The movie will have it’s original cast reprising their roles.
“As a network that prides itself on a 25-year history of creating groundbreaking, hilarious animation for kids, Invader Zim is one of our great loves. It’s been so exciting to see its popularity grow over the last decade through social media, consumer products, and the Zim comic books,” said Chris Viscardi, SVP of Animation Content Development and Production at Nickelodeon.
