The TV show will star Omar Miller as Raphael, Ben Schwartz as Leonardo, Brandon Mychal Smith as Michelangelo, Josh Brener as Donatello, Eric Bauza as Splinter, and Kat Graham as April O’Neil. The animated show will make a big change as Raphael will now serve as the team and Leonardo will be depicted as the “self-professed ‘coolest’ brother”. John Cena will voice Baron Draxum “an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants”. Draxum is a new villain created for the animated series.

The series is co-executive produced by Andy Suriano (character designer for Adult Swim’s “Samurai Jack”) and Ant Ward (supervising producer, current “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles”) at Nickelodeon in Burbank, California.

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird. They first appeared in an American comic book published by Mirage Studios in 1984 in Dover, New Hampshire. The ComicBook s has expanded into cartoon series, two live-action films, video games, toys, and other general merchandise.

“The highly comedic voice cast shapes the team in a fresh way and breathes new life into the characters’ distinct personalities, including: Raphael, as the oldest and physically biggest brother, he is now the leader and his enthusiasm and bravado puts him front and center for most of their bizarre adventures; Leonardo, the self-professed ‘coolest’ brother possesses irreverent charm and a rebel heart; Donatello, an unflappable mechanical genius and tech wizard whose ninja skills are second only to his coding; Michelangelo, the youngest brother, an artist and awesome skateboarder with a wild colorful, and imaginative personality; and the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker who is always ready to join in the fun. Additionally, Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) joins the cast as Splinter, both father figure and sensei to the Turtles.”
