Nickelodeon UK & Ireland will premiere the brand-new Bruno and Boots movie Bruno & Boots: The Wizzle War Friday 5th January 2018 at 5:00pm!
In the all-new Bruno and Boots film The Wizzle War (1 x 90′), Macdonald Hall is under attack! Where tradition and freedom of speech once ruled the campus, now there is Mr. Wizzle!
Hired by the Board of Directors, Walter C. Wizzle has joined the faculty as Assistant Headmaster to modernize Macdonald Hall.
When the Board of Directors launch an experimental educational program to modernize Macdonald Hall, introducing authoritarian Assistant Headmaster Walter C. Wizzle to the boys of Macdonald Hall and the miserable Assistant Headmistress Ms. Peabody to whip the girls of the Scrimmage Academy into shape.
With a new dress code, demerit points system, surprise inspections in the dormitory, psychological testing, and early-morning wake-up calls with track laps as punishment, he even manages to get under the skin of Headmaster William “The Fish” Sturgeon. No wonder Bruno, Boots and their Macdonald Hall friends are up in arms!
The boys and girls decide Wizzle and Peabody have to go. But how? As they pull out all the stops, they ultimately turn to the theory that “love conquers all” to oust the pair once and for all!
Based on the much-loved Macdonald Hall book series by Gordon Korman (Swindle), the Bruno and Boots movies follow the adventures of Bruno Walton and Melvin “Boots” O’Neal, the most infamous troublemakers at Macdonald Hall, a supposedly prestigious school for boys, and, within their time at the school, Bruno has managed to convince Boots to tag along during countless prank operations.
Featuring an eclectic mix of supporting characters ranging from an an eccentric school genius to a hypochondriac snob, Bruno and Boots’ epic pranks and frequent unintended consequences keep the stories continuously thrilling.
