    Just supported at the $150 premiere reward level! What an amazing opportunity! I wonder if it will go back up or if it's staying at $150.

    The campaign just ended recently and they reached their goal. I can't wait to see the first official trailer for this movie. I donated $60 so I'm super excited to get my green Grover. :super:

    Does anyone know if there's been any new updates yet? Just though I'd ask. Thanks

    Every chance I get, I look on both of the websites, and oddly enough there haven't been any in quite awhile. Indiegogo has made it well past their $100,000 goal and according to the 2018 page on Muppet Wiki, the documentary is set to be released this year.

    All in all, you're right- it's rather strange that we haven't gotten any kind of updates lately.

    Yeah it is kind of strange that something hasn't been said since last year. I'm wondering if the producers have been preoccupied with certain things in the film or if something else is going on. I actually posted on their Facebook page a few days ago asking what's up but have not heard back anything yet. I wonder if we can email them?

    The Wiki will have to be changed to sound more neutral; it must have come from one of their sites originally.

    I wouldn't be surprised if they were holding out on releasing it until next year to coincide with the 50th anniversary.

    EDIT: Their preview image on their official site says "Coming 2019," so let's assume it'll be then.

    Yeah, the place with the most updates would be their Facebook page, so you can check that every once in a while.

    Good news. I just got a message from the producers this morning. Here's what they said:

    "Thanks for checking in! We are going to put out a huge announcement in the next few weeks. Everything is going great!"

    Looks like we'll have new updates soon. Maybe even a trailer.:super:

    YES! Can't wait.
    I wonder how long the doc is going to be, because the book covered a lot. Will it be one movie length documentary about the conception of the show? Will it focus more on the early years of the show and be multiple parts? Will it's timeline go as far ahead as the book did, going all the way to the 90s?

    The thing I'm most interested in seeing is the reconstructed Season 1 set of the straight street.

    I can't see them going much further beyond the stoop they made, but I'm intrigued as to where this is going.

    Oh, I thought they were going to build a full replica of the Season 1 street.

    I mean, they were very vague in how they described it. But, the were only raising $100,000 for the entire shebang and I don't know how much they could spend on set building.
