    Well, what they could do in the MTM tradition is to go around and pitch an idea for a movie or a television show (instead of a Broadway show) and have it based in Hollywood. That's basically what MTM was. It's such a loose concept and I think that's important. Too much plot is a bad thing. And trolling around Hollywood presents a lot of opportunity for cameos and dance numbers. Maybe the show they could be trying to put on could be centered around the Electric Mayhem and a concert. That's been mentioned on the forums before. Anyway. that sort of simple idea, if written well, is all the Muppets really need. Ultimately, all it has to be is funny. Everything else is window dressing.

    That idea's nice and all, but I wonder if there's a way to take the one good cue from MFS's concept and do something that's more of a character piece without some aspect of show business in the plotline. The only films that don't have that as a backdrop are GMC, MCC, MTI, and MFS. Even MWOOZ was about showbiz dreams. I'd love to see some sort of grand adventure where they don't propose a musical, have to throw a benefit show, go on a road trip to fulfill their destiny as big time stars. After the last two movies being based on comeback shows/tours, I think the time is right for a different Muppet plot line. There's got to be an angle in there somewhere that would work beautifully.

    My dream Muppet project would be a sitcom along those lines. It could be set in Los Angeles and loosely about them trying to film a movie or do a TV show, but mostly about their day-to-day lives. I think it could work, with good writing of course. I've always seeing the Muppets interact with "real people", and I think a lot of comedy could come from that.

    So Kevin's a male model now? I guess we won't see Clifford in whatever this new thing is.

    Why is it that every time I finally manage to fend off a huge crush on Bill Barretta, the internet throws something at me to spark it back up?

    I mean, c'mon! The man is handsomeness personified!!! :flirt::flirt::flirt:

    Are we sure that pic is recent and wasn't taken a few years ago? I just want to make sure before we start getting excited about any possibilities that Kevin is somehow officially working with the Muppets again.

    That said, I'm sorry, but Bill and Kevin don't really look like Frank Sinatra or Sammy Davis, Jr. I'm sure they can sound like them, though.

    May be Disney figures that the Box Office Numbers were so poor for MMW that they would try a different Marketing strategy next time around with a Theatrical movie, basically don't tell anybody we started Filming ?

    This clearly isn't a movie.

    Of course it's not. We would know by now if it were. Never heard of a big studio like Disney shooting a movie without anyone noticing.

    It's probably for something online, or something for TV.

    well Like I said May be they did not like the Box Office numbers and wanted to try a different Marketing strategy, I know a big long shot but Hey, who knows? :insatiable:

    I would think there would be a Press release for a TV show as well?

    That's not how movies work. I've never heard of a movie being produced in secret, except for well, Strange Magic, but that's only because Disney was dumped with doing that stupid movie.

    Debatable as it is if they should have another movie or not (which most fans can agree they want another), there's no doubt the Muppets should be keeping up on Youtube.

    Click bait vs. 10 bucks a head (or more) movie, click bait's gonna win every time. It's cheaper to produce and easier to get the word out. Casual fans who can't be bothered to see 90 minutes of the Muppets because they feel they've outgrown them on that level will love seeing a wacky, nostalgic trip that lasts 5 or less. And no matter all the talk about MMW not making that much money, they didn't exactly rush to create a lot of viral videos after the successful enough to be called a success TM film, either. And while it's debatable if that's why MMW underperformed, it's baffling that they had so much success with Bohemian Rhapsody only to not keep that up.
