TMNT Panel at San Diego Comic-Con 2012

At this year's San Diego Comic-Con, Nickelodeon hosted a panel that gave fans a sneak preview of the new series, as well as a chance to see and hear the new voice actors. After all the panelists were brought out, Executive Producer Ciro Nieli showed us "The Pitch" he had presented to Nickelodeon, which ended up getting him the job. We were also shown an early test clip of animation.

After Ciro's time was up, the new voice cast for the show answered questions from moderator Rich Magallanes, Senior Vice President of Nickelodeon Animation. As we've known, the cast includes Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Sean Astin (Raphael), Greg Cipes (Michelangelo), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Hoon Lee (Master Splinter), Mae Whitman (April O'Neil), and Kevin Michael Richardson (Shredder).

Below is a collection of all the video clips I personally recorded during this panel. I've also inserted some of the animation clips we were shown during the panel. Convention rules didn't allow the recording of these clips during the panel, but Nickelodeon released them online later that day.

Nickelodeon also released online their own recording of the panel, although it's in the wrong aspect ratio and doesn't feature the same awesome handheld qualities as the above video. ;)


  1. Yours is also UNCUT!! I swear Nick edited their copy...for some reason.

  2. Oh man, I want all that awesome concept art! When he said Goonies I applauded in my seat. xD These guys really seem to adore what they're making which is just great. When they were talking about the 'heart' and how they love each other I was like YES thankyou, the series will be more than just fighting monsters. And Kevin Eastman was so excited! What a great bunch of people and what great energy that all had. =D Thanks so much for posting this! I wish I could have been there!

  3. Did they really edit their video? I never watched it all the way through. But I suppose a few bad words were dropped here and there.
