    I think he said that during one of the interviews he did after "Being Elmo. As for Matt Volgel, although it has not been officially announced, it can be assumed, since he has taken over many of Jerry's old Mupptets.

    Is there a link to a YouTube video or something where Kevin mentions that Clifford will be in the new movie?

    It's mentioned in this Muppet Mindset article.

    Here's some more second-tier Muppet characters that I think would be nice to see in the movie, even though most of these ones are a long-shot:

    -the Talking Houses
    -Howard Tubman
    -Leo & Grump
    -Taminella Grinderfall
    -King Goshposh/King Rupert
    -Leroy the Donkey

    Considering a recent article stated that Segal and Stoller tried their best to include "every Muppet you can think of", maybe the title of this thread should be changed to "Minor Muppets you'd like to see get sizable parts in the new movie". ;)

    Hopefully when they said it'd include every Muppet we can think of they mean it, even if it doesn't include Sesame Street or Henson characters (or Bear in the Big Blue House, who are owned by Disney; btw are the characters from Dinosaurs owned by Henson or Disney? The credits and DVD packaging doesn't say). So I'll expect everybody from The Muppet Show and every project directly associated with the show (if somebody I expect doesn't appear on-screen, would that mean Henson owns said character?). Of course if it has a big crowd scene like at the end of TMM and MTM (and even various crowd scenes in MCC), we might have to wait until it comes out on DVD to know of everybody that appears on-screen (unless of course a book adaptation or merchandise includes the image).

    I don't know if they'll go so far as to rebuild every single frackle and whatnot. I'm hoping they'll drill down as far as Wayne and Wanda.

    I wonder if the movie will have any puppets that were used before the sale of the Muppets (as opposed to having everyone rebuilt either recently or for the movie). I would expect many of the puppets used on Muppets Tonight to still be in good use (especially those who haven't been used since).

    Somebody mentioned the Houses, and somehow I don't know how they would work, unless they made a Houses sketch like on the show.

    Considering it'll have "every Muppet you can think of", I think it's safe to say that, even if it doesn't have every character we can think of (I wonder if Jason Segal will get fan mail pointing out any absent character), it should have any Muppet used within the last 3-5 years.

    And depending on how many characters were rebuilt for this (obviously Thog and most likely Uncle Deadley, but who else?), I hope Disney finds ways to continue using all newly-rebuilt minor Muppets.

    I can see them rebuilding every single frackle, but I can't see them rebuilding every single whatnot.

    The frackles and whatnots are two completely different species of characters.

    I think I mentioned this before, but if there's going to be a lot of minor Muppets appearing ( perhaps in crowd scenes etc... ) I strongly suspect that for reasons of time, budget and pure logistics, many of them will be CGI reproductions dropped into the shot. I hope I'm wrong and that they have indeed gone to the trouble of rebuilding lots of old, obscure characters. Yet something tells me that the cheaper option will have been taken, particularly if the characters in question are unlikely to be used again.

    No i think they will take the time and re build.

    They did rebuild Thog after all.

    right and im sure that even if they are not doing a movie or something that they still keep some of the minor one kept up as well.

    My worry is that Segal was so focused on the "classic" aspect of the film, that he was completely unaware to feature newer characters like Pepe, Carl, etc. the fact Pepe is nowhere to be seen with the Muppet Movie bothers me.

    rowlfy662 Well-Known Member

    agreed there it is also worry me pepe is no were to be seen and if sal and johnny are not in it either even if its a cameo i shall cry along with not dr phil considering how funny he was in muppets from space and more jokes could be made featuring him and mulch :)

    Who from photos, the trailer, and description seems like he'll be featured quite a bit with the main gang

    Pepe is going to be in the new movie, but in a smaller role than previously.

    Clifford will be in it too.
