    Now I just know I can't be the only one who always always always (always) reads that as Pirates of the Dark Crystal and immediately imagines a POTC/DC cross-over...You know, Johnny Depp and Aughra flirting shamelessly...

    No? No? Just me...Alrighty then. Moving swiftly on...

    Yyyyeaaaahhhh, that's not happening.

    The closest we can get with it now is probably 2012, which would be perfect to go with the 30th anniversary of the first movie. I'm assuming that it's part of the distribution deal with the Weinstein Co. Maybe they'll pull a MFS/EIG thing and shoot both movies pretty much at the same time on the same studio lot. Hopefully.

    Is THAT what happened? (Because that would explain a LOT...)

    As far as I'm aware, or what has been announced, 2011 isn't official, is it? Neither is 2012. Although, there would be no problem with a 2011 release date. If it began filming this summer, or even during November/December, it could very easily be released next year. Movies work alot closer to their release date than you may realize. They were still making changes to the recent Star Trek movie the week before its release. Same with the Star Wars films. 2011 isn't inconceivable, but is it really official?

    Winter 2010 could technically be possible, too... Possible, but highly doubtful.

    ... Do I hear another fan-fic in the making?

    Yeah, EIG was filming summer '98 into that winter on a lot in North Carolina and MFS starting filming on the same lot just before Elmo went into post-production.

    You got to give credit where its due... the company has sure taken action to address its past neglect of social and community based interaction... call me arrogant but Im taking credit for it since Ive been calling them out on it forever on here and I know they check this place out... thats right, indirectly this was all my doing...

    - They got the twitter account
    - Set up a you tube page
    - Finally, and folks I do mean finally, got rid of the Henson Alternative stuff on their front page.
    - Got the facebook account set up

    Someones doing something right over there, the proactive changes are very encouraging. We'll get info on the project sooner or later this year, I do believe that, but I dont think the film releases this year (sorry Prats)

    We still wait, but things are looking better on the whole for sure...

    Henson is following Disney's playbook with the Muppets.

    No one said anything about the film releasing THIS year Uru....I believe, if you read correctly, I wrote NEXT YEAR.....and i'm actually confident it will happen.
