Conventions are both fantastic fan experiences. But also a great time to here updates on series and project and even news of new things that are coming our way. Back this summer at Comic-Con International in San Diego, California. Nickelodeon finally debuted a trailer of the new live-action film “Legends of the Hidden Temple.”
Fans at the con, the Internet and even us here at BSCKids where going nuts for the news. Even in last few months, the hype hasn’t lessened much, or if any. Mostly because we still didn’t have a premiere date despite knowing the plot and the cast. However, that has all changed!
Get ready and mark your calendars and DVRs for Saturday, November 26th at 8 for the tale of the temple to unfold!
Here is what we know so far, according to a press released from Nickelodeon earlier this month. The cast will include Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley and Jet Jurgensmeyer alongside original TV show host, Kirk Fogg, and voice of Olmec, Dee Bradley Baker, in the 90-minute action-adventure movie.
Legends of the Hidden Temple will follow three siblings, Sadie (Moner), Noah (Critchley), and Dudley (Jurgensmeyer), 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 stone head who greets anyone who dares to enter 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.
According to the press release, Nickelodeon has also set up a exclusive webpage, nick.com/temple, and unique section on their app for viewers and fans to get access to exclusive content from the movie, including photo galleries, bloopers, sneak peeks, Do Not Touch Buttons featuring King Olmec, and behind-the-scenes photos and videos of the cast.
Nickelodeon will premiere the highly anticipated Legends of the Hidden Temple original TV movie, inspired by the network’s iconic ‘90s game show of the same name, on Saturday, Nov. 26 at 8 p.m.

And to add to the excitement. There is a newly updated trailer. Check it out.
Like I had said back when I first wrote about this in July, I am excited for this. Though at first it seemed somewhat jarring to turn a game show into a film with a strong plot. Going off what we see here now it looks like they accomplished that and more.
I am a bit surprised at the release date of November 26th, but not in a bad way. Thanksgiving is not only a great time for family, but it also really sets the tone for the holiday season. And having Nick kick it off with something that can easily become a family affair is great.
Now the countdown begins!
