The trailer certainly doesn't give much away, but it's plain to see that it has opted for a very family-friendly tone, with both an animation style and vibe that feels extremely reminiscent of Sony Pictures' Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018).
As you'll see from the casting, the film boasts some massive A-list stars, including Paul Rudd, Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, Giancarlo Esposito, John Cena, Jackie Chan, and even Seth Rogen himself.
Mutant Mayhem will be the seventh TMNT film, following Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993), TMNT, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows.
