- TMNT movie sequel sorta news.2

While I can't give it a full thumbs-up (there remains one new and substantial issue to be resolved), I'm happy to report that Imagi has successfully renegotiated its distribution deal with Warner Brothers for the potential TMNT movie sequel, so at least that particular hurdle has been passed. The next meeting between Mirage and Imagi is scheduled for mid-December, at which point the new issue will be discussed and hopefully resolved to everyone's satisfaction. To be continued. Again.

Preliminary character designs of April and Casey for the 2K8 season. "A bit more movie," eh?

4Kids' in-house design group for the '08 season:

Roy Burdine (art director), Adrian Barrios (character design), Keith Conroy (layout supervisor), Edwin Nebres (props/storyboards), Andrew Bradshaw (prop design).
