The new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem animation looks incredible; it follows the current trend for mixing 2D and 3D art styles and is happy to look a little chaotic and random. The days of Pixar's clinical photo-real CG style seem to be over, and I think that's a good thing.

The style of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem can be traced back to 2018's Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse, a film that burst onto the scene with bubblegum chewing, punk-ish bedlam – a riot of vibrant optimism and a clash of animation and art styles that looked like a comic book in motion.
