It saddens me so much that all three of these greats are now gone. The original Muppet trio. At least they’ll always live on in our hearts.

Jane Henson, the co-creator of The Muppets and wife of Jim, passed away today at 78. The two met in a puppetry class in 1954.

We’ve got a first look at The Muppets…Again! (which is the actual title of next year’s sequel to The Muppets). Oh, and an interview with Kermit. Yaaaay!

Download the Muppet Family Christmas soundtrack

From my favorite Christmas special of all-time. Sadly, the original is still out of print, so every year I watch a VHS rip. Get to work on those copyright issues Disney. You have the money.

Someone pointed this out to me: the most exciting thing about the Disney/Lucas deal? The possibility of finally getting these on DVD!
The Lucasfilm owned footage was one of the big licensing issues for Muppet Babies (the Muppets now also owned by Disney); it should be a non-issue now.

I went and wrote up an entry over on my Wordpress about what Jerry’s passing means to me personally. It’s pretty lengthy and I tend to ramble a lot in it, so I won’t go posting the entire thing on here, but here’s a snippet:

I’m sure every fan and friend of Jerry is thinking the same thing today: what did Jerry mean to me? Mortality tends to do that to us. It makes us think on all that the person did for us and the rest of the world. And Jerry did so much. He taught us to count. He taught us that halfway down the stairs is a great place to sit, and that being little isn’t such a bad thing (which is good to know, as I am a pretty short person). He taught us that silly things like boomerang fish can be art, that chickens can be beautiful, and that theatre phantoms aren’t always so scary. He taught us that adventures are worth going on, and what some people consider to be trash can be the most important thing on this planet for other. He even taught us that sometimes you just get bad service at restaurants and it can’t be helped (curse you, Grover!).

You can read the whole thing here.

“I want to try to make the Heat of puppet movies,” Berger said. “I want to be the Dark Knight or Heat but in a world where puppets and humans coexist. Brian was like, ‘This mystery actually needs to be interesting so that even if you took all the comedy out of it, it’s still going to be interesting to watch.”
“It is full-on R. There is swearing, there’s sex, violence, murder. There’s no way. Maybe with some work it could be PG-13 but as of now we’ve embraced the R rating.”
The Henson Company will be introducing new puppet characters in this film, and they’ll be giving some screen time to obscure, existing puppets you may not know yet. “Brian has actually already been working on the main character puppet. The Creature Shop has already made a few test puppets that I’ve met in person that are amazing. Then the whole world, because it’s not associated with The Muppets which are owned by Disney, it’s a movie in which puppets and humans coexist and a lot of the supporting characters are all puppets. So they have a puppet improv group called Stuffed & Unstrung that tours around America doing improv shows. They’re going to use a lot of those puppets but they’re also going to create a bunch of new ones. There’s a whole cast of characters in the script that they’re going to create from scratch.”

This just in: A new Muppet movie has been... CONFIRMED.

nevertoooldtolovemuppets:

For years Jim Henson’s beloved Muppets had been relegated to forgettable TV movies and embarrassing commercials until rising comedian/screenwriter Jason Segel spun the success of Forgetting Sarah Marshall into a tool to push his ultimate passion project, The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made. Of course, while his enthusiasm remained high, the title later changed to The Muppets, and the resulting film proved to be a fun family comedy that thrilled audiences and critics alike, and even won an Oscar for its pivotal anthem “Man or Muppet.” So a sequel of sorts seemed guaranteed. Sadly, Vulture reports that while Disney has made a deal with Muppets director James Bobin and co-writer Nicholas Stoller to create a sequel to the winsome adventure, it looks like The Muppets’ spearheader Segel may be left out.

The two articles I’ve read on the matter (over at Vulture and Cinema Blend) have mainly put focus on the fact that Segel wont be returning to lead the charge on the new Muppet film, since he has other movie projects coming out and he’s still doing work on How I Met Your Mother, but I wouldn’t be too surprised if she still got a part, or at least a cameo bit.

All that being said, OH MY GOD MUPPET MOVIE GAAAAAH!
