Emerging from their hidden lair in the sewers for the very first time, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are ready to explore the hostile streets of NYC. Join these four super dudes – Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo – as they face enemies more dangerous, and taste pizza more delicious, than anything they could have imagined!
A few days ago Nickelodeon announced that February 26th will see the release of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – Rise of the Turtles, a DVD title with the first episodes of the new 2012 CGI-animated series. We didn’t have a lot of info about this item at the time, but now our friends in the retail industry have passed along info showing that this is a single-disc title running 145 minutes for 6 episodes. You’ll also get 6 behind-the-scenes Animatics (one for each episode), and a Karaoke Music Video for “Learning the Theme Song.” Cost is $14.99 SRP, and you can pre-order it from Amazon at the button link below. We also have an early look at possible front box art for this title, but it is not finalized and could be subject to change .. –
