People are shocked that their favourite despondent nerd Napoleon Dynamite is all grown up.

Although the cult classic film was originally released in 2004 – 12 whole years since Jon Heder took on the leading role – people are still surprised to see he’s morphed into a fully fledged man who can grow facial hair.

The women of Twitter seem to think he’s hot shit now too, so long gone are Napoleon’s women troubles.

Although it’s over a decade since the film was released, Heder still regularly posts Napoleon Dynamite memes to his Instagram when he’s not hunting wolverines in Alaska with his uncle.

The film amassed a huge cult following and still has a place in the hearts of many, including its leading man, apparently

Heder admitted a sequel isn’t absolutely off the cards, on BBC Music Get Playing, saying:

Nothing’s written on paper. It’s written in the stars. We have yet to translate the stars. But, who knows? It could happen. I feel that the stories of Napoleon aren’t completely over.

As the internet has decided Heder is flame, we hope he’ll be reviving his dance moves.

Now, someone bring the man his chapstick.
