The Casagrandes Movie is directed by Miguel Puga and written by Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May, Lalo Alcaraz and Rosemary Contreras. The movie was produced by Nickelodeon Animation Studios Inc.

The Casagrandes movie will follow The Loud House Movie, a made-for-TV film produced by Nickelodeon for Netflix, which was released in August 2021.

A spin-off from The Loud HouseThe Casagrandes follows the dynamics of a multi-generational Latino family that lives under one roof. The series centers on Ronnie Anne Santiago (Izabella Alvarez), who moved to Great Lakes City with her brother Bobby (Carlos PenaVega) and her mother Maria (Sumalee Montano). She is now living near her extended family, including her grandparents Hector (Ruben Garfias) and Rosa (Sonia Manzano), her aunt Frida (Roxana Ortega) and uncle Carlos (Carlos Alazraqui), and her cousins Carlota, C.J., Carl, and Carlitos. Rubiner is executive producer and Puga serves as co-executive producer. Award-winning cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz is a consulting producer.

The Casagrandes debuted in 2019, and aired for a total of 60 episodes over three seasons, as well a raft of animated shorts as part of Nick's Shorts Showcase by the end of its run in September 2022. Although the series isn't being renewed for a fourth season, characters from The Casagrandes will continue to appear on The Loud House, the show it was spun-off from.

The Casagrandes stars Izabella Alvarez (Westworld) as 11-year-old Ronnie Annie, Carlos PenaVega (Big Time Rush) as her brother Bobby and Sumalee Montano (Nashville) as her mom Maria. Alvarez, PenaVega and Montano bring these characters to life, alongside: Carlos Alazraqui (Rocko's Modern Life, The Fairly OddParents, Kamp Koral: SpongeBob's Under Years) as Carlos, “Tio;” Roxana Ortega (The League) as Frida, “Tia;” Alexa PenaVega (Spy Kids) as Carlota; Jared Kozak (Born this Way) as CJ; Alex Cazares (The Boss Baby: Back in Business) as Carl; Ruben Garfias (East Los High) as Hector, “Abuelo;” and Sonia Manzano (Sesame Street) as Rosa, “Abuela.” Additionally, Eugenio Derbez (Dora and the Lost City of Gold) gives voice to Dr. Santiago, a physician living and working in Peru, who is Ronnie Anne and Bobby’s father.

Ronnie Anne’s new apartment building holds new friends and neighbors, including: Ken Jeong (Dr. Ken) as Stanley Chang; Melissa Joan Hart (Clarissa Explains It All, Sabrina the Teenage Witch) as Becca Chang; Leah Mei Gold (Legion) as 12-year-old Sid Chang, Ronnie Anne’s new friend; and Lexi Sexton as Adelaide Chang, Sid’s 6-year-old little sister.

The show was nominated for Outstanding Children's Animated Series and won Outstanding Main Title for an Animated Program at the 2020 Daytime Emmy Awards. Ronnie Anne and her family were introduced in The Loud House. Both series have been translated into successful graphic novel and podcast series. The Loud House and The Casagrandes are available to stream on Paramount+.

Charlie Adler (“Rugrats”) serves as the voice director. Production is overseen by Mollie Freilich, director of current series animation at Nickelodeon. A third season is currently in development.

The original RUGRATS series launched August 11, 1991, and instantly became a groundbreaking phenomenon, spawning consumer products and three hit theatrical releases, cementing its place in pop culture history through its iconic characters, storytelling and unique visual style. RUGRATS was in production for nine seasons over the course of 13 years. The series earned four Daytime Emmy Awards, six Kids’ Choice Awards and its own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Did You Catch These 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Easter Eggs?

Animated series fans will recognize the cabbage man, Flopsie, and more nods to the original Nickelodeon cartoon.

Cabbage Merchant in Netflix's 'Avatar: The Last Airbender'

This article contains major character or plot details.

When Paul Sun-Hyung Lee stepped onto the set of Netflix's Avatar: The Last Airbender, his first reaction was simple: “Just nerding out,” the actor, who plays Uncle Iroh told Tudum. “I saw Sokka’s club, I saw Aang’s glider, the Pai Sho coin that Iroh has with the White Lotus on it….” 

In fact, the number of hidden (and not-so-hidden) references in the live action series to the original animated version is “bountiful,” says Lee. Showrunner Albert Kim says that he and his team purposefully paid tribute: “There’s a lot of Easter eggs in the show that hopefully fans will have fun digging out.” 

Elizabeth Yu, who plays Fire Nation princess Azula, told Netflix that she and her castmates couldn’t help but become megafans of the animated series while filming. “Everything we’ve done comes out of a true appreciation and respect for what this show means to fans,” she said. “Because it means so much to us as well.”

To see exactly how they paid homage, read on to learn more about the biggest Easter eggs in Avatar: The Last Airbender.

Daniel Dae Kim as Ozai in season 1 of ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’

1. Four members of the animated show’s voice cast appear in the Netflix series.

Those would be Daniel Dae Kim (Fire Lord Ozai in the live action, General Fong in the animated series), Clyde Kusatsu (Pasang in the live action, several voices in the animated series), George Takei (Koh in the live action, prison rig warden in the animated series), and James Sie (aka the one and only Cabbage Merchant).

Lee was so excited about the Cabbage Merchant that he took a picture of the cabbage cart and was tempted to post it online as the show was filming, just to show fellow fans of the series, saying, “Don’t worry, we got this, folks. We’re doing this right. We’re not just sitting here playing pinochle on the side. The attention to detail is right there, and everybody cares about it.”

Ian Ousley, who plays Sokka, agrees, saying, “Getting to meet [Sie] and say ‘My... My... My cabbages!’ with him was incredible. We did it so much. We got it on tape!”

2. King Bumi’s palace contains several statues and paintings of Flopsie, his pet goat gorilla. (Yes, goat gorilla.)

“We weren’t able to use the living Flopsie in our story,” explains Kim, “but you not only see these giant statues of Flopsie there, you see portraits of Flopsie on the wall and you realize that this was someone important to Bumi in the past. Fans will pick it up! I don’t think any of the new viewers will know what any of that means, except that that looks like a really strange creature.”

3. The Blue Spirit mask is hanging in the far back of a kiosk in Omashu Market.

Eagle-eyed fans should look out for a few more iconic masks from the animated series.

4. Aang crashes his air scooter into a statue in Episode 2, “Warriors,” a direct homage to the famous title sequence of the animated series.

“I saw Aang’s glider, and I was like, ‘Oh!’ and just died over that,” says Lee.

5. Many of Bumi’s lines come directly from the original cartoon.

Including one of his most famous puns: “Lettuce leaf.” (Let us leave, duh.)

6. The fifth episode of the season, “Spirited Away,” features bar patrons in the Earth Kingdom recounting stories they’ve heard of the Avatar’s exploits, which all come from the original series.

“They reference actual episodes,” Kim confirms. “So you realize time has passed and they’ve had adventures that we haven’t seen in between episodes — and they’re all direct references to actual stories from the first season of the animated show."

7. Katara is seen eating her favorite food at the Agna Qel’a feast in Episode 7, “The North.”

That’s right: stewed sea prunes.

8. An interaction between Sokka and Yue in that same episode echoes a very funny exchange between the characters in the animated series.

When Aang returns from seeing Avatar Kuruk, he spots Sokka giving Yue a gift. She thinks it’s a bear, but it’s actually a carving of a fish that Sokka made for her.

9. Costume designer Farnaz Khaki-Sadigh and team kept the color palettes of the original animated series for each nation’s costumes.

The Air Nomads wear orange, yellow, rust, and saffron; the Fire Nation is outfitted in every shade of red; the Earth Kingdom’s hues evoke springtime with greens, browns, and purples; and the Water Tribe’s costumes draw inspiration from the Arctic with countless shades of blue, from ice to azure.

10. Avatar Roku’s costume references his companion, a dragon.

Although Avatar Roku’s companion isn’t seen in the new series, his costume incorporates scales by way of acknowledgment.

11. The first piece of music licensed from the original animated series was “Leaves from the Vine.”

It was especially important to play the song during Lu Ten’s funeral scene in Episode 4, “Into the Dark.”
