Napoleon Dynamite is going to become an animated series

A cartoon series based on the 2004 comedy film Napoleon Dynamite is in the works and the original cast members, including main actor Jon Heder, are reportedly set to voice their former characters.THE FOX network will air an animated series based on the 2004 indie comedy film Napoleon Dynamite next season.
Jon Heder, who played the title role in the movie about a bullied teenager and his friends in rural Idaho, will provide the character's voice in the series, and the rest of the cast will reunite to voice their characters, reports.
The series was written by Jared Hess and Jerusha Hess - who co-wrote the movie, with Jared Hess directing - and "The Simpsons" executive producer Mike Scully. All three are executive producers on the series.
Fox ordered six episodes of Napoleon Dynamite, as well as seven episodes of another new animated series, Allen Gregory, about a world-famous seven-year-old adjusting to normal life at an elementary school.
It seems only natural, but the network that has changed Sunday night into nothing but primetime animation is turning Utah film favorite "Napoleon Dynamite" into a TV series.
Fox has ordered six episodes of the new animated series, which will feature the movie's original cast for the voices, including star Jon Heder, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The "Napoleon Dynamite" series will be voiced by the original cast of the film, and the original writers and directors, Jared and Jerusha Hess, adapted the movie for television with the assistance of Mike Scully, a veteran of "The Simpsons." So far, though, Fox has only ordered six episodes of the series, something Deadline claims is frustrating to the producers of the show.
