The Future of This Blog

Today marks the end of another year and I thought it would be a good time to talk about what I plan to do with this blog going forward. No, I'm not planning on closing it, but there may be changes heading into the new year.

Hey Arnold! The Jungle Movie

I remember watching a little Hey Arnold! when I was a kid, but I don't think it was a whole lot. I don't think I saw The Journal when I was younger, so I wasn't aware the show ended on a cliffhanger until a few years ago. It was originally going to have a feature film (the one it did get was initially made for TV), but it got cancelled. I ended up getting more into the show thanks to NickSplat.

Even then, I didn't think it would happen because Hey Arnold! hadn't been relevant for years and kids today probably wouldn't know about it. Shortly after though, I heard that Craig Bartlett had been in talks with Nick to bring Hey Arnold! back. Then later in the year, Nick announced that they were looking into reviving old shows and that Hey Arnold! was one of them. Then a couple months later, Nick announced that a Hey Arnold! TV movie was in development and it was later announced to be The Jungle Movie. What once seemed impossible finally happened.
