It would seem Legends of the Hidden Temple still has a few treasures left in its vault. According to recent reports in Variety, Nickelodeon plans to revive the iconic game show as a TV movie. Children of the 90’s will remember Legends as one of the zany, slime-soaked challenge series Nickelodeon offered alongside favorites like Guts and Double-Dare. However, Legends has built up a nostalgic following thanks to its creative use of trivia, mythology, and a studio that resembled every kid’s dream playhouse.
Each week, teams of two would compete for the opportunity to retrieve an object from the show’s “Hidden Temple”. The movie follows a similar narrative, focusing on “three siblings [who] must conquer a series of obstacles to remain alive”. Let’s just hope they don’t get trapped in the Shrine of the Silver Monkey, no one could assemble that thing.
