Legends of the Hidden Temple Reboot
« on: January 29, 2019, 02:23:12 PM »
Since we've already got a movie and a board game, I was wondering what the odds are on Legends getting an actual reboot. Of course, it'll be played the same way as the original, but I thought it could also include elements from the movie (ex: Ioan Sebastian Tirlui reprising his role as Zuma and hosting with Kirk Fogg). Maybe also in the reboot, the set will look more Mayan.

So, should Legends actually be rebooted? There's a poll above and a link to my petition in my signature (if you vote yes).

I’m gonna have to say neutral on this because of the high expectations it would have. While a few of nick’s game shows did get rebooted, here were the results.


Double Dare 2000: Very bad. At least kept the obstacle course and most of the format the same. No Marc Summers ruins it. 


My Family Got Guts: The worst remake of all. Used an abondoned studio. Had a two team format except for two episodes. The Crag was different. Tried to combine Guts with Double Dare.  Not memorable at all. Mike and Moira were never on.


Figure It Out: Actually they did this remake pretty well. While it was not as good as the 90’s version, it was still enjoyable and stayed true to most of its origins. Plus slime insanity, and a bonus for contestants getting slimed if a key word from the It Board (which replaced Billy the head). Jeff Sutphen did alright as host, but the panelists did drag the show down. Come to think of it, I don’t think a single panelist was a panlist in the 90s.


Double Dare: Too early to tell, but at least they got Marc Summers involved.


After that I might lean toward no, but I wouldn’t mind seeing it come back if they stay true to most of the shows roots and don’t stray away from it.

I hate to say it, but I don't think that petition is going to do anything. It only has 100+ signatures. No way is that going to get Legends rebooted.

As for the topic/poll question, I'm on the fence about this. On one hand, I would love to see new episodes of Legends. I want to see what it would look like. On the other hand, I'm scared to death that the people who would be in charge would butcher it badly. I don't want to see one of my favorite shows from my childhood get ruined. This is tough. I'm probably leaning towards no here.

Well I was thinking it could play out just like the original, but with some elements from the movie (such as Zuma returning to host with Kirk Fogg). Also, the new set should look more Mayan-themed and the insides of the temple would make future contestants feel they're running through an actual Mayan temple. Remember the movie? The inside of the temple looked more like what we'd see inside an actual Mayan temple.

Hopefully that won't ruin Legends for you. I personally expect the reboot (if it ever happens) to appeal to both today's kids and the many adults who watched it during their childhood in the 90s or 2000s, but I'll give you time to make up your mind.

I just posted on BuzzFeed about the reboot I'm trying to make happen. Here it is.

Here are ten ideas I had for the reboot that I'm trying to make happen:

A. CGI transitions of the team animals when each team is called

B. Statues of each team animal scattered across the set
  • Red Jaguar: One one side of the Steps of Knowledge
  • Blue Barracuda: In the Moat
  • Green Monkey: In one of the decorative trees
  • Orange Iguana: Hiding in one of the decorative plants
  • Purple Parrot: Dangling from the ceiling
  • Silver Snake: Coiled around the Silver Snakes' moat torch

C. Team symbols on the gong glasses

D. All six team animal sounds playing in the intro before Olmec is revealed and says "Legends of the Hidden Temple!"
  • Red Jaguar: Roaring
  • Blue Barracuda: Bubble sounds
  • Green Monkey: Monkey call
  • Orange Iguana: Wheezing
  • Purple Parrot: Squawking
  • Silver Snake: Hissing

E. A Temple Game floor mural with the Pendant of Life surrounded by the six team symbols

F. Mayan glyphs on the temple room walls
  • To make future contestants feel like they're running through an actual Mayan temple.

G. Ioan Sebastian Tirlui reprising his role as Zuma and hosting alongside Kirk Fogg and Olmec
  • To add elements from the movie.

H. New title card animations after Olmec says "With your guide, Kirk Fogg!"
  • Original Season 1: Fading
  • Original Season 2: Sliding down
  • Original Season 3: Shattering

I. Teams winning prize cash with their Temple Run prizes (each player will get half the total cash won)
  • I haven't seen any episodes of the Double Dare reboot we got last year, but I imagine contestants are playing for cash.

J. On-screen displays shown during the moat crossing, Steps of Knowledge, Temple Games, and tiebreaker
  • Moat: Each team that successfully made it across
  • Steps of Knowledge/Tiebreaker: Question and answers
  • Temple Games: Contestants' names and hobbies, item count, distance, and pendants won

I want to know which of these you favor most and which you favor least. You'll do that by ranking each letter (10: Favor most, 1: Favor least). I know TDE didn't favor my idea of the Zuma character from the movie being featured in the reboot.

By the looks of these ideas, I pretty much like all ten. Can't think of any unfavorable ideas. And yes Alec, I'll even sign your petition when I get a chance.

Yesterday I drew a map of what the set could look like in the reboot that I'm trying to make happen.




The colored "S#" dots represent the locations of each team animal statue.
