If you’ve been waiting to plop down on the couch with a slice of pizza and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem in the comfort of your own home, you won’t have much longer to wait. Paramount announced today that Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem will start streaming on Paramount+ on September 19th in the U.S. and Canada, which is… tomorrow!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem grossed $167 million worldwide and sits at 96% on Rotten Tomatoes. The studio was quick to get the ball rolling on a sequel as well as a two-season animated series.

Mutant Mayhem director Jeff Rowe has said early versions of the movie included Shredder as the main villain before they decided to save him for the sequel. “The early version of the film [was] very different from what you’re seeing on screen,” Rowe said. “They were just in high school the entire movie. Shredder was the villain. And then part of the process of making this—and that’s one of the amazing things about animation—is because you don’t have to do a live-action shoot on a compressed schedule, you have a lot of time to make decisions and make sure that you’re making the best decision. And we dropped some of that out. Maybe halfway through we’re like, ‘It can’t be Shredder. He’s a human. It’s too much, too soon. He’s too big of a presence.’

After years of being sheltered from the human world, the Turtle brothers set out to win the hearts of New Yorkers and be accepted as normal teenagers through heroic acts,” reads the official synopsis for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem. “Their new friend April O’Neil helps them take on a mysterious crime syndicate, but they soon get in over their heads when an army of mutants is unleashed upon them.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem features the voices of Nicolas Cantu as Leonardo, Brady Noon as Raphael, Micah Abbey as Donatello, and Shamon Brown Jr. as Michelangelo. The film also stars Jackie Chan as Master Splinter, Ayo Edebiri as April O’Neil, Seth Rogen as Bebop, John Cena as Rocksteady, Hannibal Buress as Genghis Frog, Rose Byrne as Leatherhead, Ice Cube as Superfly, Post Malone as Ray Fillett, Paul Rudd as Mondo Gecko, Maya Rudolph as Cynthia Utrom, Natasia Demetrious as Wingnut, and Giancarlo Esposito as Baxter Stockman.
