'The Loud House Movie' Tops the Charts on Netflix

This weekend, Netflix debuted a movie spinoff of the hit Nickelodeon animated series The Loud House, and it's already the number 2 movie on the streaming platform overall, and the number 1 kids title! The film is also doing extremely well internationally, currently being the number 2 kids title in Brazil and Mexico, and the sixth most popular kids title in India.

The Loud House premiered on Nick in 2016 and has quickly become one of the network's biggest hits. By picking up the accompanying movie, Netflix is now reaping the rewards of that franchise as well.

The Loud House is an animated sitcom about a family with 11 children living in suburban Michigan. It stars Asher Bishop as Lincoln Loud, the middle child and the only boy in the family, with 11 sisters on either side of him. The movie — titled simply The Loud House Movie — tackles this conflict directly, pushing Lincoln to get out of his sisters' shadows. To do so, he goes looking in the family's ancestry and discovers their roots in Scotland.

So far, The Loud House Movie is getting relatively positive reviews, including some from people who are not even familiar with the main series. The show has a simple but nuanced premise with a lot of room to explore, and the movie takes full advantage of that as well. Being a feature film, it even takes the liberty to be a little grander in scope than a normal episode.

The Loud House Movie also has the benefit of an A-list cast — including David Tennant (Doctor Who, Good Omens), Michelle Gomez (Chilling Adventures of Sabrina), Jill Talley (SpongeBob SquarePants) and Brian Stepanek (Nicky, Ricky, Dicky & Dawn, Young Sheldon). The movie is written by Jordan Koch, Kevin Sullivan and Chris Viscardi, and directed by Dave Needham.

The Loud House Movie is sort of canon with the series, taking place between seasons four and five.

Nickelodeon and Netflix first announced plans for The Loud House Movie as well as a animated movie inspired by Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in February 2019, as part of Nickelodeon and ViacomCBS' broader efforts to tap into Nickelodeon's intellectual properties (IP) to continue producing new content for digital and linear platforms. Nickelodeon and Netflix expanded on their pact to form a new, multi-year output deal to produce original animated feature films and television series - based both on the Nickelodeon library of characters as well as all-new IP - for kids and families around the world.

As one of the longest-running animated series on Nickelodeon, the series currently ranks as the number-one animated show on Nickelodeon with Kids 6-11 year-to-date. The property also has been translated into a comic book series, which continues to roll out new stories, chapter books, a digital album and a podcast, Listen Out Loud. The series is executive produced by Michael Rubiner. Kyle Marshall serves as co-executive producer and Ashley Kliment-Baker is art director. Currently in its fifth season, The Loud House was recently renewed for a sixth season.

The show has also been spun-off with the successful companion series, The Casagrandes, which tells the story of 11-year-old Ronnie Anne who moves to the city with her mom and older brother to live with their big, loving family, the Casagrandes.
