Boys action series Slugterra is headed for the big screen in a new feature-length original movie production, Slugterra: Return of the Elementals, courtesy of Nerd Corps Entertainment, Shout! Factory and Screenvision.

The 70-minute film will see a limited theatrical release in the U.S. this August. It will be ripe with opportunities for promotional tie-ins, several of which are currently underway with partners.

The film will continue the story from the TV series currently airing worldwide on Disney XD and free TV. More information on tickets and locations will be released this summer.

To date, Nerd Corps has signed deals with more than 40 licensees for the property, and new products will be hitting shelves throughout 2014.
