It was weird the first time in 2004, and it hasn't gotten any less weird since‘«™but the odd couple of Jon Heder and Efren Ramirez are returning with the all-new adventures of "Napoleon Dynamite"‘«™only now they're animated.
On Sunday, January 15, the first two episodes of "Napoleon Dynamite"'s animated adventures will premiere on FOX and virtually the entire cast from seven years ago have returned to delight and baffle us yet again.
Not that Ramirez or any of the rest of the cast have gone into hibernation since '04. Efren was a regular on "Eastbound and Down" down for a while; he was in "Nacho Libre" with Jack Black (directed by the same guy who directed Napoleon, and who's involved with the new animated version), and even did a couple of action pictures, "Crank" and "Crank 2," with Jason Statham. And he's in Will Ferrell's upcoming oddness, "Casa de mi Padre." Overall, Efren's movies have made more than $40 million‘«Űnot bad for a 28-year-old from L.A.
Here's a terrific promo about the upcoming show, complete with Efren and all those other folks. It's great to see the whole team, in front and behind the camera, coming back for the project which you can watch [url=
