We Need Another Movie

    To be perfectly honest, TM was a modest success, a sequel was announced not too long after, but we didn't exactly see a wave of Muppet stuff after that first movie. Maybe some promotion when it hit DVD, but that was about it. Even after a period of modest success, they were all too cautious with the characters for fear of overexposure (though every other franchise they own is pretty overexposed), and then had a huge burst right up for MMW. Maybe had they kept the momentum going after the first movie, there would have been more interest. I'd say having the interstitial and other taped things a year after the movie that wasn't as successful was more than they did for the movie that was.

    Ahhhh Tom Bergeron is filming something with The Muppets!!! I wonder if this was what Peter was talking about...:p

    Woo-hoo! I'm a huge Tom Bergeron fan, so anything that combines both him and the Muppets automatically earns awesome points with me! :excited:

    If you zoom up on Tom's card, it says "YouTube" at the top, but I can't make out any of the other letters. They're obviously filming something for Youtube, but I have no idea what.

    The date 3/23 seems to have a bit of significance as well.

    True, seeing that 3/23 is tomorrow. Can we be expecting to see this video hit the internet tomorrow?

    Hm...you know after The Muppets film a video there must be a looot of editing and polishing up, but still, it'd be awesome if it were released tomorrow!:p

    I also read Tom is leaving AFV and he said he's taping the final episode at Disneyland...soo it could be possible that they're filming over there, I dunno.:)

    Maybe the production wraps on the 23rd. I don't know how quickly they can roll these out, so you have a good point.

    I remember back in the day when he was only a local talk show host. It's almost surreal to see how far he came since then. Granted, that was back in the 80's.

    A few more photos I found across Twitter...this looks like it's shaping up to be a very interesting project! My guess is another Muppisode!

    And, apparently, Moby has something to do with it!

    I know this is not the case but I hope It Is a new Muppets Movie with this same group of film Makers, I highly Enjoyed The Muppets 2011 movie and Muppets Most Wanted, and I know the Box Office for MMW stunk but This series needs a Trilogy otherwise It just wouldn't feel right:sympathy:
