    Muppet fans can only generate so much money on films like Most Wanted. After that it is down to the general public to go and watch the film.

    If they don't there is not alot we can do. So don't blame us

    I'm glad you brought this up.

    Now we did get lucky that the 2011 movie was such a success, but even though it was the characters were still not exactly like they should have been. They were off and so we're there relationships with each other. The reason is not due to any one prefomer, but on the writing. When you have outside people come in and give there take on what the characters should do then you get things completely off. The ones who understand the characters are the prefomers and there inside witers. When you get people from the outside you get a glorified fan fiction.

    To add to my point Steve said pretty much the same thing I did, and fans thought he was crazy, disgruntled, or just plain lost his mind. Yet during the promotion of Muppet Guy's Talking Frank Oz also said the same thing, and everyone thought he was a genius, but there were still those who just refuse to see that Disney was simply looking for someone to blame for the failure of the show, and since Steve was being a "trouble maker" for standing up for the integrity of the characters that he would be there scapegoat.
    Look at whathe has been successful since Disney bought the Muppets. They were at one point killing it and really making a true comeback with there online videos, on both there website and YouTube. Those videos were sharp witty funny family friendly, and most importantly they represented the characters very well.
    Then we were given Bohemian Rapsody which was, and still is one of the best things the Muppets have done since the Disney took over.
    They were winning Webby awards and fans were getting the Muppets back, and new younger fans were coming in. We need to get back to things like that, and from what I'm hearing these concerts are doing that, but sadly not everyone can go to those. If they streamed those the Muppets would be hot way hoter then they are now.

    It may not be a financial success which really upsets me, but I think it may become a cult following.

    I haven't seen any formal, official announcement regarding the Muppets, though. Articles are saying "probably" and "maybe." Nothing official has been said thus far.

    So is this supposedly a "The Muppets" reboot, or is a full blown "The Muppet Show" reboot? Because when the prospect of the ABC show was first announced, the media framed it as a "The Muppet Show" reboot (which it turned out not to be)

    There’s been enough said so far that CLEARLY something is happening.

    We've heard hints, yes, but no official word. They've made official statements on the High School Musical and Monsters Inc. series, but nothing official on the Muppets.

    From the article:

    Most series will cost $25 million to $35 million. Already in the works are episodic spinoffs of Disney franchises like “High School Musical” and “Monsters Inc.” The Muppets will probably be getting a new series. There will be Marvel-themed shows. And Disney recently announced that a new season of the animated series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” would head to the service.

    Not too keen on that word "probably". Would like to see it in the "already in the works" category.

    Welp. Now that ICE AGE is a Disney property, that's being made into a series too.

    Yeah but they're going to change their character designs to the style of Disney especially The Simpsons because they're buying the rights from Fox.

    They aren't going to change the Simpsons
    There is no chance of that happening

    This is what their designs would look like if Disney decided to change them:


    Additionally, they'll censor out profanity and other adult related stuff when Disney owns them.
