To the delight of fans and nihilists everywhere, Nickelodeon announced a new Invader Zim film. Picking up exactly where the original Nickelodeon series left off, Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus marks the Irken's first on-screen appearance since the early 2000s. The creators released the first teaser footage of Enter the Florpus at Comic-Con 2018, confirming the reappearances of many beloved characters from the original series.

After its cancellation, Invader Zim reemerged in an ongoing comic series in 2015. Many of the comic's characters and themes will appear in the film, including the one and only Recap Kid. And who knows, maybe the movie will confirm some of the more controversial Invader Zim fan theories out there.

Enter the Florpus is reportedly less of a reboot and more a continuation of where Invader Zim left off. A 90-minute film set to premiere on Nickelodeon, it follows Zim after he learns his leaders, the Almighty Tallest, have abandoned plans to take over Earth, delivering a blow to Zim's confidence.

It's just a kid in a hoodie," he said regarding Recap Kid. Another character, a "tiny moose" named Minimoose, is also genderless.
