THE FLORPUS ENTERS NETFLIX
INVADER ZIM AND ROCKO’S MODERN LIFE FILMS TO STREAM ON NETFLIX
The last we heard of Invader Zim was at last year’s San Diego Comic-Con where Nickelodeon revealed a brand new film for the franchise: Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus. Almost a year later we now have an update on the film; it will stream on Netflix this summer!
While the film is still under the Nickelodeon banner, Netflix will be the one the distribute the film first and it will premiere this summer. This may mean that the original series could stream on Netflix soon, as the film serves as a direct sequel. Nickelodeon does have its own streaming service, Nicksplat, in conjunction with VRV so the exclusivity of the Invader Zim franchise is still something to follow-up on.
Zim isn’t invading alone as the Rocko’s Modern Life film will also stream on Netflix this summer. That announcement was made by Netflix Family (they do know it’s not a family show right?). Rocko’s Modern Life was confirmed to be a Nicksplat exclusive so the original show may not stream on Netflix, but we can always hope.
‘90s kids, dreams do come true! The Rocko's Modern Life movie is coming to Netflix this summer, for you to share with your own kids (yes, it's been that long) #RockosModernLife pic.twitter.com/4im3TCJS6J — Netflix Family (@netflixfamily) May 13, 2019
No release date has been revealed yet, but I’m down to binge each show before the films are released.
