First look: 'Hey Arnold!' movie's characters just got revealed at Comic-Con
Continuing its delicious annual tradition of delivering all kinds of entertainment-related goodies, Comic-Con has blessed us with yet another fist pump-worthy movie update in the form of the first stills from Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie. Can we get a woo to the hoo? Fresh from the convention’s Nickelodeon panel “Happy! Happy! Joy! Joy!: 25 Years of Nickelodeon Original Animation,” our first peek at the film’s beloved characters includes shots of Arnold, Helga (looking angry as ever), Phoebe, Gerald, Grandpa and Abner all posing in a lineup.
No clue exactly why the gang looks like they landed on the wrong side of the law, but we’re already tempted to blame it on Helga (just sayin’).
In the meantime, let’s get into these new cast photos, starting with Arnold. He appears to have stepped up his fashion game by unbuttoning his signature flannel. We definitely learned some life lessons from Hey Arnold! but let’s face it: how to dress fashionably wasn’t exactly one of them.
Aw, seeing the cast look mature is sweet and all, but damn this makes us feel old. Good thing we have plenty of time to pull ourselves together before the Hey Arnold sequel premieres on Thanksgiving 2017.
