After six years of quotations and impersonations, 2004’s cult classic hit Napoleon Dynamite is returning. Only they’re bringin him back as a cartoon. According to a report from MediaBistro 20th Century Fox is developing pilot for a proposed animated series. Most of the original cast have signed on to reprise their roles from the film, including: Jon Heder as Napoleon Dynamite, Efran Ramirez as Pedro, Aaron Ruell as Kip Dynamite and Jon Gries as Uncle Rico. The report also goes on to say that director Jared Hess and co-screenwriter wife Jerusha will be involved. In addition, if Fox picks the project up they will add it to their Sunday night lineup.
So, not only is this a sign that Fox is officially out of ideas but aren’t they 6 years too late with this? Way to strike while the iron is hot Fox, way to go. Actually, isn’t it trendy to hate on Napoleon Dynamite nowadays? Sure the flick was hilarious when it was an underground hit but ever since it hit the mainstream and got over qouted and over exposed it’s been culturally shit on. Folks would rather be mauled by a liger than watch a Napoleon Dynamite cartoon. “Gosh” Fox is an “Idiot”.
