Coming soon to E4, the Napoleon Dynamite TV series cartoon is just about to air in the US. It’s based on the 2004 film and will feature many of the cast from the film, including Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez, so it should be class.
The animated TV series will be developed by Napoleon Dynamite director Jared Hess with the help of Mike Scully, who was the executive producer for The Simpsons between 1997 and 2001, as well as working on the brilliant Park and Recreation (which is still yet to be confirmed to air in the UK).
In addition to Jon Heder returning as Napoleon and Efren Ramirez as Pedro, Aaron Ruell will be back as Kip Dynamite alongside Jon Gries as Uncle Rico. Sandy Martin is back as Grandma Dynamite and Dietrich Bader will be taking up the Tae Kwon Do slack again as Rex.
Though there is no air date as of yet for the Napoleon Dynamite cartoon on E4, the TV series is scheduled to start in the US on the 15th January 2012 on Fox, which means that it should hit the screens in the UK later in 2012.
