'Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' Official NEW SERIES Theme Song | Nickelodeon

The official OPEN to the brand new series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is finally here! It’s BIG, BOLD, and turtle-y action-packed. This one will have you hitting repeat all day long! Be sure to keep it NickALive! for all things RISE OF THE TMNT!



Nickelodeon's Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles opening titles not only offer a new look at the newly-redesigned brothers in action, it also debuts a number of new villains the team will face in their first season — and, possibly, a new power for Raphael.

Now the leader of the team, Raph appears to have a special ability to go with his role as the head of the quartet. At the 19-second mark, Raph is seen smashing his fists together, apparently summoning his chi to give himself an instant power boost. Whether he alone manifests this ability in the new series, or if it’s something Donatello, Michelangelo and Leonardo can tap into as well, remains to be seen.

The opening sequence also debuts a number of new villains — or bad guys so dramatically redesigned we don’t recognize them. The closing moments bring John Cena’s Baron Draxum into the spotlight, as the massive new villain dwarfs the Turtles, though whether this is how big he’ll actually be on the show or if it’s merely some dramatic license for the opening credits we don’t yet know.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a brand-new 2D-animated series which follows the band of brothers as they discover new powers and encounter a mystical world they never knew existed beneath the streets of New York City.

Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reimagines the characters in a fresh new way, featuring jagged-shelled Raphael as a snapping turtle, wielding twin tonfas as his weapons; Leonardo as a red-eared slider, using an ōdachi sword; Donatello as a soft-shell turtle, sporting a tech-bo staff; and Michelangelo as a box turtle, arming himself with a kusari-fundo. Along for the adventure is the Turtles’ most trusted ally, April O’Neil, a street savvy native New Yorker and Splinter, father figure and sensei to the Turtles.

The series stars the voice talent of Omar Miller (Ballers) as Raphael, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (You’re The Worst) as Michelangelo, Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as April O’Neil and Eric Bauza (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Splinter. WWE Superstar John Cena lends his voice as villain, Baron Draxum, an alchemist warrior mutant who seeks to turn all of humanity into mutants. In addition to Baron Draxum, the Turtle bros will also be doing battle with new villains such as Meat Sweats, Hypno-Potamus, Warren Stone and Albearto in the series.
