    Even though we've been talking about it for more than a year, Henson officially announced they are going forward with a Fraggle Rock film. Find out who is writing the screenplay and more in this exciting announcement.

    Yaeeeeeyyyy!! *Flailing arms about like our froggy leader.

    This is great fantasticabulous news Phil! That means that the three main branches of the Henson family will finally be represented with theatrical releases. Oh, I can hardly wait! This'll be a must see, probably the first Henson Muppet movie I'll actually have seen at the movies.
    Man, I rully hope everybody's in on this: Jerry, Steve, Karen, Kathy, and Dave... And Doc as well of course.
    Oh, spread the Fragglish excitement!

    Man, I can't wait. One concern... does anyone know if Gerry Parks is still alive? it wouldn't be a Fraggle movie without Doc, or Sprocket.

    Oh MY God! :excited:

    This is great news, I think I mcuh rather hear of this than a new Muppet Movie. I've always loved the Fraggles and thought it was a shame they were only ever used for the TV Show unlike Sesame Street & The Muppets. And finally we'll get to see something new involving MOKEY (hopefully)

    This is the part I love about this movie:
    Ahment Zappa is writing it.
    One of Frank Zappa's sons.
    That in itself makes this movie something to see!

    I saw the last name of the director and I was like, "Ahment Zappa? Frank Zappa? Is it a common name German name?"

    *bounces* Oh this is SOOOOO exciting!! The Fraggles are finally coming to the big screen! Oh how happy!! I'm gonna have to see it like eight times!! *bounces bounces bounces* Oh this is so great!!! I really hope we see Doc (and yes, Gerry Parks is still alive) and maybe even Cantus. Ooh, I wonder if Junior Gorg will get a new performer, or if maybe we just won't see him. I don't see how that can be though, he was a core part of the show. But still! FRAGGLE MOVIE!!! *dances cares away*

    My first immediate thoughts too. I really hope Jerry is feeling well enough to do this. Now that would be a great note to retire on!

    IMDB lists that he hasn't done anything since 2004, but that's about it. I wonder when we'll see a complete cast list? :excited:

    Wow! I heard this was coming, but didn't expect an official notice for at least another year! I'm eagerly awaiting any new developments!

    And I desperatly hope that all the original voices will be back, and that we don't get corny cameo's of famous silly-people...
