Related notes, we’re getting overwhelmed with movie info once again this week due to ..

.. this week’s Cinemacon as it was host to the stars, theater operators and Paramount TMNT ‘s Will Arnett – leading to the reveal of the first trailer of the film*.

Of Note: *Arnet has his lore a little mixed up in the interview linked up – but the character of “VERN FENWICK” in the movie may be an amalgam of Casey’s cousin Syd from the comics and TMNT 2003 show & Vernon from the original cartoon show. Weird. On a nerdy note, technically Vernon was in the comics – the earliest TMNT Adventures books; adaptations of some of the very first few TMNT TOS episodes.

PORTRAIT OF ARCTIC DONATELLO
The Frosty Frozen Foot Fighter!

Arctic Donatello’s Accessories:
Real Workin’ Ice Water Shootin’ Blaster, Ice Poppin’ Penguin Pal, Anti-slip Snow Shoes, Ice Pick Bo, Gold Metalized Kowabunga Collector Coin

On the barren, frozen wasteland known as the Turtle tundra, there stands only one Mutant – Arctic Donatello. This is his element – this block of unforgiving ice where every direction you turn is south; this is where he lives out the adventure of a lifetime. Like his brothers, Safari Michaelangelo and Deep Sea Diver Leonardo, Artic Donatello is searchin’ for the lost gold coin that bears the name “Kowabunga Collector Coin.” Artic Donatello, along with his trusty ice poppin’ penguin pal, shuffles through the slushy snow in the only good pair of anti-slip snow shoes north of Alaska. And if any frozen Foot fools show up for a battle on the ice, Donatello will stop ‘em cold with a blast of water from his real workin’ ice water shootin’ blaster. Then, with a few swings of his ice pick bo, Arctic Donatello sends them on their way – south. So dress warm and put on some extra socks, cuz it’s your turn to join the adventure!
