Megan Fox has confirmed the fact that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was her all-time favorite program on TV. Star Wars and Lord of the Rings just could not compare to the franchise

“They were my favorite movies as a kid,” Fox told MTV. “That was my thing. Way, way more so than ‘Star Wars’ or in later years, still more than ‘Lord of the Rings.’ It was always ‘Ninja Turtles.’”

Fox furthermore revealed that she even had a crush on one of the turtles and that was Michelangelo. So she is absolutely delighted about the whole thing. 

“My first crush, and everyone thinks this is really weird, but little girls have crushes on animated characters, and my first crush was Michaelangelo,” Fox revealed. “So I’m super excited.”

As for Will Arnett, who is to play the role of cameraman Vernon Fenwick, Splinter will feature on it too. The giant rat with his wisdom and sagacity is to be a major part of the film

“Absolutely, Splinter is crucial,” Arnett said. “That all-wise giant rat is very important to the story. There is time in the sewers. There is time in the lair. There’s all of it. I think we’ve done a really good job in staying true to the mythology and then telling a new story, telling a new version.”

Besides Megan Fox and Will Arnett, Whoopi Goldberg will be starring in the summer slam movie. And it is all set for release on August 8th. Watch official trailer of the TMNT movie below.

A whole franchise of products has started based on the movie. Stretchkins toys have miniature versions of Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello in addition to the classic models of Playful Puppy, True Blue Elephant, Pretty Unicorn, Red Dragon and Jumping Frog.

The TMNT toys will be available in all the states of the USA starting July 2014. And their rates will begin from about $20 per figurine. The Stetchkins are toys created for action. 

They were invented to fight childhood obesity by the man who created them. The movie Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles shows a group of four turtles that come into contact with radioactivity and have mutations occur in their makeup. 

They wind up becoming Ninjas and their master and mentor is a king-sized rat that metes out valuable advice to them. For much of the 90s this was a popular cartoon series on television. It was eagerly seen by scores of kids and I dare say adults too although covertly. 

Well, now the adults can join in along with their kids, since the reboot version of the movie is for all audiences big and small. Meanwhile, Megan Fox will get to appear in the favorite series of her childhood days.
