Unlike previous incarnations, this version of Leonardo is the rebel and self-proclaimed coolest turtle, instead of Raphael, rather than his normal role as the leader of the team.
Ben Schwartz stated in an interview, that if Leo had an Instagram account, that 60 to 70% of his photos would be his brothers caught sleeping or slipping on things.
Since he isn't the leader, Leo will be more laid-back than his previous incarnations.
Leo also isn't the oldest turtle like in previous incarnations.
According to the Rise of the TMNT concept art reveal live stream, Leo and Raph will have a brotherly rivalry, similar to past incarnations.
Leo and the rest of the Turtles will be 15 years old in Season 1.
Leo will be incredibly intelligent, and slightly arrogant about it.
Leo's got a certain 'swagger' to him. He boasts irreverent charm and a rebel heart.
Since this version of Leonardo is a red-eared slider turtle, he also sports visual marks (red stripes over his eyes and yellow stripes over his arms and legs) which are common and give this species its name.
He will be creating catchphrases for the group to use.
Leonardo will have the closest relationship with Michelangelo and will be taking him under his wing.
