Fred, with his unique brand of humor, has accumulated over 570,000,000 views on YouTube while his YouTube Channel (www.youtube.com/fred) is the second most subscribed to channel of all time with 1.9 million individual subscribers. Through the movie, the millions of fans of Fred will be very excited to meet, for the first time, many of the hilarious characters in Fred’s world that Fred refers to in his YouTube videos. The movie also promises to build Fred’s fan base with its unique blend of humor and zany awkwardness that the entire family can enjoy together.
Nickelodeon viewers already know Fred’s work from iCarly’s “iMeet Fred” episode, which drew 5.1 million total viewers. In fact, Fred: The Movie also stars Jennette McCurdy of iCarly fame.
The film also stars UK pop icon Pixie Lott as Fred’s crush, Judy. Lott, already a major success in the UK, is scheduled to release her first single in the U.S. this summer on Interscope Records. The DVD, featuring an all-new never-before-seen Fred video, behind-the-scenes featurettes, and more, will thrill his current fans and engage new ones when Fred: The Movie hits stores October 5th at a suggested retail price of $19.98. Fred: The Movie will also be available as a Digital Download.
Lucas Cruikshank, who stars as “Fred,” is also the creator of this character that emerged as a YouTube fan favorite almost immediately, with fans and subscribers always returning for more of the zany escapades of this quirky kid. This multi-talented teen has recognized the opportunities that his online community awareness has produced, and he continues to increase his social networking fan base as well as developing deals that broaden not only this character, but his own recognition by Hollywood’s creative community making this young rising star someone to watch for the future.
Fred’s swift rise to fame has crossed over into audiences beyond the Internet. Fred won the 2009 Teen Choice Awards’ “Choice Web Star” and has developed his own line of merchandise where he sold more than 800,000 t-shirts from specialty stores in less than a year. In addition, the first full-length Fred music project: “Who’s Ready to Party?” has completed production and will also be released this fall, with the title track being featured in Fred: The Movie.
Hey, it’s Fred in his first movie! And he is in love with the girl next door, Judy (Pixie Lott). But his nemesis neighbor Kevin, thwarts all attempts Fred makes to see her, and when he finally succeeds in making it over to Judy’s house – she’s moved! With the advice of his super cool dad (John Cena), Fred embarks on an epic journey full of gut-busting fun to find her. So, jump in the kiddie pool and join Fred, Bertha (Jennette McCurdy), and the whole gang for a hilarious good time in Fred: The Movie!
