Netflix takes Nickelodeon movie, and it’s already a huge hit
This weekend, Netflix released a spinoff film of the Nickelodeon animated series The noisy house, and it is already the number 2 movie on the platform in general. The noisy house premiered on Nick in 2016 and quickly became one of the network’s biggest hits. By picking up the accompanying film, Netflix is also reaping the rewards of this franchise.
The noisy house is an animated sitcom created by Chris Savino about a family of 11 children living in suburban Michigan. It stars Asher Bishop as Lincoln Loud, the middle child and the only boy in the family, with 11 sisters on either side of him. The film – simply titled The Loud House Movie – tackles this conflict directly, pushing Lincoln to step out of the shadows of his sisters. To do this, he goes in search of the ancestors of the family and discovers their roots in Scotland.
Until there, The Loud House Movie receives relatively positive reviews, including from people who aren’t even familiar with the main series. The show has a simple yet nuanced premise with plenty of room to explore, and the film takes full advantage of that as well. Being a feature film, it even takes the liberty of being a bit bigger than a normal episode.
The Loud House Movie also has the benefit of a top-tier cast – including David Tennant, Michelle Gomez, Jill Talley, and Brian Stepanek. The film is written by Jordan Koch, Kevin Sullivan and Chris Viscardi and directed by Dave Needham.
Savino himself has not worked directly on the film, as he has not worked directly on the series since 2017. Although the series is closely based on Savino’s childhood at first, the writer was fired. of the series in October 2017 due to allegations of sexual harassment. According to a report by Cartoon infusion, rumors about Savino’s behavior have been prevalent in the industry for many years.
Savino issued a public apology at the time, saying: “I am deeply sorry and deeply ashamed. Although it was never my intention, I now understand that the impact of my actions and communications created an unacceptable environment. At every stage of my career. , I sought to uplift my colleagues and cultivate a culture of respect. In this goal, I failed. “
Savino was then suspended from The Animation Guild as the show unfolded without him. He hasn’t released any new projects since then, although he continues to get screen credits for productions like this under union rules. The Loud House Movie is now streaming on Netflix, while the main series airs on Paramount +.
