At last '90s kids, the Hey Arnold! movie trailer has arrived! And it looks pretty exciting, guys.

The extended teaser, released by Buzzfeed at New York Comic-Con, recaptures the fun and mystery that we loved about the original as Arnold travels to the island San Lorenzo in search of his lost parents.

Along the way, he teams up with best pal Gerald and quite literally bumps heads with Helga, reigniting the greatest love story in the history of cartoons.

You'll probably notice that the kids are voiced by new actors, but that's to be expected. After all, original Arnold voice actor Lane Toran is now 34 years old and has a righteous beard.

However, Lane and his original co-star Jamil Walker Smith are involved in Nickelodeon's movie and will provide voices for new characters.

The new Arnold is voiced by Mason Vale Cotton (aka the fourth Bobby Draper on Mad Men), while Happy Feet Two's Benjamin Flores Jr. will play Football Head's best pal Gerald.

However, The Jungle Movie is definitely not a reboot. It's a direct sequel to 2002's Hey Arnold!: The Movie, with original series creator Craig Bartlett co-writing this revival.

The classic Hey Arnold! TV series originally aired on Nickelodeon for 100 episodes from 1996 to 2004, becoming a staple of many a childhood along the way.

Hey Arnold!: The Jungle Movie will be premiering in the US on Black Friday (November 24) on Nickelodeon.
