Plot Summary

22 years ago, Rita and Lynn Loud Sr. met on a school crosswalk and immediately became smitten the moment they laid eyes on each other. After a few dates, they eventually married, bought their own house, and Rita gave birth to eleven children: eldest Lori, fashionista Leni, musician Luna, comedian Luan, athletic Lynn, only son Lincoln, gothic Lucy, polar opposite twins Lana and Lola, genius Lisa, and baby Lily ("Life is Better Loud").

In the present, Lincoln is teaching Lily how to obtain a breakfast burrito, since their sisters would most likely beat them to it before they're all gone. However, the sisters are one step ahead of them, and after Lincoln successfully launches the girls out of the house, he and Lily are prepared to eat their breakfast burritos. Unfortunately, the girls eventually get back inside and have a massive brawl over the food, where Lincoln and Lily, hiding under the table, are successful in obtaining one while the other sisters fight for theirs. During their scuffle, Rita stops the fight to inform Lola that she has a pageant recital, when suddenly, all the other sisters remark that they have activities to do today. As Rita and Lynn Sr. begin to panic, saying they're not prepared for this, Lincoln tells them that he knows what to do.

After Lincoln gives each of his sisters their respective equipment, the family spends the entire day partaking in the numerous activities, like Lori at her golf tournament, Leni at her fashion show, Luna at her concert, Luan at her comedy performance, Lynn at her soccer match, Lucy at her Mortician's Club event, Lola at her pageant, Lana at her race (working in pit crew), and Lisa at her science convention. At dawn, as the Louds eat at Lynn's Table, everyone recognizes the sisters and quickly run up to them to see them. In the ensuing chaos, Lincoln is dragged away from his family and Scoots, exiting the building, accidentally takes Lincoln outside, with the door accidentally locking him out. As Lincoln looks on through the window, he discovers that his sisters are all beloved by everyone, and realizes that he has nothing to show, prompting him to express a desire to be in the spotlight for once and feel like he's special as well ("Ordinary Me"). At Clyde's house, Lincoln bemoans to his friend that he's always going to be in his sisters' shadows. In an attempt to cheer him up, Clyde offers him some cream puffs he made. After eating one, Lincoln begins to cry, because he realizes that his own friend has a special talent as well (as well as pointing out that he won countless awards for his baking skills). This makes Clyde remark that his skills in baking simply runs in the family. He further elaborates that he once went to France with his grandmother, Gayle, and learned that his ancestral grandmothers were excellent bakers, and that passion for baking passed onto them. This story immediately enlightens Lincoln's mood, saying that he got an idea as a result.

At the Loud House, as the family is getting themselves ready for bed, Lincoln asks his parents where their ancestors came from. Rita remarks that her ancestors came from Royal Woods, but Lynn Sr. remarks that he doesn't know where his came from. Lincoln further explains that if they find out, they can go there and learn more about their ancestors, to which the sisters take a liking to, knowing that it means a vacation. Lisa offers to find out, and simply has to get some DNA from Lynn Sr. After a ride in a centrifuge machine, being dunked in a water tank and being poked to be tickled, Lynn Sr., in a dazed state, drools some saliva out of his mouth, which Lisa promptly collects (with Lincoln commenting that she could've just asked him to spit in a cup instead, to which Lisa says to be the "boring" way). After running the numbers, Lisa concludes that Lynn Sr.'s side of the family hail from Scotland, much to the kids' fascination. At their insistence, Rita and Lynn Sr. agree to go vacation in Scotland. Unfortunately, the money jar they use to save for trips is empty (save for one quarter), as Lola had spent it all to keep her teeth shiny. Not giving up just yet, Lincoln says that they can still go to Scotland, as they have to be a little "adventurous".

After a hectic road trip that involves riding in the cargo load of an airplane, parachuting into France, flying in a hot air balloon, and landing in the ocean to hitch a ride in a submarine ("Now or Never"), the family finally arrives to Scotland. As the family exits the sub to examine the sights, Lori decides to call up her boyfriend Bobby to deliver the news. As Bobby answers her call in Great Lakes City, the two attempt to talk to each other, but only seconds into their call, the reception becomes distorted, and Lori, trying to tell Bobby "I love Scotland." and "You're breaking up. I can't hear you." is garbled into "I love Scot- Breaking up... you." This causes Bobby and Ronnie Anne, who overheard the entire conversation, to believe that Lori just broke up with him and is love with another guy named Scott. Encouraged by his sister to prove that he's meant for Lori, Bobby decides to do just that, and proceeds to head to Scotland personally.

As the Louds enter the Scottish town, they ask a nearby fisherman on where they can find Loud relatives, and the fisherman responds by running away while frantically saying their last name, much to their bewilderment. As they venture around the town, they discover other oddities, like a door built much higher than the sidewalk, the signs being too jumbled to be comprehended, and the bell tower using a small bell instead of a giant one. Before long, the citizens begin to converge on the Louds, and one of the citizens asks them if they're really Louds, to which the family agrees. This causes the citizen to tell them that they're in the town of Loch Loud, which is named after their ancestors some 400 years ago. After he and the rest of the citizens explain their history ("This Town Is Named for You"), he guides them to the castle where their ancestors once lived. Once they arrive, the citizen introduces himself as Angus, the Loch Loud groundskeeper, and once they enter the castle, they meet Morag, the castle's caretaker. Lincoln asks Angus if he knows any more info about their ancestors, and he proceeds to show them a painting of their ancestors, which looks exactly like the Loud family (one son and ten daughters). As the parents and sisters proceed to look around the castle, Lincoln asks if the sisters in the painting were special, and Angus agrees, but before he could explain further, the sisters tell Lincoln to come look at what they found. Arriving to a hallway, he discovers that each of the sisters has their own bedroom, complete with a working toilet. After exploring all the rooms, Lincoln meets up with Angus, where he proceeds to tell the young boy that while the girls may have been special, his ancestral double, the Duke of Loch Loud, was the most special member of the family, and Lincoln gets to stay in his former room, which is the biggest bedroom in the castle. At that moment, Lynn and Lana come in and, after complimenting Lincoln for such a huge room, ask Angus why there's are a lot of dragon imagery in the castle, and he proceeds to show them. The moment they leave, Lincoln discovers on a pedestal the Duke's crown.

Entering the cave behind the waterfall in the courtyard, Angus tells the two girls that the reason why dragons are celebrated in Loch Loud was because their ancestors had a pet dragon, and before they left, their dragon gave birth to a new one, ready to hatch when the new Louds would arrive. Reaching the end of the cave, they encounter a dragon egg, and when Angus goes to inspect it, he discovers that it hatched. Suddenly, Angus gets tackled, and after a brief scuffle, it's revealed to be a baby dragon who behaves much like a dog. Moved by its cute appearance, they proceed to show the rest of the family, with Lily naming the creature Lela. As the family admires Lela, Lincoln reveals himself wearing the Duke's outfit, and proceeds to walk down the stairs rather elegantly. Upon reaching the bottom, the sisters laugh, finding his clothes funny and outdated, but Lincoln is unfazed by their insults, saying that he's going to rule Loch Loud. At that moment, Lynn Sr. enters and reveals that he cooked everything for their dinner. As the family (messily) eats dinner, Lily discovers that Lela gets bigger every time she eats, and Lincoln asks Angus how he can become the Duke of Loch Loud, to which he tells him that in order to become Duke, he needs to make life a better place for the village and its people, which Lincoln believes to be an easy task. Later, Angus is guiding Morag to her temporary residence (a hovel, which Angus stayed in). As they walk, Morag nearly lets it slip that her ancestors drove the Louds' ancestors away, when it was widely reported that they left their kingdom and never came back. Once they arrive, Morag grumpily enters.

Inside the castle, Lucy is attempting to make contact with her deceased ancestors, and successfully makes contact with one of them. Later, after having woken up her entire family and bringing them to the main lobby, Lucy introduces them to Lucille Loud, her ancestral double in looks and behavior. This causes the family to be mesmerized by her appearance, expect for Lynn Sr., as he knocked himself out due to his fear of ghosts.

The next day, Morag is trying to clean up the mess the Loud kids made in the hallway. As she cleans, she begins to lament to a portrait of her ancestor, Aggie, who was responsible for driving the Louds' ancestors away 400 years ago in order to achieve peace and quiet. As Morag continues to suffer from the kids' shenanigans (while also reminding herself it's only for one week), Lincoln announces to Angus his plans on becoming the duke. Lincoln proceeds to go around Loch Loud and try to make things better for the citizens so they can christen him as the new Duke, like impressing them with his magic tricks or offering them free breakfast burritos, while Angus reminds him that being a Duke means that he has to put the citizens over himself, and Lincoln manages to win them over by fixing in the other half a broken bridge ("I'm Gonna Be the Duke"). However, Morag ruins the moment by revealing that Lincoln is only staying in Scotland for a week, causing the citizens to believe they celebrated with a tourist and not a permanent resident. At Angus' suggestion, Lincoln tries to convince his family that they should move to Scotland. Using a slideshow presentation, Lincoln explains that moving to Scotland is a good thing as they found themselves and their culture here, and that if they stay, they can get all the fame and adoration they want. Lynn Sr. immediately approves of this decision, but the girls are unconvinced, mainly because they know that Lincoln only wants this to be in a position of power, and because they have lives in Royal Woods regarding their friends and school. Realizing he's outnumbered, Lincoln feigns sadness by lamenting that they can go back home once their vacation ends, "to our house with one bathroom." This one comment alone horrifies the family to the point that they immediately change their mind and decide to move to Scotland.

Sometime later, a full-blown coronation is being held in order to crown Lincoln as the new Duke of Loch Loud. Angus and Morag arrive with the royal scepter and the Duke's crown. After Morag gives a speech to citizens by telling them that Loch Loud has been duke-less for the past 400 years because of the Louds getting lost during a boat trip (which Lucille overhears and is baffled by what was told), she proceeds to place the crown on Lincoln's head, but greatly struggles to do so. Seeing her struggle to do such a simple task, Angus proceeds to assist her by pushing the crown onto Lincoln's head. With Lincoln now officially titled as the new Duke, he and his family begin to bask in their royal status, while simultaneously making life better for Loch Loud ("Loud Castle").

After a day of living life royally loud, Angus and Morag tend to Lincoln's bath. Excusing herself, Morag retreats to a cliff far away from the castle, screams out her hatred of the Louds for 15 seconds, and begins to dig a hole right next to the nearby tree. Back at the castle, Lucille, while observing the rain outside with Lucy, tells her something urgent: Morag's comment regarding her family getting lost while trying to find Loch Loud is a hoax. She explains in a flashback that her family was heading back home to their kingdom, full of spirit. However, when they got close, Lolo, their pet dragon, flew up to them and stopped them in their tracks. Remembering that dragons are considered the protectors of the land, the Duke, who has the closest bond with Lolo, attempts to ask Lolo to let them through, but the dragon responds by firing its fire breath at him. This causes the family to believe that they are banished from their kingdom and, after the duke relinquishes his crown, turn back around while Lolo flies back to Loch Loud. Lucy begins to question why Morag would lie about their fate, and Lucille believes that if they can find the journal of Aggie, who was their respective caretaker, they can get the answer. However, the journal is revealed to be right beside the tree where Morag started digging, which she promptly digs up. As Morag looks through the pages, it's revealed in another flashback that Aggie was controlling Lolo with the royal scepter, which was holding a magical gemstone that, once removed, reverted Lolo back to normal. To make matters worse, Aggie had left the gemstone in the journal, which Morag discovers and realizes that this can be her one opportunity to get rid of the Louds once and for all.

At the castle, Lincoln, after taking a deep breath, calls up Clyde to relay the news to him that he and his family are royal, and that he got crowned as the new duke of Loch Loud. As they talk, Morag, having arrived back, eavesdrops on Lincoln and Clyde's conversation, and hears Lincoln remarking that because of his new position as duke, he's no longer getting overshadowed by his sisters. When Clyde questions how Lincoln can possibly still be the duke once he comes back to Royal Woods, he confesses to his friend that he and his family moved to Scotland. Clyde appears to be taken aback by the news, but eagerly accepts his friend's decision (when it actuality, Clyde is incredibly heartbroken, as he begins to cry into a "welcome home" cake he made for Lincoln). Morag realizes that she just found her perfect opportunity to put her plan into action. After expressing her happiness of fulfilling her ancestor's greatest desire and getting rid of what has become her burden ("The Duchess I Will Be"), Lucy and Lucille confront her and ask where Aggie's old journal is so they can find the truth of what happened to the Louds' ancestors/Lucille's family. Morag pretends that she doesn't know anything regarding their past, and hides Aggie's journal from their sight, but the two spooky girls state that they'll still keep their eyes on her. After sneaking past them, Morag approaches Luna, who is playing the bagpipes. She commends Luna for her musical ability, and tells her that the females of her ancestors were highly beloved because of their quirks and talents. She goes on and says that she and her other sisters should present their talents to the citizens of Loch Loud so they can let their true selves be known to the public. Luna, excited about this news, immediately relays it to the other sisters. Meanwhile, in Lincoln's room, Lincoln and Lily are showing Angus a magic trick where they swap the crown with a breakfast burrito. Once they complete the trick, Angus asks Lincoln if he's ready for his royal duties today. Lincoln says that he and Lily will practice their trick instead, but when Angus says that doing his duties will make the people happy, as they've been waiting for 400 years for a new duke, Lincoln immediately rescinds his last statement and agrees to help out.

Later, in Loch Loud, Lincoln is hard at work cleaning a house's chimney. Despite the hundreds of houses whose chimneys need cleaning, Lincoln, hearing people cheering in the distance, believe it's what must be done to make them happy. Suddenly, a flyer flies into Lincoln's face, showing only his Loud sisters. Fearing for the worst, Lincoln quickly runs into the town centers and discovers to his horror that his sisters are showing off their talents and skills. Their performances end up catching the attention of everyone in Loch Loud, where they unknowingly trample Lincoln. As Lincoln looks on with heartbreak that he's once again overshadowed his sisters, Morag approaches him and, back at the castle, Lincoln complains to her that because he's the Duke, he should be the most special Loud of all. Morag, feigning pity for him, gestures to a painting on a fireplace mantel showing the Duke riding on top of his dragon, and Lincoln realizes that if he does the same with Lela, he can get his fame and adoration back, to which Morag agrees with. As Lincoln goes off to get Lela, Morag retrieves the royal scepter a pile of the Louds' stuff. Later, Lincoln arrives to Loch Loud riding on top of Lela. As Lincoln shows off some tricks to the people, Morag, hiding in an alley, places the gemstone into the royal scepter, and at that moment, Lela becomes hypnotized by the gemstone's power, and begins flying in whichever direction Morag moves the scepter, which Lincoln can't control. Morag proceeds to make a mess of Loch Loud by guiding Lela into the buildings, destroying and/or heavily wrecking them. After causing enough damage, Morag makes Lela land, and when Lincoln jumps off, he discovers the amount of damage caused and tries to keep the people happy that he can fix it. However, after a botched attempt to fix things results in the Chip Shoppe getting destroyed, the furious townsfolk immediately turn against him, angrily chewing him out because how his little stunt resulted in the destruction of their town. Realizing he lost the respect of everybody, Lincoln runs away in tears. As his concerned family follows him, Morag takes the gemstone out of the royal scepter, causing Lela to revert back to normal, and shamefully flies away.

Sometime later, as Lela sadly lies in her cave, Morag arrives with a wheelbarrow of garbage and gives it to Lela, where she begins to eat it, causing her to grow larger. In the castle, Lincoln has buried his face in a pillow, upset that he's now seen as an embarrassment to the people. Suddenly, Lincoln family enters and, after asking if he's alright, tell him that tomorrow, they're going to help him rebuild the town. Unfortunately, just moments later, an angry crowd arrives to the castle doors and demand that he leave Loch Loud, blaming him for losing everything. Seeing how the people no longer admire him, Lincoln decides to relinquish the crown and sadly asks his family if they can go home. Before long, the Loud family has boarded a boat, leaving Scotland. As Morag waves farewell to the Louds, she gleefully believes she succeeded in her mission and proceeds to burn Aggie's journal in a fireplace to get rid any evidence of her wrongdoings. However, the moment she leaves the room, Lucille arrives and retrieves the book from the fireplace, where, after looking through the pages, learns that Aggie had betrayed them. Outside the castle, the angry crowd is informed by Morag that the Louds are finally gone, much to their excitement. However, when the citizens prepare to leave, she lies to everyone by telling them that before they left, they said that she should be the Duchess of Loch Loud. After a hasty coronation ceremony, Morag is officially crowned as the Duchess, but Angus, unable to see her forcefully put herself in a position of power, reveals her treachery to everyone by telling them that the Louds never gave her permission to be the duchess because he was with them the entire time. Seeing the people believe in Angus, as he's known as one of the most honest people they know, Morag braggingly admits that what Angus said was true. This causes the crowd to angrily turn against her, and Morag, now having lost everyone's respect, decides to do things "the hard way" by using the royal scepter with the gemstone to summon the ginormous Lela. Lucille, witnessing all of this, quickly flies off.

As the family sadly sails away from Loch Loud, Lucille hurriedly reaches them. She explains to them that Morag had betrayed them in an attempt to take the crown for herself, and reveals how she was able to do it: she was using a magical gemstone called the Dragon Stone, which, when combined with the royal scepter, has the power to turn any dragon evil. Piecing everything together, Lincoln realizes that the reason why his flight with Lela was so catastrophic was because she was under Morag's control. However, Lincoln still believes he's to blame for everything, as he let Morag manipulate him into being her friend, and says that he must fix things. The sisters tell him that they will help as well, saying that because he always helps them, they will help him in return. Soon, the Loud kids are rowing back to Loch Loud in a dinghy, where they witness the citizens attempting to flee in boats. Arriving to the dock, Angus is surprised to the kids return, and Lincoln reveals that he and his sisters have a plan to get the scepter out of Morag's hands and stop her tyranny once and for all.

At the castle, Morag is in the bathtub, ready to bask in her reclaimed silence. Suddenly, she hears Lincoln's booming voice and, realizing the Louds are back, promptly grabs the scepter to investigate. Back on the ship, Rita and Lynn Sr. are confused by an array of emojis they got from Leni, and when they question what it means, Lily, the only kid still on the boat, tells them that they went back to Loch Loud, prompting the panic-stricken parents to immediately turn around and head back as well. At the same time, Morag, riding on Lela, tells the Loud kids to expose themselves. On cue, the Louds start their plan on getting the scepter out of Morag's hands. This ranges from Luan making insulting jokes about Morag, Luna blasting her and Lela with her speakers, Lori and Lynn hurling balls at her (golf balls for Lori and soccer balls for Lynn), Leni tossing a giant tarp onto her and Lela's head, and Lola blinding Morag with her shiny teeth (magnified by Lisa's glasses). Lucy then calls out to Morag, telling her to catch her. Swiftly, Lucy is grabbed by Lucille, prompting the crazed duchess and the dragon to chase after them. At the dock, Rita, Lynn Sr. and Lily arrive to Loch Loud and meet up with Angus, who's telling them what the kids are doing, and proceed to go after them. Back at the fight, Lucy and Lucille are arriving in Lincoln's direction, and once Morag and Lela arrive, Lincoln quickly jumps onto Lela's back. He stealthily approaches Morag and, seeing her ordering Lela to fire at Lucy and Lucille, immediately tackles her, attempting to get the royal scepter out of her hands. As Lincoln and Morag fight over the scepter, Morag tells Lincoln that the reason why she wants the crown is because it means she'll never have to deal with the Louds ever again. Suddenly, because Morag was too distracted explaining her plan to Lincoln, she is reminded by Lincoln that they're straight for a castle wall. Upon crashing into the wall, Lela protects herself by curling into a ball, the crown falls off Morag, and Lincoln lands hard enough to get knocked out.

The rest of the Louds and Angus quickly arrive to the castle, having witnessed Lincoln, Morag and Lela crashing there during their fight. Arriving to the courtyard, they spot Lincoln's unconscious body and quickly rush over to him, but are suddenly stopped by the still-possessed Lela. Morag and Lela trap Louds and Angus in a corner, and Morag orders Lela to fire her breath at them to kill them off for good. Lincoln, having regained consciousness, witnesses Morag about to harm his family, and before Lela can fire her breath, he quickly jumps into the line of fire with the crown, prompting Morag to hastily stop Lela from attacking. Lincoln tells Morag that if she wants the crown, she'll have to get it from him first. Lincoln quickly runs through the hole they crashed through earlier, and as Lela crawls through, her large size causes the damaged wall to collapse, stopping the family and Angus from reaching them. As the family panics on how to reach them, Lily begins crawling under the rubble, as she's small enough to get through it. As Morag begins to trudge Lincoln towards the edge of a cliff while demanding him to hand the crown over, Lincoln tries to reason with her that there's a better way, but she refuses to listen, and attempts to derail his self-worth by telling him that he'll never be special and always remain in his sisters' shadows. Suddenly, Lincoln witnesses Lily approaching, and proceeds to stall Morag by telling her that he's actually a talented magician, as he begins showing off some of his magic tricks. After presenting enough tricks, Morag orders Lela to fire, when she suddenly realizes that the scepter is holding a breakfast burrito. It turns out that Lincoln managed to stall Morag long enough for Lily to steal the Dragon Stone, and Lela, now back to her normal state and at Lily's command, destroys it with her fire breath. Morag, after lamenting that all she ever wanted was peace and quiet, reaches her wit's end and proceeds to fight the crown out of Lincoln's hands. However, during their scuffle, the three accidentally fall off the cliff, about to plunge into the waters below them. As Lincoln and Lily embrace themselves for impact, Lela swiftly catches them (on her back) and Morag (with her claws) and flies them back at the castle, where the Louds and Angus witness their arrival.

Landing in the courtyard, the Louds thank Lela for saving Lincoln and Lily, and the citizens arrive, thanking the Louds for saving their home and apologizing to Lincoln for doubting him. Lela, having caught the the crown with her tail, hands it to Lincoln and the crowd anticipates the moment he puts it on so he can resume his duties as the duke. Lincoln, after some postulating, gives a speech to everyone by telling them that he originally wanted to be the duke as it would mean he would get to feel as special as his sisters, but realized that he was only thinking about himself and not the others. He goes on to say that Angus has constantly reminded him what it truly means to wear the crown, and that's why he appointing him as the new Duke. Angus initially declines the offer, believing he's just a simple groundskeeper, but after being told by the citizens just how much he does for the town and with the blessings of the ghosts of the ancestors, Angus agrees to take on the new role as Lincoln places the crown on his head. The moment he's crowned, Lela, angry over Morag controlling her in an attempt to kill her masters, scoops the deranged former duchess and drops her off on a small rock island far away from Loch Loud. Morag still believes she has won, as she finally got all the peace and quiet to herself, but in a sudden twist of irony, the island is inhabited by a family of seals who constantly bark at each other, making Morag scream in despair. At the castle, the sisters compliment Lincoln by saying that passing the crown to Angus was so honorable of him, but question what he said about not feeling as special as them. Lincoln confesses that he feels this way because they're all talented in some way, and are constantly praised as a result; winning trophies and getting recognized, while he has nothing to show, making him feeling like he's not special as them. However, the sisters tell him that he is special, as he's always looking out for them every single day, and that's why he's the most special brother to them. Moved by their words, Lincoln declares that he's good with that and, after Lily tells Lincoln that she loves him, the family engages in a group hug.

The next day, the Louds, Angus, Lela, the citizens and the ghosts of the ancestors work together to repair all the damage in Loch Loud ("My Way Back Home"). After fixing up the village, and as the Louds interact with their ancestors, Angus tells Lincoln that he'll miss him once the family leaves, and Lincoln tells him that he's free to call him up whenever so he can give him some good duke advice. Later, the Louds sail away from Loch Loud, waving goodbye to the citizens and their ancestors at the dock. After the ship has travelled a far enough distance, the citizens and the ghosts head back to their homes. At that moment, a submarine arrives at the dock, and Bobby pops out the hatch, having finally arrived to Scotland. Jumping out, he asks the fisherman where he can find Lori Loud, and the fisherman silently responds by handing him a telescope and gestures to the departing ship. Focusing on the ship with the telescope, Bobby discovers Lori on it and, realizing he arrived to Scotland a few moments too late, falls to his knees and screams in anguish.

During the credits, Clyde presents Lincoln with an array of "welcome home" creams puffs, Lori carries a battered, mud covered Bobby (having arrived back to the United States), Leni is in a long-distance relationship with Scott (a boy she met and fell in love with in Scotland), Lincoln has won a 3rd place trophy for a magic act, Lela has laid three eggs, Lynn Sr. still embraces his Scottish heritage by wearing his kilt (much to Rita's embarrassment), Angus and the ancestors work hard to keep Loch Loud in top form, and Morag, having been picked up by Angus in what appears to be a form of forgiveness, is now serving the ancestors (much to her frustration) and has become the new groundskeeper of the castle, now under the watchful eye of Lela to make sure she doesn't do any more misdeeds ("Let's Get Lost Together").

Background information

  • The Loud House is the seventh Nicktoon to get an animated feature film. The first six were Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, The Wild Thornberrys, SpongeBob SquarePants, Rocko Modern Life and Invader Zim.
    • However, The Loud House would be the eighth Nicktoon to get an animated feature film if one also counts Doug's 1st Movie, which was produced by Disney.
  • Because this film was released on streaming/not given a theatrical release, this is the first film made by Nickelodeon Movies to not have the Paramount logo, as well as their first film to not be given an MPAA rating.
  • The movie uses the new Nickelodeon Movies logo first introduced in The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge on the Run, and is one of only three movies to use it (tying with PAW Patrol: The Movie, released the same day as the movie).
  • Although Chris Savino stated at Comic-Con 2017 that the events of the film will be separate from the series, Dave Needham, the film's director, overruled his statement and confirmed that the film is canon to the series, as it is chronologically set between Season 4 and Season 5, since Lily is in her previous design. However, he is uncertain whether or not the show will acknowledge the events of the film in a future episode.[8]
    • Dave Needham elaborates in an interview on the Nerds Social Club Podcast that the film takes place during the summer following the events of "Coupe Dreams".[9]
  • The first promo image of the film features what seems to be the Loud family wearing Scottish clothes. For a while, people have debated whether the image was representing the present Loud family, or the Louds' ancestors. Dave Needham confirmed in an interview on Animation Scoop that the image is of the ancestors 400 years ago.[10] This is further supported by certain scenes in the film, such as when Angus reveals the portrait when the Louds enter their castle for the first time, and when Lucy summons Lucille.
    • In the same interview, Dave reveals that when he signed on as director, he asked Kevin Sullivan and Chris Viscardi on why the film is specifically set in Scotland. The response he got was that Lynn Sr.'s side of the family came from Europe, but they never really specified where, saying they wanted someplace with a castle. Dave immediately approved of their decision to choose Scotland, saying that he has a personal connection to the country, as his sister lives there, while he grew up in Wales.
  • Because of how the ghosts of the ancestors appear like they do in their family portrait, some people have theorized that they died at the age of how they appeared. However, Dave Needham debunked those theories by confirming that they appeared like they do in the portrait because it allowed for easier identifying, saying that it would've been confusing if they appeared as older versions of themselves.[11]
  • The animation for this film was provided by the Philippines-based animation studio Top Draw Animation. The reason why they did the animation for the film was because Jam Filled Entertainment (the show's main animation studio) was too preoccupied working on other projects.[citation needed]
    • Thus, there are a few design changes that only appear in this film:
      • Luan's ponytail is held slightly differently, and her eyes are closer to her nose. (Only visible from the side)
      • Lynn's ponytail has a different design and is held up by a red hairband (only visible from the side and back), and her nose is pointier (only visible from the side).
      • Lori always has bags around her eyes similar to Lincoln.
      • Lynn Sr. has a bald patch between his thinning hair and his back hair (Only visible from the side). His numerous clones that appear during "The Duchess I Will Be", however, do not have this bald patch.
      • The Loud House has several differences:
        • The house is narrower; though this may just be due to camera angles.
        • The dormer roof is pitched down instead of connecting to the roof ridge.
        • The boomerang is on the dormer roof instead of the porch roof.
        • A red kite is stuck on the garage roof, with its rope looping all over the basketball hoop.
        • The stairs have a red carpet on them.
        • The bathroom has windows on the same wall as the mirror.
      • Ronnie Anne looks like a cross between her Season 1 and Season 2 designs.
    • There are also a few general animation differences, as the film was produced on a higher budget:
      • Some backgrounds in specific scenes (such as when the Loud family arrives near the docks) are animated in 3D.
      • Reflections are shown in the water.
      • Lighting and shadows are more visible.
      • The animation is generally noticeably choppier than it is in the show in some scenes.[Please give examples]
  • This is the first piece of Loud House media to be dubbed in Hindi and Ukrainian, despite the fact that its parent series was not dubbed in said languages at the time of its release.

General trivia

  • This film reveals that Lynn Sr.'s side of the family are descended from Scotland, and that the entire Loud family is a part of Scottish rule, as their ancestors were once the rulers of a small Scottish town called Loch Loud.
  • According to Rita, her side of the family has always been in Royal Woods.
  • According to Clyde, his ancestral grandmothers are descended from France, and that they're well-known for their baking skills.
  • The setup of the film is similar to the setup of "Making the Case", as they both involve Lincoln realizing that he has nothing to show while his ten sisters are all beloved because of some sort of achievement or accomplishment.
  • At one point in the film, Angus and Morag reference the theme song:
Morag: "Crashing through the crowded halls, dodging girls like--"
Angus: "Ping-pong balls?"
Morag: "Just to reach the bathroom on time."
Angus: [chuckles] "That's rather catchy."
  • In the Season 5 episode "Rumor Has It", it was revealed that Lincoln's full name is Lincoln Albert Loud. Since the film is chronologically set between Seasons 4 and 5 (and most likely in production before Season 5), this would technically be the first piece of Loud House media to reveal this fact.

According to Dave the 1600s Louds after they left Scotland they Seattle in America in a place called Woods,Michigan that we know now it’s modern Royal woods 😎 #TheLoudhouseMovie ps yup he responded to my first question
Sep 13, 2021[12]
  • According to Dave Needham, after the ancestors were banished from their kingdom by Aggie, they moved to an area in the land that would soon become Michigan called Woods. Sometime between the ancestors' arrival and the present, the area was renamed from Woods to Royal Woods.
  • Some of the seals on the island where Lela drops Morag have some facial features similar to that of the Loud family.
    • One seal has Lincoln's cowlick.
    • One seal has buckteeth with braces, similar to Luan.
    • One seal is missing its front teeth, similar to Lana and Lola.
    • One seal has Lisa's hairstyle and glasses.
  • Lisa's laser eye surgery from the episodes "Making the Grade" and "Potty Mouth" must've worn off sometime before the events of the film because during the battle, when Lisa tries to give Lola a high-five, she ends up slapping her in the face.
  • Flip can be seen wearing his season 1 shirt in the film.
  • Innuendo: When Lincoln explains he's "duke-ing" by going down the stairs in his duke outfit, the twins misinterpret his words by believing he would soil himself (as in "take a duke").
  • Irony:
    • Angus claims that the Duke's name was well-known, but the Duke's name is never spoken in the film.
    • All that mattered to Morag was deafening silence, so Lela proceeded to punish her by dumping her on an island full of noisy seals.


  • Midnight Cowboy - During the beginning of "Life is Better Loud", Lynn Sr. can be seen walking past a theater with the marquee reading "Midnight Cowbell", a reference to this 1969 Best Picture winning film.
  • Braveheart - At one point, Mr. Coconuts resembles Sir William Wallace.
  • The Karate Kid - When Lincoln and Lily obtain their burritos, Lincoln says, "The student has become the master", referencing Mr. Miyagi's line from this 1984 film.
  • Hercules - During the "Life is Better Loud" sequence, Lucy as a baby can be seen playing with a rattle, which resembles the rattle that Hades created in this 1997 film.
  • Donald Trump - When Lincoln sits on the toilet, the newspaper he reads contains a picture of this former President of the United States.
  • Deal with It - During Lincoln's presentation that he uses to convince his family to move to Scotland, an edited picture of Lily depicts her wearing the sunglasses present in this popular Internet meme.
  • Quiet Riot - Luna's line "Come on, feel the noise" is a reference to their hit song of the same name.

    • A younger version of Mr. Grouse can be seen reading a newspaper with headlines that reference other Nicktoons.
      • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles - "Four armed turtles found in sewer."
      • SpongeBob SquarePants - "Advice from Gary — How to come out of your shell."
        • When Lincoln is reading a newspaper on the toilet, a flower cloud and a pineapple can be seen.

  • Renee and Mollie can be seen when Rita and Lynn Sr. first meet in the "Life is Better Loud" sequence, even though they technically shouldn't be born around this time.

TLHM Lola's missing cowlick.png
  • When the sisters are retrieving their trophies while at Lynn's Table, Lola's cowlick disappears.
  • During "Now or Never", the overhead view of the map of Europe has countless mistakes:
    • The island of Great Britain is yellow, but Northern Ireland, which is part of the United Kingdom, is green.
    • Albania, Denmark, Luxembourg, Montenegro, Morocco, Netherlands, Slovenia, and Tunisia are all unlabeled.
    • Montenegro is connected to Albania.
    • The Balearic Islands on Spain's east coast are purple, while the rest of Spain is green.
    • The islands of Corsica (France) and Sardinia (Italy) are yellow, while the two countries that own these islands are light yellow and red, respectively.
    • Kaliningrad (Russia) is connected to Poland.
    • Bosnia and Herzegovina is referred to simply as "Bosnia".
    • Possible: North Macedonia is referred to simply as "Macedonia". However, since Macedonia changed its name to North Macedonia in 2019, the movie might take place before then.
    • Estonia and Russia are of the same adjacent color.
    • Zeeland (Denmark) is associated with Sweden.
    • When the map is close-up on the bus route, the Netherlands is indicated, but Luxembourg is connected to Belgium.
  • During Lincoln's slideshow, in the image of the the sisters finding all the things they like in Scotland, Lori's hands are unaligned with her wrists.
  • When the Loud kids are rowing back to Loch Loud after Lucille reveals to them Morag's treachery, Lynn's arms are layered behind the boat, making her hands appear as if they're levitating, and Luna's rowing appears to be occurring inside the boat.
  • When the Louds were leaving Scotland, Angus is seen wearing an olive-green coat, but when the townspeople leave, Angus is wearing a black coat.
  • Possible: During the song "Ordinary Me," Flip points to a sign that says that singing is not allowed at Flip's Food & Fuel, but he didn't kick the Loud family or the Casagrande family out when they sang "Grateful (Agradecido)" in "The Loudest Thanksgiving". However, it is possible that he grew to dislike singing subsequent to the events of that episode.
  • When the Louds find Lucy conducting a séance, the Duke's room and the entrance to the castle are missing from the wall behind them. Also, the left wall is one wall toward the arc door frame to the left when it should be two walls wide.
  • In the overhead view of the Duke's room, there is a coffee table, a couch, and a statue of the Duke holding a sword. However, in the transition afterward, these pieces of furniture all disappear.
  • In the last two scenes that show Luan, her braces are black instead of white.
  • When Morag returned to the castle and sees Lincoln video chatting with Clyde, she is soaking wet and has mascara running down her eyes. But when she starts to sing, she is dry and the mascara disappears.
  • As Lincoln is singing and he walks by Flip's Food & Fuel, he is walking on the sidewalk. But in the next shot, when a flyer is blown into his face, he is off the sidewalk.
  • During Luna's interaction with Morag, she is holding her bagpipes under her left arm. Then when Morag reveals a painting of the sisters' ancestors showing their talents, the camera angle changes, and Luna is holding the bagpipes under her right arm.
  • During the flashback of the 1600's, when the Duke is telling Lolo the dragon to let him and his family pass, Lolo blows fire, and it is briefly shown that none of the Duke's clothing got burnt. Then after Lucille says that their fate has been decided, it cuts to the Duke, and his scarf is burnt.
  • At the end of the movie, as the citizens are fixing up the town, Angus is seen wearing the Duke's crown. But when he approaches Lela the dragon, who came with the big bell, he is wearing a hard hat. But in the next shot, he's wearing the crown again.
  • When Lucy is telling Rita that she has the Junior Morticians' Death Match, there is a burrito to her right. Then as the other sisters are rambling about their activities, the burrito next to Lucy disappears.
  • Plot hole: After the family arrived in Scotland, Lori tries video chatting with Bobby. But the video chat ends up glitching from poor connection due to Lori being far from where Bobby is. But later on, Lincoln is video chatting with Clyde, and the video chat never glitches at any point.
  • Lana disappears during the battle scene and she doesn't appear again until Lincoln, Lela and Morag crashed landed.
  • When the Louds cheer Lynn on for winning her game, Leni can be seen with blue eyeshadow, despite the fact that she does not wear eyeshadow at all.
  • In the opening, Luna is seen wearing her rock clothes even as a toddler despite her not getting into rock until she was in seventh grade.
