    Well folks...after months of toiling around red herring buyout news, Fox show tid bits...all this time a Muppet film of epic proportions had been in the works right under our noses.

    Aint It Cool News, along with Cinescape and IGN have just broke this news with a trailer, and it is simply astonishing.

    I guess the JHC were listening all along...this will be the epic Muppet film to end all Muppet films. Where Kermit has to go to the four corners of the globe to shore up support from all JHC related Muppets and creatures...Muppets, Fraggles, Skeksis, etc all coming together in unison to fight a common enemy of mammoth proportions that threatens the very future of Muppetdom. The trailer isnt the greatest quality, but you can tell JHC has found a seamless intergration of advanced puppetry with cgi.

    (this might take a few minutes to load on some computers)

    Isn't that a neat bit?

    Just so everyone knows, that's a fan creation by Chris Andrese that he originally posted on the old MC board almost 2 years ago now. I wish he'd done a higher quality version, but we've got what we've got.

    First off, your site Back Stage Left is a GREAT addition to the Muppet online resources!

    Second, yeah I found that on Scott's new site. Just thought it fit in so well with my running idea for a Muppet film(such a coincidence too! thats why I got a big kick out of it)...along with kind of making a satiracle point. I have no reccollection of
    Chris/Gobo posting that on the old MC, but am glad ya found it!
    Heh, wish it was in much better Quick Time, but you get the point from it, hehe.

    Thirdly, wow...I hadnt checked out archives of the OLD MC in AGES! Man...totally brought back memories. Wow...where did all those old time posters go?

    Great page !

    I downloaded the 'Something for Everyone' song, And noticed that its Jim singing !

    I heard Kermit (Jim), Joey Mazzarino or was it Kevin Clash.
    Probably Clash seeing as there was that 'Hoots' voice aswell.
    And Camille Bonara ?

    Ive never heard of this before, can you tell me what its about ?

    He did. It was around 15-17 meg or so if memory serves me correctly. It's a great piece. Chris did a wonderful job on it, capturing his unique style and flare of the Muppets.

    Phil, the 17MB version is the one I have up on my page. The lower quality one he posted was 10MB which I never saved.

    He *did* do a wonderful job on it. I especially like his CG Swinetrek and "Mouse Ears" Borg ship.

    Sorry about that Scott. Thought you were referring to the small version he put up. Glad you got it though.

    Congratulations on your site. I'll have it up on our links page later today.

    Well, it had me laughing, but not so much at the execution, but at the premise this "parody" is based on. Jim Henson was hardly mistreated by Eisner. He was simply unable to fully pull the wool over his old buddy's eyes as to the true worth of his company. What fouled the deal was not Eisner's greed, but the greed and cluelessness of Henson's heirs, who had a fatal propensity of believing their own hype.

    The truth is, Walt Disney, throughout his career, had more courage, talent and creative integrity in his little finger than Jim Henson had in his whole hand.

    Characterizing the Disney logo as a Death Star is a funny image, all right. But the Henson company didn't get boarded and pillaged, it imploded from the incompetence of its own crew. Is it any surprise that Disney has made no move as yet to bid on the wreckage?

    All of the above is just my - educated - opinion, you understand...

    Love the site, man! Really cool! I love the Jim Henson's Dead song. That's real nice. Haven't watched the trailer yet, the TMS original opener is taking forever!!!:D

    These observations are subjective and debatable; hardly worthy of beginning such a statement with "the truth is."
    From one geek to another, that's actually meant to be a Borg ship, not the Death star ;)

    I agree with pezbula... Murgatoad, you a such a creep!

    If Disney was SOOOOO creative, how come Mickey Mouse is a rip-off of Felix the cat.

    Obviosuly, some one should give you the meaning of "Muppet Fan Site", as in it's for fans, not for some little (aptly named) Toad like you, who keeps picking on us all the time.

    Point to ponder.... Who green lighted Cinderella 2? Henson or Disney?

    Yeah I got a few questions too. It deals with MIA folks, whos really who and here for what, and other things that need to be sorted out.

    First off, that has to be the most aggregious thing youve ever said..ever. Yeah, ol Walt was a brillaint man...brillaint. And yes I agree JHC imploded from within post JH. But that statement...my gosh. I think we know a little more now about things...so Murgatoad, for the sake of humbling us, just tell these nice folks who you are....And without further adieu, like Secrets of Magic Revealed...MURGATOAD IS: ......well you and I will keep that a secret. But seriously, its good to have a rabble rouser on here, but statements like that. *shakes head*

    Second, WHERE IN THe BLUE WORLD are a large platoon of one big time MC posters?

    Chris/gobo? I never knew he did great parodies like this...and if that was 2 years ago, wonder what hes been up to? He wasnt shunned like some folk were was he? Yeah we got into it big time on chat, but we were both immature.

    Ghingley/Big Bird: That lady was awesome! Man...

    Matt Laesch

    Mitch 'Kermithead' Bugajsky

    Andy Wolf. Sure his prices might seem a bit steep, but darn if he didnt have the coolest and rarest stuff to sell. We always needed a 'Lefty' in MC land.

    DW. Yeah we miss ya, even with your popins. Come back D Dub!

    Where did all these folks go? Hmmm....

    Going through the MuppetFest year book, it makes me sad theres abeen a rift between some of the old MC posters. Yeah I know I havent helped perpetuate any olive branch...but man, things seemed so cordial and cohecively unsiom on that fateful weekend.

    Finally, I found Phil's *other* website online...I didnt know Phil was into nutrition and a balanced diet!

    Phil's *other* site

    Anyways, yeah sorry about that Murgatoad. And people lets not start any flame wars...this thread is too good to risk getting closed. Lets try to keep this about the thread topic...

    The issue with murgatoad's posts will be addressed. His comments are so out there, you all don't even need to respond to them. That's exactly what he wants.

    Cory, all the folks you mentioned are still around. Most don't frequent the boards as much as they use too though. Thankfully so, everyone should have lives with friends and families outside of the Internet.

    Aw, ok. I was just curious, as so many of them made such a big contribution to the old MC and MC delphi forums. Heh, yeah I tend to forget about people's personal lives and busy schedules.^_^

    Btw, sorry for the Subway reference...Phil, I just had to! ^_^

    I know, I've even tried to put him on my ignore list, but still, he needs to be made an example of.

    I know not everyone likes the Muppets, and I feel that he does have some good points and all, but he just likes shooting fans down.

    I mean, I can't go to a Power ranger board and make fun of people who like that stuff. No! That's impolite.

    Anyway, my question about the film is that there are too many cross refferences. Some parts are Star Trek (I'm guessing, I'm not a huge fan, not that I have anything against it, it's just not my thing) and Star wars. In fact, I also thought the Mickey Mouse was the Death Star, and not the Borg. Oh well.

    Great satire, though!
