Ever since the extraordinary Nickelodeon announced that they are bringing out a movie based on their highly-acclaimed, iconic 90’s show, Legends of the Hidden Temple, we all couldn’t be any more excited! Well now, Nickelodeon continues to make our excitement reach a different level with all of their new announcements regarding the movie. Nickelodeon has just revealed that the original voice of Olmec will be returning in the “Legends of the Hidden Temple” movie. Such spectacular news!
Dee Bradley Baker, who voiced the role of Olmec on the show, has officially joined the cast of the movie including Kirk Fogg (who was also a part of the game-show series), Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley and Jet Jurgensmeyer. Baker shared his excitement about joining the cast and stated, “An entire generation grew up loving Legends of the Hidden Temple. It was my first television series, and it remains one of the most popular projects I’ve ever been lucky enough to have been involved with throughout my career. I’m thrilled that Kirk Fogg and I can once again man the temple as Nickelodeon brings it back in a fresh new way. This rock is once again ready to roll!”
“Baker was cast as the voice of Olmec in Nickelodeon’s Legends of the Hidden Temple in 1993, completing 120 episodes of the award-winning series. Since Legends of the Hidden Temple, Baker has voiced major roles including animated series American Dad!, SpongeBob SquarePants, Gravity Falls, Phineas and Ferb, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and The 7D, live-action series such as Shop ’til You Drop, films such as The Boxtrolls and video games such as Halo, Gears of War, Viewtiful Joe, and Spore.” (source: press release)
“Legends of the Hidden Temple” is set to premiere in the fall and we are all counting down the days until we can see this action-packed, adventure filled movie on our TV screens. “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 many elements from the original game show including: Olmec, a talking head who greets cast members Noah, Sadie and Dudley, and launches them on the adventure of a lifetime; The Steps of Knowledge, the entrance to the temple and launching pad for the mission; and appearances from a green monkey, red jaguar, and silver snakes, among others.” (source: press release)
We are thrilled that Dee Bradley Baker has joined the cast of the “Legends of the Hidden Temple” movie. All of the incredibly talented and exceptional cast-members together make this a sensational movie that will be just as iconic as the game-show was!
