    It may have been the original concept of something for Disney Channel that lead to Disney XD but from what i got it did all gel just from one idea of doing "mini movies". Perhaps anything with Disney Channel was going to promote them coming to XD alongside the Disney stars? As i said, nothing was ever shot, which might be because there was a delay in them coming to XD. The two things sound very similar - whenever i heard anything about mini movies, it was always because Disney wanted to push broadband internet content which is a priority for them.

    As Frogboy mentioned, it is like they are using (or re-interpreting) writing or ideas from earlier ones we knew about. I think a lot of what existed, or was intended - we have now, or will now see used in some way on XD.

    And now the writers strike is officially over according to MSNBC, so yay. I can imagine there is actually several "top secret/very cool" projects in the works to be announced(hopefully by summer time)

    Going into 2009/2010, I think it's quite the possibility that we will finally see the glorious return of the Muppets and all related properties as many of us hoped for a decade previously

    I knew the strike would end before the Oscars. When Vanity Fair cancelled their annual party studios knew it was past the 11th hour! Good for everyone! Well...except when the absorbtion of DVD residuals hit us the consumer! Or did you think Paramount, Fox, Sony, Disney, Universal and Warner Brothers were going to take a paycut? ;)

    Let's hope there are no more delays! :)

    Well i heard that the Writers would be going back to work on Monday but for shows and such to back up to speed it would take up till Apiral.

    Most of the reports that i'm reading/hearing say the earliest day that the writers would be back would be Wednesday.

    All in all its good news for us Muppet fans, as chances are the writers strike was a factor with Disney's Muppet plans.

    Btw, is there finally a new official Muppets logo that isn't completely lame?

    Heh, I'm still waiting for someone to put up episodes of Little Muppet Monsters. Even if it's just the ones that were televised. So I completely doubt that.

    Anyway, the Writers are supposed to vote Wednseday, so they may get back to work the earliest Thursday. It seems that both sides have worked out a positive agreement, but I'd better just wait and see if they vote on it first before I take it as a given. Who knows what could happen between now and then.

    I would say if the "Movie interstitials" were made, or are being made, and they can't find the market for them, I'm reaslly pushing for them to at least put them up on Disney XD. At least that seems like a launching point for the next project. And I hope that project actually sees it through this time.

    Well that interesting! I'm just trying to figuer out who you are lol I know Telly and i know who does Telly, but I'm still confused.

    It's great seeing a Hollywood insider give his take on the Muppets...just to me an odd choice to use Telly as a moniker, heh(Telly is my alltime favorite Sesame character, whose extreme naivity and Wembleyness is his charm)

    Btw, has Jim Hill had any Muppet rumblings to report at all? He's been dead silent on the Muppets for some time now

    I really hate how you bash Disney and the Muppets! they are doing what they can LOOK OPEN your stuipd eyes! Take a good long hard look at the new Muppets.com you can tell there at least makeing a start. "Well there's no bears pigs or chickens" They feel they have to Re- intoruduce the Muppets. Right or wrong thats what they are doing and they seem to be doing it well. Stop it just freaking stop it

    ummm I don't think that's really the right thing to be doing dwayne, even if what they did was uncalled for.
    There are other ways to make people see things without name claling and yelling.:wisdom: :)

    For the record, the links at the beginning of this thread are a safer bet.

    That said,:
    Can't believe I'm actually defending Disney now, but they're planning something, and the website is pretty much a sign they want to do something. I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Muppet OZ was a huge step in the wrong direction. That movie set the Muppets back a few years, no doubt. And they've been very, very careful up to this point. Now we're seeing the beginnings of a real resurgence. Now that the writers have been back for almost a month, they'll be working harder than ever to try a new project out. And maybe they'll see it through this time.

    Wow! That new Muppet site looks great!

    Too bad that being Canadian (aka not American) excludes me from seeing ANY of its content.

    Hey! Does any one know if the Muppets will be teaching technology? Afterall, they're definitely in the right spot to do just that?

    Hi Kermie Fan and welcome to the site. I thought i would try and answer your question from everything that we fans know so far.
    Right now I think the Muppets are going through a phase of Re=introduction so to speak. What that means is they are trying to get the Muppets back to the way they where, like during the Muppet show. If your able to look at the new Muppets.com site you will see just that. They have a lot of videos of the Muppets just being themselfs, and not really trying to push anything, like a movie or a show or whatever. I think that the Videos are doing just what they are meaning to do, and that is showing people that the Muppets are making a comeback.
    That all said, now we have wonderful news that there is a great new movie in the work. The movie is getting a lot of buzz because it has some very big name writers and such. So i really don't think that right now that is the way the Muppets are heading. With all the facts that are out right now I just don't see that happing any time real soon. Hope that helps, and what i did was just combined three threads in one post lol.
