The stars of “Napoleon Dynamite” celebrated the 10th anniversary of the film’s release by reuniting to unveil a bronze statue of the titular character in Los Angeles on Monday.

Since its release in 2004, the comedy has become a cult favorite, and a decade later, the cast including Jon Heder, Haylie Duff, Efren Ramirez, Tina Majorino, Sandy Martin, Shondrella Avery, and director Jared Hess gathered at the Fox Studio lot in Los Angeles to celebrate the movie’s success.

The cast revealed a bronze statue of Napoleon Dynamite himself, wearing his signature ‘Vote for Pedro’ shirt and moon boots, and also participated in a question and answer session following the unveiling.

The comedy starring Heder as a hapless high school student grossed nearly $45 million at the U.S. box office and went on to become a top-selling home release.
