Turtle Power: The Definitive History of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is a 2014 documentary about the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise directed by Randall Lobb.

Cast[edit]

Development[edit]

The film was made to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the franchise. It began development in 2009, with production lasting for five years. Over one-hundred hours of interviews were examined by the filmmakers to determine whether they could be used.[2] The trailer was released on June 11, 2014.[3]

Release[edit]

It was released on DVD in the United States on August 12, 2014.[4] It was released four days after the 2014 film in the franchise.[5]

Reception[edit]

Flickering Myth awarded the film a score of two out of five stars, saying "not a definitive look, it just about scrapes the surface and that's why it's hard to recommend. It's worth watching because what it does show is great, but it will just leave you wanting more and 99 minutes just isn't enough time to cover a thirty year history."[6] Panels and Pixels awarded it 3.5 out of 5, saying "It's an uneven package and certainly not definitive, but there's enough in there to make it worth watching."[7]

Sequel[edit]

Director Randall Lobb confirmed that a sequel is in development.[8]
