Brad Garrett added to the cast of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows. The Finding Nemo and Planes voice actor will provide the voice of Krang in the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel.
Garrett is taking over the role from Fred Armisen, who had to drop out of the project when the film’s post-production schedule conflicted with his own.
Having appeared in previous iterations of the franchise, Krang is very familiar to Ninja Turtle fans and will likely be watched closely to see how Out of the Shadows handles him:
“’I think seeing Krang is going to be trippy,’ star Megan Fox previously told CS about the iconic TMNT villain. ‘He’s a very weird looking character. They’re going to make him real. He’s not a cartoon.’
Although Krang’s cinematic origins have yet to be revealed, we asked if a potential Dimension X reveal could one day pave the way to the new film series existing in the TMNT multiverse. After all, previous animated iterations of the turtles have crossed over with one another on more than once occasion.
‘Krang opens up some big options,” says Fuller. ‘But that’s the challenge of the movies… Everyone comes to it with a different translation of their turtle knowledge. Someone might not know what Dimension X is… You used to make a movie and just think, ‘This is a great movie. I love the characters. I love the setting. Hopefully, it turns out.’ Now, you kind of have to think, ‘If we open this door, we kind of have to walk through it.’”
