Why did you leave the ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ in the ’90s? | MTV News

Posted May 07, 2018 06:20:24 When ‘Teeny Mutant Ninja Turtle’ creator Chris Claremont died in 2000, it was widely assumed that his legacy would be overshadowed by a second ‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers’ film.

That didn’t happen.

Instead, Claremont and co-writer/director Scott Rosenberg teamed up for a third and final installment in the “Teenage Ninja Turtles” universe.

It was called ‘Ninja Turtles: Power Rangers,’ and it’s still in theaters today.

“The thing that is special to me about ‘Ninjutsu Turtles’ is that I never really felt like a kid again,” said Claremont in an interview with MTV News.

“It was like I was in a different universe, but I was also in a world that I loved.

The story that was told and the characters that were brought to life were just so great.”

The new ‘Ninjas’ movie stars Adam Sandler as Turtle and Kate Micucci as Katana.

It stars Danny DeVito as the evil leader, Krang.

The movie is due out May 10, 2019.
