Mutant Mayhem will be hitting theaters this August, and ever since it was announced in 2021, there has been a lot of buzz surrounding the film, largely because Seth Rogen has been attached as producer, and has also promised that it will focus on the "teenage aspect" of the Ninja Turtles like never before.
Well, when Rogen took to the stage at the Nickelodeon Kids' Choice Awards on Sunday night, he seemed to deliver on his promise, as the four voice actors who joined him are the youngest actors to have ever played Leonardo, Michelangelo, Raphael, and Donatello.
