Meanwhile, the animated film was a box office hit with Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Movies planning a sequel and new Paramount+ series, while it received mostly positive reviews from critics and general audiences, alike.
“In any case, the movie’s mostly just meant to be fun, and that it is, skewing young while giving lifelong fans (including those who grew up on the Turtles) plenty to geek out about,” Variety critic Peter DeBruge penned in his film review.
