Rugrats will also be returning with a new CG animation look. Similar to Spongebob: Sponge on the Run movie, Rugrats will be ditching the traditional 2D cel animation. Nickelodeon described the upcoming reboot as follows, “features rich and colorful CG-animation and follows the toddlers as they explore the world and beyond from their pint-sized and wildly imaginative point-of-view.”
While the Rugrats are returning with a new look, it’s returning with the original voice actors also. Nickelodeon released a statement expressing their excitement about having the original cast back to reprise their roles as people’s favorite 90s cartoon toddlers.
“Rugrats is one of the most iconic cartoons recognized by fans around the globe, and this original version is one we are taking great care and pride in creating for a brand-new audience. Having the voice cast behind these special characters come together is one of the essential pieces to making the show recognizable and we can’t wait to watch this talented group bring them to life again” said Ramsey Naito, President, Nickelodeon Animation.
This reboot will excite the many fans who grew up watching the Rugrats, while also introducing a new generation of children to Tommy, Chucky, Susie, Angelica, Phil, and Lil.
