His statement sparked debates among fanboys, who disagreed with the idea to change the origin of the quartet.
"These turtles are from an alien race and they are going to be tough, edgy, funny and completely lovable," so Bay stated while attending the 2012 Nickelodeon Upfront at the Lincoln Center in New York. "When you see this movie, kids are going to believe, one day, that these turtles actually do exist when we are done with this movie."
Paramount Pictures has scheduled to release "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" in the U.S. on Christmas Day in 2013. Plot details of the upcoming reboot are still scarce.
