Nickelodeon Making Live-Action Christmas Movie Based on Hit Animated Show

Nickelodeon is making a live-action movie adaptation of its hit cartoon The Loud House, and now fans can take a look at the cast. On Monday, Nickelodeon issued a press release detailing the project — A Loud House Christmas, expected to air in November. The lead role of Lincoln Loud will be played by Wolfgang Shaeffer.

The Loud House launched in 2016 and is an animated sitcom about a suburban family. It centers around Lincoln, the middle sibling out of the family’s 11 children, and the only boy among them. The live-action version will follow Lincoln trying to bring his family together on Christmas and preserve some of its traditions as his sisters drift away into their disparate social circles. It will premiere on Nickelodeon in November ahead of the holiday season.

Finally, the last cast member announced so far is Jahzir Bruno, who will play Lincoln’s best friend Clyde McBride. The movie will reportedly feature other fan-favorite characters from the TV series, and familiar settings from the fictional town of Royal Woods.

The movie is written by Liz Maccie and directed by Jonathan Judge. Judge will also serve as an executive producer, along with Michael Rubiner and Matt Bierman. Rubiner works on the animated TV series, where Stepanek also plays the voice of Lynn Loud Sr. as well.
