Nickelodeon has released three character posters for the upcoming live-action project Monster High: The Movie, which is based on the popular Mattel toy line. My daughters loved these toys when they were younger and they probably would have liked to see this movie five years ago.
Monster High: The Movie follows “Clawdeen Wolf (Miia Harris, just beyond), who was born half human and half werewolf, after arriving at her new school, Monster High. She quickly befriends her classmates Frankie Stein (Ceci Balagot, Shipments from elsewhere) and Draculaura (Nayah Damasen, Grey’s Anatomy), and for the first time in her life, Clawdeen feels like she’s finally found a place where she fits in and can truly be herself, despite keeping her human half a secret. When a devious plan to destroy Monster High threatens to reveal her true identity, Clawdeen must learn to embrace her true monster heart and find a way to save the day.
The film also features case walker (The two otherslisten)) as Deuce Gorgon; Kyle Selig (mean girls on Broadway) as Mr. Komos; House Marci T. (The day of the Dead) as Director Bloodgood; Scottish Ellis Loring (fire station doglisten)) as Clawdeen’s father, Apollo; Steve Valentine (Momlisten)) as Draculaura’s father, Dracula; Jy Prishkulnik (just beyondlisten)) as Cleo de Nile; Lina Lecompte (pursuit of death) as Lagoona Blue; Justin Derickson (When the streetlights come onlisten)) as Heath Burns; Lilah Fitzgerald (honey girls) as Ghoulia; and Nasiv Sall (Descendants 2) as Abbey Bominable. It is explained that “other fan-favorite characters from the Monster High universe will also be seen throughout the film.”
There is also a monster raised animated series in development. There is no official release date for Monster High: The Moviebut it will premiere on Disney+ this fall.
