Enter in the fascinating and high-tech library of Mr. Lemoncello, but there is just one thing, get ready for tons of riddles and adventures before you can escape! Nickelodeon has brought out so many extraordinary, original movies – from fan-favorites including “One Crazy Cruise,” “Rufus,” and many more, and now, Nickelodeon announced its latest project – a highly-anticipated movie based on the New York Times best-selling book, Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library! The movie was produced in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada and is set to premiere on October 9, 2017 at 7:00 PM ET / PT.
The movie stars Nickelodeon veterans, the wonderful Breanna Yde of Nickelodeon’s School of Rock and the incredible Casey Simpson of Nickelodeon’s Nicky, Ricky, Dicky and Dawn. Russell Roberts, AJ Rivera, and Klarke Pipkin also join the amazing cast of the magical movie.
After reading Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library and it being a book that holds a special place in everyone’s hearts and is definitely on everyone’s list of favorite books, we are super thrilled to find out the news that the book will be coming to life in another one of Nickelodeon’s many magnificent masterpieces. Chris Grabenstein, the author of Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library, said, “I’m excited to see what Nickelodeon does with Mr. Lemoncello! So many kids, teachers, and librarians have been asking me, ‘Where’s the Lemoncello movie?’ Now I can tell them it will be on Nick!” (source: press release)
With such a compelling storyline and a superb cast, we know that a lot of excitement is in store as we take a trip to Mr. Lemoncello’s awe-inspiring library.
Let’s learn a little more about the upcoming movie! According to the press release, “World-renowned gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello (Russell Roberts) has built his latest creation–a new state-of-the-art library filled with whimsical and eccentric rooms, where hardcover books fly kids to shelves in the sky, and massive doors open into fantastical worlds. Kyle Keeley, Lemoncello’s biggest fan, is chosen to be one of the first to experience the fun, along with his best friend Akimi, a bookworm named Sierra (Klarke Pipkin), a goofball named Peckelman (A.J. Luis Rivera Jr.), his rival Chiltington (Ty Nicolas Consiglio), and others. The kids must use their minds to complete riddles and collect clues that lead them out of this unique playground of imagination. When excitement turns to jeopardy, this world of wonder begins to spiral out of control as literary characters run amok and chaos ensues. It’s up to the kids to make everything right again or else they won’t be the only ones escaping.”
Michael Sammaciccia, Senior Vice President, Development and Production, Nickelodeon Original Movies said, “We cannot wait to bring author Chris Grabenstein’s imaginative world to life with kids’ favorite Nick stars at the center of all the fun. This is an epic, action adventure story that taps into every child’s passion for books, games and technology. It’s a movie for kids, families and teachers alike.”
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library will definitely be such a phenomenal movie that we all will enjoy watching with our friends and family over and over again. Let’s take a look at what some of the cast-members had to say about their outstanding, new project!
