The Fox TV animated adaptation of Napoleon Dynamite will have a special premiere screening night on Jan 11th at the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills, LA. The event will be attended by executive producer Jon Heder (who starred in the original), Efren Ramirez (Pedro), Tina Majorino (Deb), Diedrich Bader (Rex) and Sandy Martin (Grandma). The full cast and creative crew will be revealed in a future announcement.
Fox TV’s Napoleon Dynamite is based on the cult film of the same name, which follows the story of an awkward high school teenager and his quirky friends as they try to live a normal life in rural Idaho. The animated series will feature the voices of the original actors, and will be exec produced by Mike Scully, Jerusha Hess, and Jared Hess. Napoleon Dynamite will join Fox’s Animation Domination block on Sunday, January 15, at 8:30 AM.
