The upcoming reboot of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ movie franchise from Michael Bay isn’t exactly popular with fans, but if Bay has anything going for vision, it’s the support of TMNT’s co-creator Kevin Eastman.

Eastman has recently clarified that he is satisfied with the approach taken by Bay and Platinum Dunes, and believes that it will be true to the characters’ roots:

“From everything that I’ve seen in the script,” begins Eastman, “and the development and everything they’ve asked my input on specifically, it’s gonna be an awesome, familiar, solid Turtles movie. It’ll have everything that fans are gonna want and then some.

“It’s all based solidly on the Turtles foundation, but they’ve hit the reset button. They’ve taken it back to the first episode, with the Turtles’ first time above ground after many years of training with Master Splinter.

“They’re making a Turtles origin that is firmly rooted in Turtles history, but a slight tweak here and a slight tweak there.”
