After months of waiting, we finallyÂ have a release date forÂ Nickelodeon’s Escape From Mr. Lemoncelloâ€™s Library!
Based on author Chris Grabensteinâ€™s acclaimed childrenâ€™s book of the same name, the fantastical adventure follows a group of friends whose overnight stay in their townâ€™s new high-tech library turns into a daring, dangerous adventure of escape. The book, originally published in 2013 by Random House Childrenâ€™s Books, boasts a 109-week run on theÂ New York TimesÂ Best-Seller list.
World-renowned gamemaker Luigi Lemoncello (Russell Roberts) has built his latest creation–a new state-of-the-art library filled with whimsical and eccentric rooms, where hardcover books fly kids to shelves in the sky, and massive doors open intoÂ fantastical worlds.Â Kyle Keeley (Casey Simpson), Lemoncelloâ€™s biggest fan, is chosen to be one of the first to experience the fun, along with his best friend Akimi, a bookworm named Sierra (Klarke Pipkin), a goofball named Andrew Peckleman (A.J. Luis Rivera Jr.), his rival Charles Chiltington (Ty Nicolas Consiglio), and others. The kids must use their wits to complete riddles and collect clues that lead them out of this unique playground of imagination. When excitement turns to jeopardy, this world of wonder begins to spiral out of control as literary characters run amok and chaos ensues. Itâ€™s upÂ to the kids to make everything right again or else they wonâ€™t be the only ones escaping.
Escape From Mr. Lemoncello’s Library premieres on Monday, October 9th @ 7PM ET/PT on Nickelodeon. Stay tuned for more news on the upcoming flick, as we were on set to speak with the cast!
