Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, Nickelodeon has released a new trailer for its forthcoming CG-animated TV movie, Lucky. Premiering Friday, March 8, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon USA, Lucky is a hilarious adventure that follows Hap, the unluckiest leprechaun around, and his search for his family’s lost gold.

The hour-long film stars the voice talents of Mark Hamill (Star Wars), Kira Kosarin (The Thundermans), Ron Funches (Trolls), Flula Borg (Pitch Perfect 2) and Gunnar Sizemore (Ben 10). Following its U.S. premiere, Lucky is expected to roll out on Nickelodeon’s international channels and branded blocks across 170+ countries and territories.

Lucky tells the story of Hap McSweeney (Sizemore), a leprechaun cursed with horrible luck after a dragon stole his family’s pot of gold many years ago. While on a field trip to the mansion of the luckiest and most mysterious man in Fortune City, Houlihan (Hamill), Hap and his three best friends Shannon (Kosarin), a hotheaded elf; Sammy (Funches), a gentle giant; and Reggie (Borg), a wild gremlin, stumble upon a particularly familiar pot of gold and must form a plan to pull off the ultimate heist to steal back the McSweeney gold and restore the family’s luck. All of that and more is teased in the TV movie’s first trailer!
