Imagine you’re a kid. Well, ok, that’s probably pretty easy. Now imagine you’ve also got magical fairy God Parents that will grant you all kinds of special wishes. Better, right? Now imagine that when you grow up, you lose those fairy guardians. Terrible! Well, that’s the challenge that Timmy faces with Nickelodeon presents the upcoming, future-set movie A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner. The special, a mix of live action and CG animation, takes Nick’s The Fairly OddParents animated series 13 years to the future, where Timmy is now 23, and refusing to grow up. Why? Because “Da Rules” say godchildren lose their fairies when they do, and Timmy would have to leave Cosmo and Wanda behind. We’ll get the sneak peeks when we can, and look for the debut of this movie next year, 2011.
Drake Bell, from Drake & Josh, will star as Timmy, with Seinfeld’s Jason Alexander as the live action Cosmo and Curb Your Enthusiasm’s Cheryl Hines as Wanda. Daran Norris and Susanne Blakeslee will voice the CG Cosmo and Wanda, respectively.
When Tootie (played by Daniella Monet) appears as a gorgeous, 23 year old young woman, Timmy must decide whether to grow up and be with the woman he now loves, or continue acting like a child to keep the fairy godparents he adores. In the meantime, Hugh J. Magnate (Steven Weber), a larger-than-life oil tycoon, turns his attention to capturing Timmy’s fairies and using their power to fuel his maniacal ambition.
Butch Hartman and Lauren Levine, series creators, will also serve as executive producers. Scott MacAboy will be the co-executive producer, with Savage Steve Holland directing. Butch Hartman and Scott Fellows are writing the script.
