Muppets dead at Disney+ before they even started

September 17th, 2019 by Geralt of Australia Comments

It seems like Disney+ have changed their minds on a Muppet revival.

Actor Josh Gad (Pixels, Beauty and the Beast) along with Once Upon a Time creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis were originally tasked with writing the script for the show but the project has since been canceled with Josh taking to Twitter to share with the fans.

An Instagram post from Josh also shed some light on what the vision was for the new series which was meant to be called Muppets Live Another Day: “It was going to be Muppets by way of Stranger Things and feel like a movie spread over 6-8 episodes. Part of the joy for us, by placing the Muppets in the middle of the 1980s, was to subvert and comment on our current love for all things nostalgia while at the same time allowing the characters to tell a story that would ultimately lead to and end in present day, revealing some secrets along the way.”

This would have been interesting as it was also meant to be a follow-on from the 1984 Muppets classic The Muppets Take Manhattan.

This is a sad bit of news for anyone who grew up watching the show as I know there are a lot of fans still out there who hold out hope to see the real return of Kermit.
