The one-off movie will "follow three siblings who break away from a lackluster temple tour in a jungle, finding themselves immersed in a real-life mission comprised of obstacles that they must complete in order to escape alive." Yes, Olmec will be there. Yes, the characters will walk "The Steps of Knowledge." Yes, there will cameos by green monkeys and blue barracudas. Yes, it'll be designed for kids but you'll tune in because you are weak to the powers of your own childhood. Nick is counting on it.
The revival is part of Nick's remake-palooza, which includes the recent launch of the all-'90s show network The Splat, a pair of Hey Arnold! TV specials, an Avengers-style movie that will team every Nicktoon character up for one epic showdown (yes, really). And like these projects, Legends of the Hidden Temple will bridge the '90s and 2010s generation gap through casting. Isabela Moner, current Nick sitcom star and inevitable earworm generator, will lead the Mayan adventure. The role will require serious research on Moner's part; the actress was born in 2001, six years after the game show ended its run.
