AVGN Movie Alien

Portrayed by
Robbie Rist (voice)
First appearance

The alien is a fictional character that appears in Angry Video Game Nerd: The Movie. The alien's design is supposed to be a spoof of the 8-bit representation of Steven Spielberg's E.T. character in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial for the Atari 2600. The alien's backstory is a spoof of the story of the UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico from 1947. The alien is portrayed in the movie by American voice actor Robbie Rist, best known for voicing Michelangelo in the original live-action Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles films.[1]

Behind the scenes

AVGN Movie alien fabrication

Josh Russell and David Woodruff building the alien animatronic puppet.

The alien character was designed and built by special effects artists Josh Russell and David Woodruff (credited as Davis Woodruff), under the supervision of Frank Willis Balzer. The alien was built as an animatronic puppet, which had to be puppeteered with rods inserted into its body. The rods were later painted out by visual effects artists.
