To celebrate the upcoming premiere Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie, Nickelodeon Animation has shared some fantastic background art from the networks brand-new Hey Arnold! TV movie in a post on their official Tumblr page, which you can check out below!:
“We thought the show was good, but it didn’t seem any more or less remarkable than any the other shows being made. So to see it have such great staying power, and to see the fans that were Arnold’s age when the show was new grow up and become artists and animators and write really eloquently about it, is astounding.” -Hey Arnold! creator Craig Bartlett.
We’re just 10 days away from the Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie premiere! In the meantime, here’s a peek at some of the background art from the film!
Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie takes the kids on the field trip of a lifetime: action packed and full of adventure! They’ll join Arnold on a quest in which he’ll try to achieve his ultimate dream and finally find his missing parents. It all starts when Arnold and his classmates take a trip to San Lorenzo, South America, which, coincidentally, is the last place Arnold’s parents were seen! Their trip takes a turn when pirates kidnap Arnold and his friends! From there it’s one jungle hazard after another, and the gang must put their heads together to get out of danger. As the leader of the journey, Arnold must make sure he and his friends survive safely, all while working towards a reunion he’s dreamt of his whole life!
The two-hour TV movie features a storyline that picks up from where the original series ended in the "The Journal" in 2004 and resolves unanswered questions and plotlines-including Arnold finally getting answers about the whereabouts of his missing parents, Arnold's last name, and how Arnold feels about Helga! The movie is co-written and executive produced by the series’ original creator Craig Bartlett and produced by Nickelodeon in Burbank, Calif.
