Speculation: Potential Sequel for "The Muppets"

    I agree! I'd rather see a MTM type scenario than a TMM, GMC type one. Although i wouldn't mind a few of the gang being split off if it works best for the storyline (i.e. Piggy)

    Naw, Labyrinth was cult with that crowd before that. And it was that Neil Gaiman/Invader Zim crowd that was the reason for the Tokyo Pop books. And I say good! I see nothing wrong with that crowd actually, and think it's a good thing.

    Actually, I agree. In fact, bring the Muppets BACK to NYC.

    Given The Muppets 2011 was pretty much a remake of IAVMMCM(even if it was an unconscious coincidental remake), I say TMTM can be a good influence for the next film

    Even though I have a thing against ginzu manga (there's too much authentic stuff we'll never get because there's no way for it to be marketable in the US... They had to make Crayon Shin-Chan a hard adult manga), the fact that it helped the popularity of a great Henson movie that didn't get respect when it came out is nothing but good in my book. Heck, FCBD '11, the Dark Crystal/Tale of Sand preview comics were the first thing they ran out of. That's popularity... or a short run.

    I'm sure that was a joke by the writers to indicate that some seriously gimmicky Muppet movie ideas were floating around before Segel and Stoller got down to business...

    ...but the second I read that I thought of one of my favourite parts of GMC, "Piggy's Fantasy," and then the diving-rats-retrieving-the-treasure bit in TMI, and the terrific "Octopus' Garden," "Friendship" and "Baby, Don't Get Hooked On Me" numbers from TMS, plus all the Sesame Street bits that ended with a "flooding" joke...

    It'd be a logistical nightmare to produce but it might be fun to see someday, after one or two more solid Muppet movie hits. Maybe it could be a spoof of classics like Jaws and Splash and more recent watery nonsense like Blue Crush, Fool's Gold, Into The Blue, Shark Night and Pirhana 3-D.

    And I must admit I like The Simpsons' "The Muppets Go Medieval" parody in spite of myself, right down to the fact that Troy McClure's supposed human co-star is real-life TMS guest Dyan Cannon, along with Homer's failed attempt to explain what a Muppet actually is.

    A Muppet horror movie in the style of that classic TMS episode where everyone dies...now THAT would be original.

    I'm gonna remain a bit skeptical with this, since I'm still waiting for Lemony Snicket 2 (which hasn't been discussed since 2009), but I hope they are working on a non-sequel.

    And I consider The Muppets as a bit of a documentary, if you disregard everything after MTM, due to Kermit and Piggy's break-up at that point. (Though, now that I think of it, since there's no mention of when they break up in the finished movie, it's possible they broke up later.) While the other movies were outside the Muppet universe, The Muppets is, if not anything else, a dramatization of the group's reunion. Ergo, Walter's inclusion in any future movies will not make them sequels, since he has joined the group as a Muppet. (And if anyone is still reading this, I applaud you, and shall soon reward you with a cookie. :insatiable:)

    And I wonder, since Disney was developing The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made at the same time that Stroller and Segel were developing The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time!!!, I'm curious if that's gonna be the next movie. And maybe to bring Walter into the mix, and pay tribute to the long tradition of fan-fiction, maybe it would be a script Walter wrote a few years ago, and Kermit decides to shoot with Gonzo directing, instead of having Gonzo writing and directing it all as it was originally planned.

    (I know I know a bit too much about TCMMEM, but I spent my whole weekend on Muppet Wiki. :) )

    Is it possible to know too much about TCMMEM?

    Also, I'd LOVE to see a Snicket sequel, but a direct sequel pretty much couldn't exist now. I'd love to see a Burton style claymation Snicket though...MUCH!

    I'm sure with the success of the movie and the demand for the DVD and bluray Disney will hop on this train and run with it. Muppet Mania is here to stay!

    Even before the DVD came out, they already planned a second one. But then again, the movie was supposed to help re-establish the franchise's potential as a movie. Thankfully for us, it worked, and didn't turn into a Superman Returns situation that doomed itself from a sequel that no doubt WOULD have done better.

    Considering the DVD sales are amazing, and hopefully more indicative of the movie's worth than the box office, there would no doubt be a rush of people who are literally banging their heads on the wall for missing out on seeing it theatrically that they'd see the sequel in theaters.

    And maybe, Disney will decide to have more Muppet releases, to try and cash in as much as possible. #FingersCrossedForTMSSeason4!

    I like that script idea JustinHoskie!:fanatic:

    Either way I would love to see another Muppet movie!! I honestly like the movies in the style of THE MUPPETS and Letters To Santa.. That is, The Muppets in our world dealing with fantastic events that could only happen in theirs..If that makes sense:crazy:.

    I'm personally hoping due to Blu-ray/DVD sales their gonna bring the muppet show back but that's another thread. LOL! But back on topic I hope since I'm a romance freak and Kermie and Piggy are my favorite we see more scenes with them. And I do hope Walter is in it I'm not saying I'd like to see him have as big of a role as this film as I don't really think he needs to but he is a Muppet now so I'm hoping he'll have some of prominent role.

    Yes, I can also confirm that the speculation of a Muppet sequel/ movie will take place. Through a source, cannot disclose name or company- but will tell you that the company airs a little something called SVU ;), got wind of the second Muppet movie being a 'sure-thing' at a board and entertainment meeting. Jason Seigel will not be appearing but will be mentoring the next writing crew. Personally, I hope they 'up-the-anty' on the musical numbers. I didn't find them to be that 'muppetesk,' if you will. Unfortunately, because my source has not come from Disney itself, I do not have any script details or spoilers. BUT if something comes up I'll post again in this forum, so keep a look out!

    I think Kermit basically stating it when he and Piggy were on the View is enough confirmation for me.

    I don't know how much of this is truth. they say Bill Bereta is going to be voicing Fozzie. We have not heard anything about the script being completed, or that they have started filming. We do know that they did want to do a caper, and that Jason Segal was not going to be in the movie plus we also knew about them bringing in new Muppets. So we know some about the movie but, I do not think they will call the movie Muppets 2 because they have never done a second movie and if it was a caper it would have to kind of fit in where The Muppets left off. That and the first movie really ended and did not leave anything for a part 2. The Muppets got the Studio back, Kermit and Piggy had made up and Piggy was going to stay, plus the gang was back on top and there fans where showing there support by the droves. So I don't really see how they could do a number 2 movie. there has to be another name for the movie, and I think the reason we do not know of it yet is because the script is not complete.
