'Napoleon Dynamite' Gets Animated In New FOX Series
Cult movie "Napoleon Dynamite" is heading to the small screen - as a cartoon series. Jon Heder, who played the oddball character in the hit 2004 film, will return to voice the animated Napoleon Dynamite in the new Fox show.
The movie centers on a local high school's race for class president. Using some nontraditional means, Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro (Efrem Ramirez) run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer (Haylie Duff).
Jon Heder stars in the titular role, a carrot-topped oddball with a decidedly eccentric family that includes his llama-loving, dune-buggy enthusiast grandmother.
