    Hey, I was thinking this last night while doing the dishes.
    Maybe the reason why JHC is making two films (FR & DC2) is that they need some cash to buy back... something?

    Of course, this is all 100% in my own head.

    I always thought it was because now that they've lost the Muppets, they're trying to milk the franchises they've got as much as possible. :smirk:

    Sorry to dash your hopes and dreams. :grouchy:

    ... well, you didn't really because, well, neither of us base our ideas on facts. I could be wrong, or you could be wrong. I hope your wrong!

    What do you think the price tag is on the Muppets? Also, do you think there was a pay increase/decrease or no change in pay for the performers when Dis bought 'em? Even the veteran performers?

    I hope I'm wrong, actually.

    And I think things like performers' pay is a private thing...

    Who knows, but the value depends totally on the demand for them or projected income for various projects.

    As for pay, yeah it's private, but who cares? I'd have no idea what they make or how they're renumerated. I ber DG gets the most, seeming as he's the most senior, then SW, blah, blah blah. Then again, since it'd pretty much all they do, they may have to just take what they can get.

    I dunno. Interesting thought, though. Filmwork would obvioulsy be the most lucrative, and sonce they haven't had a theatrical release in over 7 years...

    Who cares?

    I want new DARK CRYSTAL/LABYRINTH movies, series, videogames, figures, etc.! :)

    But remember also that Whitmire and Jacobson are consistantly working over at Sesame Street.

    Of course. Nothing wrong with having more than one gig! We were just speculating about renumeration for donning the Disney 'classic muppets' (nudge, wink).

    I think it may be the other way round actually

    Maybe they now have time and funds to spend on projects they want to do in stead of keeping the muppet's afloat
