Inside Voice will star Jace Norman (Henry Danger, Splitting Adam, Rufus), JoJo Siwa (JoJo Siwa: My World, Dance Moms) and Daniella Perkins (Knight Squad, Legendary Dudas). It's in production in Vancouver for a 2018 premiere.

The movie follows nice-guy Jeremy Martin (Norman), who, after putting on mysterious virtual reality glasses at the mall, suddenly loses his "inside voice" and starts spouting every thought he has out loud. Making matters worse, Jeremy is running for student council president against his classmate Milly (Perkins), who is full of great ideas to improve the school. Desperate to get back to normal, Jeremy and his sister Victoria (Siwa) must figure out how to convince his brain that he can speak up for himself.

The virtual reality sequences featured in the movie are being developed and created by Nickelodeon’s Entertainment Lab, the network's new division spearheading long-range research and development efforts around new technologies for Nick and its audience. Inside Voice is the first on-air project to feed through the lab.

Norman stars in Nickelodeon's Henry Danger, which is most-watched TV show year-to-date with kids 2-11 and kids 6-11. He'll also serve as a co-producer on Inside Voice.

Siwa has an overall talent deal with Nickelodeon and global consumer products program and will star in her own TV special, JoJo Siwa: My World, premiering at 8pm ET/PT on Saturday 12th August 2017 on Nickelodeon USA.

Perkins will begin production later this year on her new Nickelodeon series Knight Squad, set at a magical school for knights in training. Previously, Perkins portrayed 'Sophia' in the Nickelodeon comedy Legendary Dudas.

Inside Voice is executive produced by Scott McAboy and Michael Sammaciccia. Amy Sydorick is producer.

The Nickelodeon Original Movie was written by Adrian Vina (Liar, Liar Vampire) and is directed by Michelle Johnston (Another Cinderella Story: If the Shoe Fits).
