Fox Orders Animated ‘Napoleon Dynamite’ Show

Monday, October 11 by

Fox has picked up 6 episodes of the animated adaptation of 2004′s most quoted movie, Napoleon Dynamite. Deadline has the deets:

The original cast of Napoleon Dynamite led by Jon Heder is back to voice the animated series, which follows the misadventures of an awkwar high school teenager and his quirky friends as they struggle to navigate life in rural Idaho. The film’s writers Jared Hess, who also directed it, and Jerusha Hess wrote the adaptation with The Simpsons veteran Mike Scully.

Seems like the perfect movie to turn animated considering the film itself is insanely over the top. I always understood the llama for a pet and awkward teenage boy desperately in need of psychological counseling, but side ponytails? C’mon, no one wears those anymore!
