Shout! Factory and Nerd Corps Entertainment Bring Slugterra to the Big Screens
Shout! Factory, Screenvision, and Nerd Corps Entertainment have recently joined forces in order to bring the new feature-length original movie Slugterra: Return of the Elementals to U.S. Theatres starting in August 2, 2014.

Slugterra: Return of the Elementals is notable for featuring a new member of the Shane Gang: Junjie, who is a master of the mysterious slugslinging art of Slug Fu. However, even with all five members of the Shane Gang fighting together, they still find themselves struggling as they try to race against time in order to protect the ancient elemental slugs from an evil alliance that wants to destroy the 99 caverns.
“We’re very excited that fans of this action-packed series will have a chance to see their favorite characters on the big screen. This theatrical opportunity underscores our long-term commitment to the Slugterra brand. We’re pleased to work closely with Nerd Corps and partner with Screenvision once again to bring this fun family movie to theatre audiences,” said Melissa Boag, Vice President of Kids & Family Entertainment, Shout! Factory.
“By partnering with Shout! Factory and Nerd Corps, we are pleased to expand our children’s programming offerings to our exhibitor partners, and bring the exciting world of Slugterra to the big screen,” said Darryl Schaffer, Executive Vice President, Operations and Exhibitor Relations for Screenvision.
“We’re very excited to be slugslinging on the big screen!” said Asaph Fipke, CEO of Nerd Corps and creator of the property. “The movie features new slugs, new characters, and some cool twists. It will be a great experience for fans and for anyone who’s new to Slugterra as well.”
