Cast of Napoleon Dynamite

The cast of 2004's "Napolean Dynamite" - Diedrich Bader (Rex), Jon Gries (Uncle Rico), Tina Majorino (Deb), Sandy Martin (Grandma), Efren Ramirez (Pedro) and Jon Heder (Napoleon) - reunited to promote the new animated series in Los Angeles earlier this week.

The movie centers on a local high school's race for class president. Using some nontraditional means, Napoleon is determined to help his pal Pedro run a winning campaign and defeat popular girl Summer (Haylie Duff). The carrot-topped oddball has a decidedly eccentric family that includes his llama-loving, dune-buggy enthusiast grandmother.

The animated FOX show will follow the misadventures of the awkward high school teenager and his quirky friends as they struggle to navigate life in rural Idaho. The series premieres on Sunday, Jan. 15.

The film was recently included in a list saluting the greatest movie dance scenes (alongside "Dirty Dancing" and "Footloose.")
