Nickelodeon will resurrect its 1990s animated series Hey Arnold! with a new original movie premiering Nov. 24.

The movie, Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie, picks up where the original TV series ended in 2004, with Arnold and his friends embarking on a quest to achieve his dream of finding his missing parents, said Nickelodeon officials.

The Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie is co-written and executive produced by the TV series’ original creator Craig Bartlett, and features original voice cast members Francesca Marie Smith (The Prince of Egypt) as Helga and Anndi McAfee (Tom and Jerry: The Movie) as Phoebe, alongside new voice talent Mason Vale Cotton (Mad Men) as Arnold and Benjamin “Lil’ P-Nut” Flores, Jr. (Game Shakers) as Gerald. Lane Toran (original voice of Arnold) and Jamil Walker Smith (original voice of Gerald) will supplement the returning cast by lending their voices as Che and Paulo, two members of the boat crew in San Lorenzo, said the network.
