Is the New Muppet Movie in the works still?
Well... the short answer is yes.
The long answer is... Yeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeesssssss.
And the ridiculously un-understandable answer is;
It is quite possible that maybe it is not still in the works, unless it is unmaybe unstill in the unworks. If that's the case we can naturally assume that it probably may or may not be coming somewhere in the near or distant future. If not we can assume if it is not unstill not in the works we can not assume whether or not it is not still not being made, or not. But, if it unnot is not unstill in the not undeveloping stage your brain will explode if you try to follow this. Then, if the planets align properly, the peanut butter will not untap-dance resulting in a cosmic shift to not bring about the not making of this not movie. Then, if you take somemore 'un's and some more 'not's throw them in a bowl with the not untap-dancing peanut butter and the cosmic shift, mix it all up in a big metal bowl, stuff it into a cabbage and bake at 350 for 10 to 85 minutes, not only will you get something that is utterly disgusting, you will get a messy oven and a lovely centerpiece for those fancy dinners. Also, if you take the dirty bowl put it on your head and have a rambunctious five year old hit it repeatedly with a large wooden spoon you will have a headache, a need to wash your hair (getting the cosmic shift out is a pain in the butt!), and you will hopefully understand everything I have just typed!
There you have it, now if you will not unexcuse me, I need to not take an unnap, my not brain is not about to unmelt.
The short answer is:
Uh...you're welcome. I think.
We know the progress of the Fraggle Rock movie because Corey Edwards updates his blog frequently with his progress and any info he can give us. We don't know what's going on because these people don't have a production blog.
And frankly, Disney has nothing to gain by passing on this film for a piece of junk like Underdog or "Generic Talking Wise-cracking Farting Animal Movie #26." The two writers involved would be very annoyed at Disney, and Disney would risk losing 2 bright young stars they can get to do the voice of a talking animal in the future. Disney spent a lot of money getting the Muppets, and while they took their time strategically (no thanks to the rushed Oz), they want to turn that into an investment. We have since had a Christmas special and a Halloween special to come, a successful comic book line, and DVD box sets, while they take their sweet time to come out, sell pretty dang well when they finally get released.
Even Disney isn't that stupid and greedy to toss a potential, if nostalgic (unfortunately) relaunch at the franchise. Sony, Warner Brothers, Paramount maybe,... but not Disney.
Soooo....new Muppet movie and Fraggle film in 2011?
Works for me! I'll be there!
Get the tents... let's go start camping out now!
awesome idea! and guess what else? i'm dragging my friends to come see it with me! HAHA!
im with you. i will be there. i just need to buy a tent first.
Do we know for a fact that Jim Lewis has written a script?
nope he aint talkin.
Where did the speculation come from?
Well it came from a source that I have some faith in. Amy who is a member of this forum, and artist for the Peter Pan Muppet comic said she heard about it. So I don't know take it for what you will, after we all heard about it we have asked Jim in several different ways about this, and so far he has pleaded the Fith if you know what i mean.
I was excited about Segel's script but now that I know Jim Lewis may have a script out there. I am torn I dont know which way to go. HELP ME!
Well back when Letters to Santa was being filmed I e mailed Jim and told him how i was torn about him not being involved. He told me that even though it was not his baby that he just hoped that the Muppets where funny, and I think the same could be said about Seagl's movie. Jim is really all about the funny, and the trueness of the Muppets. the heart. I think if Segal will be about the same things then the movie will be fine.
We have seen in the past however what happens when we get people writeing or dercting for the Muppets that have no clue what they are doing. Lets hope that this is not one of them.
Thats part of my concern. I was excited about Segal because I thought he was the only one out there writing anything. Don't get me wrong. I think he is very talented and very funny, but he is just a Muppet writing virgin.
Mr. Lewis is a seasoned veteran and while he has not worked on a movie in a few years, we know that he knows our Muppets and will do his best to maintain the quality that we are looking for.
I am sure I will be happy with either. Just wanting to see if other people think the way I do.
I'm sure people feel the same way. Jim's popularity has grown over the last few years since he has been doing the Ask Jim and appared on the Muppetcast so many times. Some people will say if Jim anit got a part in it then i dont want to see it. Other people feel that Segal should write this movie and Jim should keep doing the books and muppets.com videos and little things.
I personaly feel Jim should be the head writer of the Muppets, such as Jerry Julle was. If he has a movie i think it should be made first because Jim really does know the Muppets.
