Many of us are excited for the upcoming Hey Arnold! movie, which will finally put closure to the cliffhanger at the series finale. It’s been 13 years since Arnold discovered his parents’ journal and we still want answers! Thankfully, it will be addressed in Hey Arnold! the Jungle Movie, and Nickelodeon just released its first trailer.
Watch the trailer below:
The entire cast of the series will return, and we’ll see Arnold and his best friend Gerald, as well as Helga, Phoebe, Harold, Rhonda, Olga, Grandpa and Grandma, Eugene, Stinky, and Sid. There is no news whether the boarders of the Sunset Arms will return, too. The actors who voiced the characters will return to the series, including Lane Toran and Jamil Smith, who voiced Arnold and Gerald respectively. However, Toran and Smith will voice new characters.
Hey Arnold! was one of Nickelodeon’s most celebrated cartoons, and often featured adult undertones, like parental abandonment, extended family ties, being a misfit, urbanization encroaching on community spaces, unrequited love, and a suspected suicide in one episode (Pigeon Man).
Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie will be written and executive produced by the series’ original creator Craig Bartlett.
