Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, coming to Nickelodeon September 17, reunites Raphael, Leonardo, Donatello, and Michelangelo to fight new enemies with a brand new style, a shockingly overqualified voice cast, and a brand new trailer, too.

Alongside the energetic, visually distinct animation style, the voice cast here is a huge draw: Ben Schwartz from Parks and Recreation as Leonardo, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley) as Donatello, Brandon Mychal Smith (Youā€™re the Worst) as Michelangelo, and Kat Graham (The Vampire Diaries) as the first African-American iteration of April Oā€™Neil.

Rounding out the cast is, among others, John Cena (!) as the baddie Baron Draxum, who apparently wants to turn everyone into mutants; Lena Headey (!!) from Game of Thrones as Big Mama, who Entertainment Weekly describes only as a ā€œgiant spider mutantā€; and Sex Pistols singer Johnny Rotten (!!!) as a mutant pig named (seriously) Meat Sweats.

Dang, what a cast. The first episode will have a preview showing on July 20th, tomorrow, at 9:30P pm ET/PT on Nickelodeon. The trailer is below, courtesy of Entertainment Weekly.
