Report of TMNT Panel

From a nice report by Collider on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles panel.
During a lively panel we were shown some brief character intros, Neili’s concept art, clips of test footage, and much more.  Jason Biggs (Leonardo), Rob Paulsen (Donatello), Sean Astin (Raphael), Greg Cipes (Michaelangelo), Mae Whitman (April O’Neil), Hoon Lee (Splinter), and Kevin Michael Richardson (Shredder) were all on hand to share their experiences and individual love for the property. …
Sean Astin was next in line and was asked about Raphael.  Paulsen looked to his left and slyly said, “Yea, tell me about playing Raph.”  After some back and forth, Astin joked how he really was honored to play Raph and even called up Corey Feldman to ask if he was cool.  “OK, OK, we get it. You have Corey Feldman’s number,” Paulsen joked.  Astin also mentioned that despite the feeling of having battery acid poured down his throat after long voice sessions, he loved every minute of it.  Earlier Neili had mentioned The Goonies being an inspiration because of the young four friends being so close, and Astin added that he didn’t think of The Goonies but the hobbits from Lord of the Rings films, which he was a part of.  Right before moving onto Hoon Lee, Biggs joked, “I think it’s time to admit I’ve been slipping battery acid in your drink.”
