Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2 has found its Karai

May 27th, 2015 by Marc Comments


The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles sequel has just cast actress Brittany Ishibashi (above) as Karai.

In the Turtles’ story Karai is the child of Splinter but was raised by Shredder to be a villain, given how the first movie changed the story, it’s unclear just who she’ll be in the grand scheme of the story now, although she is, according to deadline, still credited as “Shredder’s daughter”.

It’s interesting that no one seems to remember that Karai was in the first movie, played by Minae Noji (below) so this is actually a recasting…

Anyway, let us know your thoughts in the usual way,

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
