well, considering I have seen the Foot Clan in some pics from the new movie, AND the fact there is a Foot Ninja action figure for the new movie, it's probably safe to say the Foot Clan is in the movie. Just not Shredder

Just because the animation is not Pixar-quality is no reason to discount the movie. So far it looks promising. Much more promising than the original live-action sequels. Ninja rap anyone?

ok i think the problem some have with the animation is that they havent seen the comics, it looks like the comics and it looks to be darker like the comics. so i have high hopes, i love remembering my childhood.

Thank god somebody knows who to target with these movies: the nostalgic teens and adults. This could shape up to be something awesome.

I'm hoping that THIS is the classic 80's cartoon revival that everyone will be praising by the end of the year. Screw you, Michael Bay.

I second that, alsanali. This film has a lot more going for it so far than the upcoming Bayformers. Some may be uncomfortable with the animation style, but at least it's clear that the filmmakers on this one are taking care not to spit on the original audience.

It looks like the Foot Clan is led by that girl from the cartoon. Anyways, I'm glad that they're not going for photo-realism; too much risk of the film looking cheesy.

Looks cool. I think the people saying the animation looks crappy just probably aren't used to seeing the dark, gritty style on the big screen, hence why they think it looks like a video game (which tend to be a lot darker and grittier than annimated films.)
