This year has become a real holiday for all fans of animated films. At first, the new “Spider-Man” exceeded all expectations of both viewers and critics, becoming one of the main hits of the summer season. Then “Elementary” came out – the cartoon started poorly at the box office, but time showed that it did not hold up in stamina. “Nimona” was one of the most pleasant surprises among the new Netflix films, and “Suzume that closes the doors” captured the hearts of viewers around the world.
Next in line are the latest work by Hayao Miyazaki, who has already made the whole of Japan fall in love with herself, and, of course, the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Defeat. A new attempt to freshen up the cult teenage heroes will be released in early August.
Part of why so many are interested in Jeff Rowe and Seth Rogen’s character interpretation is her visual style. Unusual touches on objects, the combination of several styles of animation, including 3D, creates the feeling that the characters have gone straight from the artists’ concept art to the pasteboard.
“We decided that we wanted this movie to look exactly like the concept art, and we wanted it to look like it was drawn by a human hand, not a computer.”, – said the director in an interview with Variety. – “It should look like something slightly imperfect, maybe even ugly, reminiscent of how people draw as children or teenagers, when the passion and enthusiasm for creating art still does not fade against the backdrop of the formalities of art education“.
In fact, the animation of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Smash is reminiscent of how a rebellious teenager depicts the world in his own imagination. And it looks fresh. The project will reach cinemas on August 2, 2023.
