CBS All Access Adds 'The Wild Thornberrys Movie', 'Nacho Libre'

CBS All Access, the soon-to-be rebranded streaming service from ViacomCBS, recently added two more fan-favorite Nickelodeon Movies to its programming library: The Wild Thornberrys Movie and Nacho Libre!, the former of which was added on Tuesday, January 26, 2021!

The Wild Thornberrys Movie

The Nickelodeon cartoon series The Wild Thornberrys gets its first feature-length animated film, directed by show creator Cathy Malkasian with a screenplay by Kate Boutilier (writer of Nickelodeon's Rugrats in Paris). The main character is 12-year-old Eliza Thornberry (voice of Lacey Chabert, Family Guy), a braces-and-glasses-wearing eccentric girl in an adventurous family of travelers. Due to an interaction with a shaman, she has been granted the special power of communication with animals, as long as she promises not to tell anyone about it. Her powers are challenged when her parents, Nigel (voice of Tim Curry, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Home Alone 2) and Marianne (voice of Jodi Carlisle, Aaahh!!! Real Monsters), decide to take the family on an African safari to make a nature documentary. Also along for the trip is snobby sister Debbie (voice of Danielle Harris, Free Willy), feral youngster Donnie (voice of Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers), and pet chimpanzee Darwin (voice of Tom Kane, The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron, Boy Genius, The X's, Avatar: The Last Airbender, The Legend of Korra, Angry Beavers, and Duckman). After her new Cheetah cub friend is stolen by poachers, Eliza is determined to get involved. However, the stuffy Thornberry grandparents get in the way by sending her to boarding school. It's up to Eliza and Darwin to defeat the poachers and save the cub. Also featuring the voice talents of Brenda Blethyn (Vera) and Lynn Redgrave (Gods and Monsters). 2002 | 85min | PG.

Nacho Libre

Jack Black is at his comic best as Ignacio, a disrespected cook at a Mexican monastery that can barely afford to feed the orphans who live there. Inspired by a local wrestling hero, he decides to moonlight as the not-so-famous Luchador "Nacho Libre" to earn money for the monastery -- not to mention the admiration of beautiful nun Sister Encarnacion (Ana de la Reguera). 2006 | 92min | PG.
