Nickelodeon has announced a new live action movie based on the popular Nickelodeon show The Fairly Odd Parents, it will star Drake Bell as Timmy Turner. The movie has officially been named A Fairly Odd Movie: Grow Up, Timmy Turner! and will air in 2011.  Drake & Josh Star Drake Bell will play Grown-Up Timmy Turner; Also Featuring Victorious Star Daniella Monet as Tootie. Jason Alexander and Cheryl Hines Bring Cosmo and Wanda to Life as Live-Action Characters; Steven Weber Also to Star as Hugh J. Magnate

Fairly Oddparnets has been running since 2001 and has had notable specials and movies, but this movie probably will bring the show to a close. According to Marjorie Cohn, President, Original Programming and Development, Nickelodeon/MTVN Kids and Family Group said “It’s so much fun to see our animated characters come to life”  “And who better to bring grown up Timmy Turner to life than Drake Bell, who himself grew up on our air and still remains one of our most popular Nick stars ever.” It sounds good but Nickelodeon hasn't been known for making very good TV movies, but I'm sure Drake can help change that.

The movie centers on Timmy Turner (Drake Bell), but unlike the series, Timmy is no longer a 10 year old boy he is 23, still lives at home, and still attends the 5th grade. Timmy's arrested development stems from his desire to keep his beloved fairy godparents, Cosmo (Daran Norris as his animated form and Jason Alexander as his live-action form) and Wanda (Susanne Blakeslee as her animated form and Cheryl Hines as her live-action form), because "Da Rules" dictates that godchildren lose their fairies when they grow up. But when Tootie (Daniella Monet), a formerly nerdy girl who's always had a crush on Timmy, returns to town as a gorgeous grown-up, Timmy finds himself having very adult feelings for her.

He must decide whether to grow up and be with the woman he now loves, or continue acting like a child to keep the fairy godparents he adores. In the meantime, Hugh J. Magnate (Steven Weber), a larger-than-life oil tycoon, turns his attention to capturing Timmy’s fairies and using their power to fuel his maniacal ambition.
