While I can’t say that I’ve been crossing my fingers in the hopes that someone will make an animated series out of the film Napoleon Dynamite, learning that the original cast is returning to lend their voices to this new Fox comedy, added to the trailer we have to show you, I'm more curious about this show than I expected to be.
It’s time to brush up on your Rex Kwon Do and knowledge of Ligers and other mythical creatures because Napoleon’s back! As I mentioned, the original cast is signed on to voice their respective roles, including Jon Heder, Aaron Ruell, Tina Majorino and Sandy Martin. Fox also promises guest voices by Jennifer Coolidge, Sam Rockwell, and Flight of the Conchords Jermaine Clement.
Below is Fox’s synopsis for the series and further down is the trailer:
Napoleon Dynamite will begin airing Sundays at 8:30 p.m. ET on Fox during Midseason 2012.
