The second half of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles creative team has endorsed the reboot.

Kevin Eastman has spoken out in praise of Michael Bay's forthcoming movie.

"Sorry to have been away for so long - completely swamped with work - but it is some pretty exciting stuff," Laird wrote on his Facebook page.

"I had been invited to check out the TMNT film development by my friend Scott Mednick over the years, and a while back had a full look behind the curtian [sic] at what writers Appelbaum and Nemec, director Liebesman, and producer Bay are doing - and trust me - it IS AWESOME.

"I'm officially on board, and will share more as I'm allowed... thanks all!"

Bay invoked the ire of fans by saying that the new origin story for the Turtles would see them cast as aliens.

TMNT co-creator Peter Laird has told fans to "wait and see" how the film turns out before judging it.

"It's possible that with enough truly creative brainpower applied to this idea, it might actually work. I'm not saying it's probable, or even somewhat likely… but it IS possible," he said.

Bay recommended that fans "take a breath, and chill".

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will arrive in US theatres on December 25, 2013.
