The Castlevania video game series has long been rumored for one adaptation of another, so might an animated series finally be getting off the ground? That’s the rumor du jour, as reports suggest Adventure Time executive producer Fred Seibert is gearing up to announce a new take on the vampire property.
Nickelodeon’s Legends of Korra finally brought its past full-circle with the announcement of a Complete Series Blu-ray, but what of the future? See for yourself, as the first photos and details of the post-Korrasami sequel comic Turf Wars have arrived from Dark Horse Comics!
It was over a year ago that we first learned The Legend of Korra would get a full series release on Blu-ray, but only now have the details finally bent into shape. You’ll be able to catch Korra’s adventures before 2016 is out, so check out the first of special features and cover art!
25 years ago this week, animated television was forever changed. That may sound hyperbolic, but when Nickelodeon debuted the network’s first block of original programming in the summer of 1991, it was one of the most game-changing things animated television had ever seen.
Rugrats was one of the most iconic animated shows of the ’90s. The second ever Nicktoon, the cartoon debuted on Nickelodeon 25 years ago this week. Yup, the Rugrats are officially a quarter of a century old.
Fans of Nickelodeon’s Legends of the Hidden Temple were briefly excited, then admittedly curious at news that the beloved game show would return (in the form of a TV movie), and they’ll at least have some familiar faces. Original host Kirk Fogg will return for the new scripted iteration as well, paying homage to his time as a Legends of the Hidden Temple guide.
Everything old is new again, and if you count yourself among the camp waiting for Nickelodeon to finally get around to returning Legends of the Hidden Temple, you’re in luck. The famed Nickelodeon game show inspired by the Indiana Jones movies will indeed return, albeit as a movie, rather than the game itself.
Last year Nickelodeon announced plans to revive several of our favorite ’90s shows, starting with a special block of programming called “The Splat.” But that’s not all the network has been cooking up for nostalgic fans — they’ve also been developing a new film that will bring many of our favorite ’90s cartoon characters together on the big screen for one big, animated adventure, and the company has found the right creative team to tackle the ambitious project.
Damn near everything popular between 1985 and 1999 has been rebooted, reimagined, reworked, or remade in the studios’ relentless efforts to wring every last drop of earning potential from existing creative properties. Some efforts have been more successful than others, but either way, Nickelodeon has moved to throw their own hat into the ring.
If you’re anything like us, you’ve watched each and every episode of AMC’s Mad Men with a nagging suspicion: Wouldn’t Jon Hamm’s Don Draper be better served as an animated underwater ad man on SpongeBob Squarepants? Wonder no longer, friends. Nickelodeon has answered the call.
