Not 4 Everyone & That's OK
- May 28, 2014
If Disney got TMNT, it'd have to be under the Disney original banner rather than an acquisition because they clearly don't have the funds nor the creative staff to produce/develop a decent show as has been the case for Marvel & Star Wars (which I blindly assumed LucasFilms would have more than enough in the bank to keep up the high quality). Rebels looked ok. Post-Rebels I skipped entirely.I don't know if Disney would turn out a worse series, if only because most of the animated series during the past few years in particular have been pretty good, but I don't know if they'd actually be interested in the property. They already have Marvel and Star Wars to appeal to the male demographic, so I'm not sure what they'd get out of the TMNT franchise aside from obviously more money from toy sales. I don't think that Hasbro or Warner Bros. would be good fits for the franchise though.
What TMNT has been doing since its inception with each and every reboot was to update with the times.People might not be complaining because they've stopped caring. Constantly rebooting things seems to fatigue audiences. The last Batman branded cartoon was cancelled six years ago. Who knows when the next Spider-Man cartoon (toddler cartoon excluded) will launch after Disney XD's death. Star Wars Resistance got cancelled after two seasons, etc. It seems like you get diminishing returns the more you relaunch without any kind of rest period.
There's been just the right amount of reboots to reflect the generations being targeted across all the media, imho.
