One of my favorite shows growing up was Legends of the Hidden Temple. I would spend my time playing along with the contestants (Blue Barracuda, for life!), screaming the answers on the Steps of Knowledge, jumping every time a Temple Guard jumped out and getting frustrated whenever no one could figure out how to put together the Silver Monkey statue.
Now, later this month, Nickelodeon is set to air a tv movie based all around the hit 90s tv show. Set to air on the 26th, the movie is about three siblings who sneak away from a boring jungle temple tour and find themselves facing a series of obstacles that they'll have to work together in order to survive.
The tv movie will, of course, have nods to the original show; it'll have the Temple Guards (although, probably way scarier looking than in the show), all of the team animals make a cameo, and you can't have a movie based on the show without Olmec and Kirk Fogg.
I must admit, I'm loving all the resurgence of old Nick tv shows. First, they started a block on Teen Nick at Nite of shows like Hey Arnold (which there's talk of a movie, too) All That and Keenan and Kel, and now this. I'd like to think I had a part in that since my friends and I wrote a letter to Nick once after an all nighter demanding they bring back all the good stuff. So, you know, you're welcome everyone.
If you were a fan of the show when you were young, or just want a fun adventure-type movie, definitely check it out on November 26th.
