In 2004 the Jim Henson company made a deal with the Walt Disney Company for the use of their Muppet characters, and the deal still continues today.
Disney just announced at the D23 Expo that there will be a new Muppet film. We totally saw this coming after we told you all that the upcoming campaigns promoting the Disney theme parks included the Muppet characters!
The new Muppet movie will be titled “The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made.”
Actor Jason Segal from “How I Met Your Mother” and “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” will play a lead role in the film alongside the wide array of Muppet characters. Jason will also be writing the movie script.
The plot of the film revolves around the Muppets working with Jason to create a film, cheaply.
Are you excited for this upcoming movie?
