We’ve all watched the iconic, award-winning Nickelodeon series, Legends of the Hidden Temple, so when the extraordinary Nickelodeon announced the news that there will now be a movie based off of the show, we all couldn’t contain our excitement! After announcing that Nickelodeon veteran, the wonderful Isabela Moner will be starring in the movie along with Jet Jurgensmeyer and Colin Critchley, Nickelodeon also brought out even more amazing news by announcing that the one and only Kirk Fogg has officially joined the cast of the movie as well! Kirk Fogg made the TV series extra special as he served as the show’s host and guide and will play a key role in the upcoming movie that is set to premiere in Fall 2016.
Kirk Fogg shared his excitement about being a part of the “Legends of the Hidden Temple” movie and stated, “When Nickelodeon asked me to be a part of the Legends of the Hidden Temple movie, I immediately went to the closet and pulled out my blue denim shirt, which has been protected by a powerful golden force field since 1995. Legends is truly a legend, and I’m honored to be a part of it again. I’m sure the Ancient Olmec had something to do with this; that rock head is pretty sneaky” (source: press release). Fogg was actually a part of a whopping 120 episodes of the show.
“The Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie follows three siblings who break away from a lackluster tour in a jungle, finding themselves immersed in a high-stakes adventure 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” (source: press release).
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.
