    Does Disney still own the Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtels?

    With the new TMNT movie coming out in a few weeks I started to wonder if Disney still owned the rights to them. I know that Disney had bought the rights to the Turtels in the late 80's or early 90's during the hight of popularity during the orginal cartoon run along with the original movies. I can remember the Turtels being at MGM Studios in the early 90's. I was just wondering if the had anything to do with this new one does anyone know?

    Re: Does Disney still own the Teenage Mutant Ninga Turtels?

    I asked about the Turtles before and I am going to give the thread for it. I asked where ever happened to them. The anwser was they went anyway when the Power Rangers because the new hip thing.

    Though to answer your question. I would think it's no. Unless they still go by Jim Henson's creations.

    Whatever happened to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles that were at the Disney Parks?

    Disney never owned the Ninja Turtles but I think they secured exclusive rights for them to appear at MGM Studios while they were hot hot hot.

    The films were distributed by New Line Cinema, which is owned by Warner Bros. The new CG film is released by another studio altogether I believe.

    And supposedly this CGI movie version is kind of the continuing the first 3 live-action movies. Technically making this the 4th movie...

    And supposedly the same thing will happen to Ghostbusters 3, all CGI, perhaps motion capture, and perhaps with some or all original actors voicing their characters...
