New project for Lena and this time she will join Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, a huge childhood favorite so this is exciting!
The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are back! Nickelodeon just launched a brand new series Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and it looks epic. The new iteration of the popular cartoon follows Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michaelangelo on all-new adventures as they seek to unlock the mystical secrets of New York City. From the tallest skyscraper to the dankest sewer drain, these four brothers are in for a wild ride. As they learn to tap into mystic, ninja powers they never knew existed, Raph, Leo, Mikey, and Donnie must learn to work together and navigate the perils of the modern age and hidden realms in order to fulfill their destiny to become a team of heroes.
While this definitely sounds awesome, it’s not all going to be fun and games (and pizza!) for your favorite turtles. They’re going to face off against some seriously evil villains over the course of the 26 episode Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series. It’s been announced that John Cena and Lena Headey will voice two sinister characters that will face off against Raph, Leo, Donnie, and Mikey. Few details are known about these exciting guest roles, but we do know their character names. Cena will play Baron Draxum, while Headey will voice Big Mama.
Cena and Headey aren’t the only big names popping up in villainous roles on Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, either. Rhys Darby, John Michael Higgins, Tom Kenny, and Johnny Rotten will voice Turtle enemies Hypno-Potamus, Warren Stone, Albearto, and Meat Sweats respectively.
Nickelodeon released an action packed trailer all about the villains challenging the Turtles this season.
