fragsDespite the fact that The Jim Henson Company sold the Muppets to Disney in order to focus on "more adult projects" (like Farscape), they evidently have retained an interest in bringing other, non-Muppet characters to the big screen. The first example of this new/old focus is a planned Fraggle Rock movie, in which the Fraggles will leave their home Rock for "outer space" (AKA Earth). Which, for the Fraggle fans out there, would be a boon on two levels. First, of course, more Fraggles! Second, it presumably would finally allow the Fraggles to interact with humans, something I don't think they ever did on the show. The target audience for the film is families (as opposed to kids), so expect at least enough cleverness to keep original Fraggle-watchers from dozing off.
