‘Napoleon Dynamite: The Animated Series’ Trailer

Slashfilm: ast May it was announced that 20th Century Fox was developing an animated television series based on the 2004 Fox Searchlight film Napoleon Dynamite. A year later, Fox has released the first trailer for the upcoming series, Napoleon Dynamite: The Animated Series. The one minute promo is only a teaser, as the series won’t air until Midseason 2012. Looks pretty much like you would expect, the question is: Is it still funny or are they capitalizing on the popularity of the 2004 indie a little too late?

Few years too late with this, and it doesn't really look that funny anyway.

It's probably not going to be as funny as the movie because it's animated but them getting the whole original cast back together is very nice. I'll give it a chance.

I never even saw the movie so I don't get it.

Megaton4099d ago

I really didn't like the movie the first time I saw it, but it did grow on me after awhile, seeing bits of it every time Comedy Central ran it.

-MD-4099d ago

It's a classic film. You should definitely check it out. Made huge waves in my school at the time of its release.

I used to see tshirts that said "vote for Pedro" and had no clue what they meant until someone told me that it came from that that right?

Megaton4099d ago

Yeah, it's from this movie. Pedro is Napoleon's friend, runs for class president or whatever.

Getting King of the Hill vibes off this one. At least they didn't layoff the animators from that show as well.
