Peter Laird clarifies his previous statement regarding Alien TMNT

TMNT Co-Creator Peter Laird made a long statement earlier that was met with confusion, as people did not understand if Peter really liked Bay’s idea of the Turtles being aliens, or if he was just being sarcastic. To make his position clear, Peter Laird posted the following in response to blog question:

Did you really get out of what I wrote that I in any way, shape or form LIKE the idea of a planet of Turtles? If so, I guess I have to re-think how I express myself. 

Just so it’s absolutely clear — I think a planet of turtles is not, in and of itself, a bad idea for some kind of science fiction/fantasy story. But as a way to explain any aspect of the backstory of TMNT, I think it is awful and unnecessary.

Of course, we have no idea at this point if the plan is to have a planet of Turtles. It’s probably a good idea to wait and see. — PL

There you have it folks, Peter Laird officially thinks the idea of the turtles coming from the distant space is both awful and unnecessary.

Do you folks share this idea with the TMNT co-creator?
