After a 10-year hiatus, Invader Zim, Nickelodeon’s lovable alien menace is making a big comeback with a 90-minute film on Nickelodeon. DOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOM!
The Emmy-winning cult classic series holds a special place in the hearts of most fans. Like the original 2D-animated Nickelodeon series, the film will follow the delusional alien as he hatches another plan to destroy Earth.
“As a network that prides itself on a 25-year history of creating groundbreaking, hilarious animation for kids, Invader Zim is one of our great loves. It’s been so exciting to see its popularity grow over the last decade through social media, consumer products and the Zim comic books,” said Chris Viscardi, SVP, Content Development and Production, Animation, Nickelodeon. “What makes this announcement extra thrilling is the adventure that Jhonen has created for Zim, and I can promise you that it is as wonderfully absurd and strangely heartfelt as any fan of the original series could hope for, and kids seeing it for the first time will love it too.”
The original voice actors for Zim and Gir, along with their human rival Dib and his aloof, annoyed sister Gaz, are all on board for the project.
PUNY HUMANS! Soon you will all know the taste of DOOM. AGAIN.
