning them into aliens, turning it into a Transformers with turtles. Co-creator of the Tmnt, Kevin Eastman, got to talking about the upcoming film, and seeks to sooth our souls and pump us up. See if it works:

Eastman: ”This will be a great Tmnt film…Much like many thirty year old concepts, the Tmnt’s have been re-invented a number of times, some were stronger than others, but if you look at what Viacom/Nickelodeon has done/allowed to happen with the new Tmnt animated TV series and the new Idw comic series, each has a slightly new and refreshed take on the ‘core concept,’ the new film with be the same, a film ‘well placed’ in the Tmnt lore the fans will enjoy. »
