    I'm really surprised there's nothin' up on IMDB yet, this is the event of the century!

    Really? For us, I suppose, but not for millions of others. Sadly.

    I hope the movie is filmed in Toronto, just like the series was. ;)

    Toronto seems unlikely. Best bet is probably LA.

    Even though we've known something was in the works for a while, I'm SO glad to have official confirmation. Hooray! It will be wonderful to see this series moving forward with new material!

    The more I think about this movie the more excited I get over it. Although I’d like to say I’d love to go to the cinema to see this movie and eat my toffee pop corn as I watch the film on the Big screen I’ll probably end up watching it in the comfort of my own home since I can probably download it before it even arrives to the cinemas here but I’ll buy twenty copies as soon as the movie comes out on DVD :) . Who am I kidding I’ll have to end up going to the cinema to watch this that’s one of the most exciting things about all this to actually have the Fraggle’s come to the big screen, though I’ll have to find some young kids to take because I doubt any of my friends would go with me.

    The only thing I hope is that in this movie we are brought back to the actual Fraggle Rock and not just the Fraggle five, I’ve been reading stuff online that the movie will focus on the Fraggle travelling to Outer Space (The Real World) so although it’s going to be cool seeing the Fraggle’s in the real world like the Muppets (well like the Muppets in their first few films not the later ones) I still hope they can devote some time at the start of the movie and maybe the end of it to the actual Fraggle Rock along with the Doozers and other Fraggle’s. I also hope we get to see the Trash Heap and her two sidekicks and Sprocket is a must. Sprocket must be in this movie! Although I do understand if we get no Gorgs in the movie seeing as they’d have to probably rebuilt those complicated Gorgs for a few scenes unless Junior decides to dig a hole through Fraggle Rock and squeeze himself out through the Fraggle Hole that leads to Doc’s Workshop.

    I wonder how they’ll deal with the Fraggles in the outside world either they can ignore the fact that Travelling Matt was seen throughout the series interacting with humans as the Muppets usually do and have the Fraggle’s be these strange creatures in a new world were humans would be curious as to what they were (as Doc was at the end of the series) or they go the other direction where it’s normal to have the Fraggles interact with humans as Uncle Matt does and as do the Muppets & Sesame Street characters. I think I’m thinking into this a little too much now

    If they do decide to go the “it’s normal to have the Fraggles in the real world” way maybe it could go a little something like this

    The Fraggles having just entered “Outer Space” walk through a park and come upon Statler & Waldorf sitting on a bench. Like if Disney was about to let that happen but anyway…

    Statler: hey look who finally came out of their hole in the wall

    Waldorf: it’s those guys… wow the company must really be looking for new ideas if they’ve brought these guys back

    Statler & Waldorf start laughing at the Fraggle’s who just stand their watching them. A daughter and her father pass by

    Girl: (Pointing at them) look Daddy, Muppets!

    They walk away

    Gobo: hey we’re not Muppets! We’re Fraggle’s

    Wembley: Gobo…. What’s a Muppet?

    Gobo: I don’t know it must be something strange and silly these silly creature like

    Boober: thank Fraggle we’re not Muppets; just thinking of what they could be makes be woozy… I knew I should have stayed back home washing laundry

    Well maybe not exactly like that but it would help explain the situation. Anyway I’m getting to worked up over this movie just typing this message so I’m going to stop now and go to bed, if I can finally get to sleep.

    :smirk: :excited:

    Not necessarily; Toronto is still a very popular place for films to shoot (along with LA, NY, Chicago, Orlando, etc.) Apparently it's cheaper, too.

    To think... I was distraught with fret and worry nothing has been said about this film in some time. Now we have an offical announcement.

    I've said it before, and I'll say it again. I've always been cheated by the fact there was no FR movie. We had Follow that Bird, and 3 Muppet films... (at the time) but Fraggles were regulated to premium cable, leaving fans without it to watch the animated series. It wasn't bad... I love the Fraggles, and that's all I've really seen at that time, but it's not the real show.

    Seeing Fraggle Plush at Mainstream Target gets my hopes up. No more Hot Tpoic/Newburry comic cult 80's fandom... it's going to go mainstream, so the chances of the movie are greater than before.

    I'm looking forward to this picture. I am optermistic enough to believe that the film will be a good one.
    As anyone who has viewed my profile will know, Fraggle Rock is my favorite of all the Muppet productions.

    I'll read the article but my guess is that they assume Disney owns Fraggle Rock also, when in fact they don't.
