It has been 12 years since we last saw our favorite extraterrestrial embark on his adventures to conquer Earth, but it looks like he’s back for more excitement! Invader ZIM fans, get ready for ZIM and GIR to conquer your TV screens in the highly-anticipated, brand new Nickelodeon TV movie, Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus.
Nickelodeon had an endless amount of fun in store for all San Diego Comic Con attendees including a magnificent panel where the network debuted an exclusive first-look at the Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus movie. During the panel, series creator Jhonen Vazquez was reunited with original voice cast-members: Richard Horvitz (who voices the role of ZIM), Rikki Simons (who voices the role of GIR), Wally Wingert (the voice of Almighty Tallest Red), and Kevin McDonald (the voice of Almighty Tallest Purple). The panel also featured Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus art director Jenny Goldberg and was moderated by Hector Navarro.
According to the press release, “The panel featured a look at the history of INVADER ZIM, including classic moments from the original TV series and popular comics, and hinted at what’s to come in the upcoming TV movie, revealing an exclusive sneak peek of new artwork and first-look footage.”
Here’s what fans can look forward to in this extraordinary, new movie, “In INVADER ZIM: Enter The Florpus, ZIM discovers his almighty leaders have no intention of coming to Earth and he loses confidence in his own amazingness for the first time in his amazing life, which is the big break his human nemesis Dib has been waiting for. At some point, GIR rides a tiny donkey, and that’s all anyone should really care about.” (source: press release)

Additional voice actors reprising their original series roles include: Wingert and McDonald as the Almighty Tallest Irken leaders; Rodger Bumpass as Professor Membrane, Dib and Gaz’s father; Olivia d’Abo as Tak, ZIM’s Irken nemesis; and Paul Greenberg as Poonchy, one of ZIM and Dib’s human classmates.” (source: press release)
