NICKELODEON'S ORIGINAL TV MOVIE EVENT, "LEGENDS OF THE HIDDEN TEMPLE," BOWS SATURDAY, NOV. 26, AT 8 P.M. (ET/PT)
NEW YORK--Oct. 6, 2016 - 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. (ET/PT). Isabela Moner (Transformers 5), Colin Critchley and Jet Jurgensmeyer join original TV show host, Kirk Fogg, and voice of Olmec, Dee Bradley Baker, in the 90-minute action-adventure movie, which tells the story of three siblings who embark on a high-stakes, life-or-death mission.
The Legends of the Hidden Temple TV movie follows 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.
Fans can visit the Legends of the Hidden Temple page on nick.com/temple and the Nick App to access 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.
