Nickelodeon’s ‘Legends of the Hidden Temple’ Will Return … As a TV Movie
Everything old is new again, and if you count yourself among the camp waiting for Nickelodeon to finally get around to returning Legends of the Hidden Temple, you’re in luck. The famed Nickelodeon game show inspired by the Indiana Jones movies will indeed return, albeit as a movie, rather than the game itself.
According to Variety, Nickelodeon has confirmed among their upcoming slate a Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie, led by 100 Things to Do Before High School star Isabela Monae. Lest you think the movie would change too much of the original game:
In “Hidden Temple,” three siblings must conquer a series of obstacles to remain alive, mirroring the theme of the original game show. The TV movie, slated to appear in the fourth quarter of 2016, will nod to other elements from the original 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.
It isn’t clear exactly when in late 2016 Nickelodeon would air the TV movie (they’ve also eyed a two-part Hey Arnold! movie for 2017), but could a real Legends of the Hidden Temple return before long?
