hey arnold the jungle movie

A lot of the characters have had their looks updated, and frankly speaking, the new fashions are pretty solid. To be completely honest, they do hit that 90s throwback style in just the right way. Take, for example, Arnold’s new jacket, sweater, and flannel combo. You might remember there plenty of folks who argued about whether Arnold was wearing actually wearing a flannel shirt, a kilt, or a skirt. (Or, maybe that was just me and my friends. Hmm.) Now, though, he’s definitely wearing a flannel shirt. Neat, huh?

Helga’s look seems to have not changed a whole lot, which I think totally works for her. Check out that strong unibrow action, too. Iconic!

Hey Arnold: The Jungle Movie does more than just update the cast’s clothes, too.
