    hello, i found this site with this picture:
    is it an older photo of the fraggle five or the new building puppets for the movie?
    i`m wondered about wembleys hair, because the hair of the older wembley is yellow and at the picture his hair is, yellow, orange,brown. the new sababa wembley looks like this newer wembley.
    what do you think?

    They're not puppets from what I can tell they're the posers they use in photo shoots.
    They still look nice though...

    Yeah, those are photo puppets. And, if I remember right, Wembley's hair did have all those different colors in it. :coy:

    It is a picture I haven't seen before, though. It's possible that they rebuilt the posers.

    Yeah. It's the lighting of the room that makes Wem's hair that dark hue, because his hair is a fair few shades lighter in the series.

    It is an old Time/Life photograph that goes back to 1st jan, 1983.
    The full photo shows jim Henson posing with them, just to the right of the picture.

    Other than the fact this guy's as funny as a stomache virus, the Fraggle Film was in preprepreproduction before Jason Segel even went to JHC to find out Disney owns them... let alone working on the film.

    Hopefully, the film is done right, for I don't want the Fraggle message and the character relationships to be cast aside for an attempt at being "hip".

    Which seems to be the way movies are going lately:sympathy:...

    Indeed. And I don't want the Fraggle film to end up another Underdog or what have you.

    Even if it was nothing like the original show & ****** off both fans and one of the creators (Joe Harris).

    *twich,twich* Make the bad rockman go away:eek:...
    I loved him in the first one to *hugs the rockbiter* but it just goes to show how a bad movie can take something wonderful and make it the worst part of a film :(. I hope they don't do something like that to Sprocket...I will cry ;.;

    Another question that is to be posed is when the film would take place, for if it is before the Fraggles met Doc, it wouldn't work, because not of the Fraggles--even "Travelling" Matt--didn't venture into our world until the start of the series & it wouldn't work if Doc wasn't present (and played by Parks [who may not be with us anymore]), because without Doc, Sprocket has no reason to appear, as Doc is Sprocket's master. I mean, it'd be weird seeing Sprocket without Doc beside him, would it not?

    He's alive :). But they might give Sprocket a teenage owner and act like Doc was never around..which be weird, because that is like acting like the series didn't happen or it happened differently...ack, which would mean they might act like Uncle Matt just started exploring Outter Space and all the group is interested in is going after him and...No no no, my writers mind just filled in the blanks and it would be nothing good at all..But I can see a writer who says they are staying true to the series writing something like that and then saying 'gee, it's great, it has all the characters and settings in it see? How could you not like it!"

    Foo :p. I think my Midnight Place would even make a better movie :p
