This is certainly not the first time that Hamill has provided a voice for a character in an animated series.
The “Star Wars” actor began his voice-acting career in 1992 by providing the voice of The Joker in “Batman: The Animated Series”. He went on to work on several other animated series such as “Ben 10: Omniverse” and “DreamWorks Dragons”, further gaining a reputation as a prolific voice actor.
The 5th season of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” will premiere in November this year while Season 4 will air this month. The sequel to the live-action adaptation of the show is due to be released on 2nd June 2016.
