Pais said: ‘They took me to London to go to Jim Henson’s Creature Shop, and I was in a cast from head to toe, every inch of me except for the two straws in my nose. It is very intense. They then told us that they kept us in that plaster longer than they needed to, just to see if we would feel any discomfort. “
Jim Henson, of course, created the Muppets, and with his Creature Shop, he’s forged an impressive Hollywood legacy ahead of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” This is what the performers in the very observant suits realized at the Creatures Store in London. Leif Tilden, the man behind Donatello, said:
“I went in and Falcor’s head from ‘The Neverending Story’ was right there. I was like ‘Oh my God!’ There’s Yoda in the corner. I’m just curious. These guys are craftsmen. It’s like the NASA of the puppet world.”
Sisti also recalls doing “several months of intense training in New York with a teacher” to prepare for martial arts and weapons displays. “Then we went to North Carolina,” Pais added, “and then we rehearsed the movie almost like a play. Each of us had someone who would operate on our faces. That was. a very close relationship, because he’s basically watching what I’m going to do in these rehearsals, and then seeing how we can create something biologically similar. move with this turtle head.”
In the 2020s, it would be too easy to reboot Ninja Turtles as a live-action CG character, but through hard work and cinematic magic, “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” was able to deliver Give each character a weight and tactile quality that makes them seem more real than ever or will appear on screen again.
