    You know what's really weird about this? I JUST got done watching "Honk Of Honks" and "Change Of Address." I don't know why, I just felt like watching them. Then, as soon as the ending gets over with, I hopped over here to see what's new, and of all things, this shows up. I can't tell you how excited I am for this, and I hope the original five are in this, as well, and that they don't mess this up like other projects.

    This is Fraggle Rock... no one should "get together." They're all friends, and I hope they keep it like that.

    That is AMAZING! Wow! How COOl would that be! The only downside: If it's a theatrical release I'll be in a theatre with a bunch of little kids. :D But I can put up with that cause if this goes through, that would be SO cool.

    Fantastic news! It all feels like one huge revival of my childhood, and I can't be more happy about it. :)

    Go to like an 10:30pm screening on a Tuesday night - not many kids come out to that showing. Or go to a 1:30pm screening on a Wednesday. I found that if you want to see a "kids" movie kid-free go during the day on a weekday (they're all in school/preschool, their parents are working, or they are taking a nap); or go late at night (after their bedtime). Never go to a kids movie on a Saturday, Sunday, or Friday evening - its all kids! Most theaters show the "kids" movies at some times when there arn't many kids around. I see almost all "kids" films at 10-11 o'clock at night - it's just easier that way (and I can hear what Shrek is saying ;) )

    Henson said in one new report, that the project will find the Fraggles having to come out into “outer space” (a.k.a. the human world). The group will have a wild adventure as they find themselves in this weird and wild new world, far away from Fraggle Rock. Henson has also stressed that the story will be aimed at both children and young adults (as they hope to appeal to new young fans, and also the fans that grew up on the show). They also stated that the original Fraggle characters are planned to be the stars of the film (however this could change). The early work on developing the project is underway within the Henson Company and they hope to start shooting sometime next year (2006).

    Oh, really, that's a possibility? I like the idea. :D

    As for the going to the movie at night, I think I'll have to end up doing that. ;) Thanks because that was a good suggestion. I would want to go to the movie and be able to fully enjoy it!

    Wow! I can't believe theyr'e doing this! I feel like I'm dreaming. April Fools Day isn't for another 6 months so I know this is NOT a joke. I am so excited a Fraggle Movie is going to be made. It's about time they did something like this. Just one question. Since Richard Hunt is no longer with us, who will perform Junior Gorg? Any ideas???

    Jerry Nelson has retired from doing The Muppets. He still does Sesame Street, and given the amount of passion the cast has for the show, I would think he would want to do the fim. He still does puppeteering, but the large work load the Disney was looking at for the Muppets caused him to decide to step back sooner (rather than be forced to later). He would still do this film; and even if he didn't puppeteer, which I'm sure he would, he could still loop the lines. Jerry Nelson could still play Gobo.

    Steve (Wembly), and Dave (Boober/Uncle Matt) are still very active puppeteers and I think getting them would be no problem. Karen (Red) is also very excited to do anythign Fraggle related and I'm sure she would jump at the chance to play Red again. Kathy (Mokey) is off doing other puppeteering and producing projects last I heard, but I'm sure that for a film like this they would be able to get her for the film if they tried.

    I don't know if Doc will be in the film. Gerry Parks is still around but given the Doc storyline on the show, the international co-production diffrent character, and the fact that he's older now, I don't know if his character will be in the film. The Gorgs are also tricky. Richard (Junior Gorg) passed away, so if the Gorgs are in the film his character would need replacement. Same with Grunge.

    Given the story line of the Fraggles leaving Fraggle Rock and going into outter space, I don't know how much the Gorgs, Trashheap, Philo/Grunge, and Doozers will be shown. At this point no cast has been announced. But I'm sure that if they try hard enough they can get all 5 Fraggle performers back together for the film. Still we'll have to wait for the official announcement to know for sure.

    I am SOOOO excited, like for updates and pictures and stuff! Its SOOOOOOO Awsome! I hope its like the Fraggle have to go to the Trasheap when they find out they have to go to Outer Space, than at least we can get her and Philo and Gunge and Madam Heap, and of corse we could get the Gorgs as they have to cross the Gorgs Garden. I hope we can get as many Fraggle Characters as possable when they are in Fraggle Rock, and I hope they have the Music!!! :excited:

    This could be great. I want to be optimistic. But I just can't help but think that "appealing to a young adult audince" might mean references to pornography and jokes about the Muppets' sexual activity that seem to be all the rage with the Muppets in recent years. I would hope they wouldn't sink that low with the Fraggles, but then, I never thought it would happen with the Muppets either.
