    I think it's because Zim is more popular than Arnold.

    It probably helps that they didn't wait until something was animated to present a teaser trailer. Getting two of the voice actors back to record a few lines is pretty easy to manage by comparison.

    I'm still kind of surprised given that it seemed like this wasn't happening at first. I was never a huge fan of Invader Zim, but it clearly became popular for a lot of people. It's nice that the creator is working with Nick again and that fans will be able to get more Invader Zim at some point.

    I think after the last Hey Arnold movie's trailer spoiling too much they'd want to hold off for a bit :V

    Jhonen says he's been working on it for almost a year.


    Rikki Simons posted a picture of them recording it.

    From Vazquez's Twitter:

    "Looks like I was wrong, everyone! Turns out I've been working on this for almost a year now. Oh, meeeee!!"

    I love how he trolls his fans.

    It is good to see another Nick Movie in development, and now they have a movie from shows of each decade at this point in the works.

    Think again. Invader Zim had 27 episodes and was pretty much over after a year and a half. Hey Arnold had 100 episodes and a movie and lasted almost 8 years ;)

    Our Nickelodeon aired Invader Zim for 4 weeks and then it moved to NickToons :sweat: (I didn't know anyone who had that channel)

    Nice to see Invader Zim also get a 90-minute reboot movie though I have a bad feeling about this Hey Arnold, and Rocko's Modern Life doing well in ratings. Remember how poorly in ratings the Double Dare reunion special and Legends of a Hidden Temple did back in November.:(

    By the way, all three reboot movies will be airing on the main Nickelodeon channel right?

    Well, I'm super hyped.
    I loved the show as a kid, so this news really makes my week.

    I would think if they're going to go through the hassle of bringing a show back(even for just a 90-minute reboot movie) that it would hopefully air on the main Nick channel.

    I think superkeegan9100 meant more popular NOW as in something more talked about and had merchandise and discussion about. I mean does Hey Arnold have it's own yearly con and corner of Hot Topic or any other store or even comic book run like Zim does? A cult hit can be something more popular after ending then something that started out more popular if the fanbase is still loyal and rabid like the IZ one is.

    Actually Double Dare did pretty well in the ratings.... for Nick at Nite which was where it aired and in fact may be in talks for a new run on that channel now actually because it's 1.1 million is actually really good for the Nick at Nite block. Maybe standard Nickelodeon it's not that good but it didn't air on standard Nickelodeon so wasn't judged by those standards. And granted Legends of the Hidden Temple didn't do that well... but Legends of the Hidden Temple was an attempt to just use some of the likeness and a bit of the mythos of the original series without actually really bringing it back. It was trying to be one of those revivals not in canon with the original series but trying to pander to current children's auidences unfamiliar with the license without referencing or building on it properly. Which is in start contrast to these revivals which are actual revivals picking up after the original run and made for the older fans of those shows. Thus why they're bringing back a lot of the original crew and cast for them. Think of it like the Adult Swim Samurai Jack revival which is actually doing good ratings for AS. Granted obviously not making those shows more bloody and adult but same sort of quality and push from what I'm hoping.

    Especially for Invader Zim. I mean this has been something joked a lot about Jhonen for years upon years but I have to admit I never actually thought it would happen with how the show ended and how terrible Jhonen and Nick's relationship was after that. I never thought they would come back for an actual TV Invader Zim project again so seeing this movie actually happening does give me a serious fan gasm and hype even more then the Hey Arnold or Rocko's Modern Life revivals. Especially since though Hey Arnold was denied a proper jungle movie for so long and RML seems like just one of those forgotten classics, IZ was cut off way too soon in it's prime and felt like it had so much left to give. Seriously look around online for all the story ideas and scripts that would of been a part of season 2 or even 3 to see what I'm talking about so to even see a fraction more back into the series is amazing and hope it lives up to the standards IZ held so many years ago.
