Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie: Original Cast Will Return, Nickelodeon Confirms

Prepare for the biggest Hey Arnold!-related news since Stoop Kid left his stoop.

Nickelodeon on Monday confirmed the title of Football Head’s next made-for-TV adventure, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, and revealed that many of the series’ original voices will return.

Returning voices include Francesca Marie Smith (The Prince of Egypt) as Helga, Anndi McAfee (Tom and Jerry: The Movie) as Phoebe, Justin Shenkarow (Recess) as Harold, Olivia Hack (Family Guy) as Rhonda, Nika Futterman (The Boxtrolls) as Olga, Dan Castellaneta (The Simpsons) as Grandpa and Tress MacNeille (The Simpsons) as Grandma.

Lane Toran, the original voice of Arnold, and Jamil Smith, the original voice of Gerald, will also return to voice supplemental characters; in The Jungle Movie, Mason Vale Cotton (Mad Men) will voice Arnold, while Benjamin Flores, Jr. (Game Shakers) will voice Gerald.

Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, premiering in 2017, picks up where the TV series left off in 2004. All unanswered questions, including the whereabouts of Arnold’s parents, will be addressed.

    There’s probably not gonna be an Oskar appearance due to Steve Viksten’s death. If there is, it’s silent. I wonder if Lane Toran (Caudell)’s supplemental character is Wolfgang, the bully character created for him when he stopped being Arnold. What about Ben Diskin and Blake McIver (voices of Eugene), or Phillip van Dyke and Spencer Klein (Arnolds 2 & 3)? Will Kath Soucie and Maurice LaMarche be back as Miriam and Big Bob? What about the other members of the boarding house? Ooooh this is intriguing

    Cool, of all the old lady characters that Tress MacNeille voiced. Grandma Gertie aka ‘Pookie’ was always my favourite.
