Throwback Thursday? More like throwback everyday! The outstanding and extraordinary Nickelodeon is known for creating content that are masterpieces, whether it was in the 90’s with iconic shows like Hey Arnold!, Keenan & Kel, All That and more to its phenomenal shows we all love and enjoy watching on our TV screens now! Well, Nickelodeon has been bringing together new audiences and the generations who grew up watching these shows with various excitement from The Splat to their incredible announcement today, March 1, 2016!
Nickelodeon just announced that the Legends of the Hidden Temple live-action TV movie has been given the greenlight! (Woohoo!) The incredible movie, which is based on the 90’s game show, will star the phenomenal, remarkable and sensational Nickelodeon veteran, Miss. Isabela Moner of Nickelodeon’s 100 Things To Do Before High School. Legends of the Hidden Temple will start production in March.
According to the press release, “The TV movie Legends of the Hidden Temple will follow three siblings who break away from a lackluster temple tour in a jungle, finding themselves immersed in a real-life mission comprised of obstacles that they must complete in order to escape alive. The TV movie will feature elements from the original game show including: Olmec, a talking head who knows the secrets behind the temple; The Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and cameos from a green monkey, red jaguar, and silver snakes, among others. Legends of the Hidden Temple is executive produced by Scott McAboy and Jessica Rhoades, and produced by Amy Sydorick. The TV movie is directed by Joe Menendez (From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series) and written by Jonny Umansky & Zach Hyatt, and Alex Reid.”
In addition to that marvelous excitement, Nickelodeon has everyone jumping with joy as a two-part Hey Arnold! movie has also been given the greenlight. The movie “… will pick up where the original series ended, resolving unanswered questions and plotlines, including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents” (source: press release). The two-hour long TV movies are set to premiere in 2017.
Cyma Zarghami, President, Viacom Kids and Family Group stated, “The greenlights for the Legends of the Hidden Temple and Hey Arnold! TV movies are terrific examples of how we are bringing our beloved content back to life both for new audiences and the generation that grew up on them.
