Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by charlietheowl, May 30, 2012.
Or magic. And magic is everywhere, even in you.
Gonna take a whole Harry Potter load of magic, if you ask me.
Seriously. Make it happen this time!
I can't believe I'm saying this, but lets destroy this mopey Boober attitude! I don't care if it's a box office bomb,I just want it to happen! Argh! ''goes into triple S's private fraggle cave to think things over''
I do know a few secret development type things that make me more hopeful about the fate of the Fraggles though, so like Skeet says above, lets get rid of the mopeyness! 2014 will be big!
Considering the Doozer cartoon actually happened, I'm far more optimistic that this could very well happen, I guess.
I mean, sure, Doozers is going to be on Hulu (probably plus) instead of a network like it should (Really PBS? You chose to keep running "Cailou's Temper Tantrum Theater" instead?), but it happened. If it gets the right audience, then we can very well get some movie traction from it. Though I;m baffled why The Hub didn't pick it up, with Hasbro working on a toy line.
Nah. This year will never be big......... IT WILL BE GINORMOUS!!!!! That is,if we actually get to see the movie this year... ''thinks about the chances,then goes back to private fraggle cave to think some more''
I'll believe that when I see it.
So, show me something! Make this Fraggle fan happy!
Some things may occur in the latter half of the year. And I'm not getting more specific then that! But I'm lovin' the fraggles and it would blow my mind and make me so happy if a movie comes out!
I know they're owned by different companies now, but I can't help but hope that the buzz from Muppets Most Wanted (and the astounding roll-out of Muppet appearances in the run-up the film's release) will help the Fraggles.
Even taking Disney's deep pockets into account, I get the sense that there's an overall wave of "Muppet love" happening that could boost a Fraggle film, especially if someone of Reitman's calibre is even rumoured to be attached to it.
If you're not going to be more specific "then" that, then when will you be more specific?
Methinks you meant to say "more specific "than" that" instead.
BTW: Where's RedPiggy to speculate on the possibility that Cotterpin got promoted to Chief Doozer of Doozer Creek, and has two children Doozers named "Spike" and Daisywheel?
at fannish theories.
Bah! You caught me!
I was keeping an eye on the "Ask Me anything" post on Reddit where Brian Henson was taking questions. Check out this question and his answer:
Seems like more confirmation? Still, they're being pretty tight-lipped about it!
But actually, there were quite a lot of people asking whats happening with Fraggle rock and a movie. So.. maybe at the very least Brian is having to wade through a lot of Fraggle-related questions, which will confirm there's still interest in those characters!
That comment could be taken to mean anything from "We're filming it as we speak!" to "We're looking into hiring a focus group to determine whether anyone still remembers what Fraggles are." Seriously, Brian ain't gonna shoot the franchise in the foot and say "We gave up on that and are focusing our energies on things which actually stand more than a snowball's chance in Hades." If he has nothing better to say he'll just come out with something vague.
Yeah, I'm cynical. If I turn out to be wrong I'll very happily eat my words.
The only people I know who actually enjoy eating their own words are the members of King Azaz's court.
Me rather eat cookies instead.
Or radish bars.
Or a toasted crunchy peanut butter sandwich with plenty of pickles in it. What. I like peanut butter and pickles.
Wow, I thought I was the only one who liked that, and don't forget the jalapeños.
Ugh, the food you guys eat.
Finally, That's exciting news. I did not know there were going to make a movie
Uh Casper, you might want to read the entire thread before jumping for joy. This thing has been such a production development nightmare that everyone here just rolls their eyes when talk of an FR movie starts up again.
oops, effectively, I've jumped in it too fast. Usually, when it's nightmarish, either it will never be made or it will but with bad script.
I'm still hopeful, only cause I know something truly incredible can be done! But maybe it's just me!
I hate to pooh-pooh this, as in theory it sounds like such a fabulous idea, but.........I really kind of want them to leave it alone.
I'll still go see it, if it happens. Obviously. But then I'm pretty sure I'll go home and cry in my soup. It ain't broke. Don't fix it.
