Netflix to Premiere 'Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus' on Friday, August 16th, 2019

Prepare your filthy human minds for impending doom! Netflix and Nickelodeon's Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus, from original Invader ZIM series creator Jhonen Vasquez, will release on the streaming platform globally on Friday, August 16th, 2019! TIME TO SING THE DOOM SONG! Check out the new trailer below!:

Netflix's new teaser for Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus shows Zim, his companion Gir, and the Minimoose in a bathroom marked as an “official hiding room.” As the camera pans from Zim poking out the toilet, he begins to laugh menacingly before instructing his computer to follow his lead.

Just listen to that laugh. It’s the laugh of someone who’s been written off as a laughing stock. It’s the laugh of someone who everyone thought would never make a comeback. It’s the laugh of someone who finally did come back and is more glorious than ever. It’s the laugh of Zim.

In Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus, Zim discovers his almighty leaders never had any intention of coming to Earth and he loses confidence in himself for the first time in his 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.

Created by Jhonen Vasquez, Invader Zim premiered on March 30, 2001, running for 27 episodes over two seasons on Nickelodeon, winning an Emmy Award and an Annie Award for individual achievement in animation (which went to storyboard artists Kyle Menke and Steve Ressel, respectively) - and getting “The Doom Song” stuck in jillions of puny human heads. The series chronicles an alien named Zim who arrived on Earth from his home planet of Irk with imperialistic intentions of conquering the planet (in order to gain favor with his Irken 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. Despite Zim and GIR's subpar disguises, the only humans who realize they are extraterrestrials are school-aged paranormal investigator Dib. Invader ZIM boasts a devoted fandom. The series is produced by Nickelodeon.

The 2D-animated TV movie, produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, will see original voice cast members Richard Horvitz (The Angry Beavers) and Rikki Simons return as fan-favorites ZIM and GIR, alongside Andy Berman as Dib Membrane and Melissa Fahn as Gaz Membrane. Additional voice actors reprising their original series roles include: Wally Wingert as Almighty Tallest Red; Kevin McDonald as Almighty Tallest Purple; 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, as well as Jhonen Vasquez, Eric Bauza, Breehn Burns, Justin Roiland, Fred Tatasciore, Jenny Goldberg, Mo Collins, and Michael McDonald.

In addition to the new trailer, Nick and Netflix has unveiled a new poster for Invader ZIM: Enter the Florpus, as well as new stills from the film. Check out them out below!:
