Nickelodeon Making A TV Movie Of Invader Zim

Nickelodeon is continuing their '90s cartoon revamp with the inclusion of the cult-favorite Invader Zim as a TV movie, alongside Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie and an untitled Rocko's Modern Life movie currently in production. The series, which debuted on Nick in 2001, followed an alien named Zim who arrived on Earth with imperialistic intentions of conquering the planet (in order to gain favor with his home race). Wildly ineffective but hilariously earnest, Zim and his robot companion GIR attempted to blend in and study the human race while simultaneously trying to enslave it.

Four original voice cast members, Richard Horvitz (Zim), Rikki Simons (GIR), Andy Berman (Dib), and Melissa Fahn (Gaz), will return for the 90-minute movie, which picks up on a "perpetually desperate and delusional" Zim hatching a new plan to achieve his goal. There's no word on whether or not show creator Jhonen Vasquez will be involved though.
