If the director of ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Chaos’ had not written a personal letter to this cinema legend, this star would never have participated in the new version of the four reptilian teenagers from New York.

From Disney+, Amazon Prime Video y Netflixon all streaming platforms there are great movies in the animated genre. However, when a movie of the level Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem arrives in the streaming giant’s catalog, it is impossible for it not to position itself in the Top 10 of the most viewed like Sing 2: Come and sing again! and Miraculous World: Shanghai, the legend of Lady Dragon.

Released about a year ago, the animated film brought joy to everyone who already knew the incredible team of teenage reptiles from New York City, although it also delighted those who didn’t know they existed. With a different design style from the original, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem managed to raise more than 180 million dollars at the box office.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem is an updated version of the four turtles who acquire impressive abilities after being exposed to a radioactive substance. Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and Donatello decide to leave their fear behind and leave the sewers to see all the splendor of the Big Apple. In order to fit into a very different world, the turtles will try to become real heroes with the help of April O’Neil, their human friend..

One of the big surprises of the film is that in the English version, one of the legends of cinema and martial arts lent his voice to one of the characters. However, if it had not been for a letter that the director sent him personally, this figure would never have participated in the new version of Ninja Turtles.

Probably, the biggest star of all Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem was Jackie Chanwho gave life to Splinter, the rodent mentor and father figure of the four reptiles. Although filmmaker Jeff Rowe thought the actor Karate Kid I would say no, he decided to give it a try and write a personal letter to Chan asking him to participate as Splinter.

In the end, the letter did its job, something that surprised Rowe himself. “We wanted him to do this (…) We thought, ‘he’ll never say yes to this, but let’s try it,'” said the director of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem“But he was already in. He was familiar with the franchise,” Rowe recalled of how Chan was already a fan of the series. On what it was that Chan did to make Splinter so special, Rowe said the actor added “humanity” and “a lot of warmth” to everyone’s favorite mutant rat..
