The Fraggle Rock movie has been in development for nearly a decade. Often causing fans to wonder if it would ever gain some momentum and actually move beyond development. Now, it appears there is some movement with this movie. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has signed on to both star in and produce the Fraggle Rock movie.
Originally Fraggle Rock debuted in 1983 as a musical puppet television series. This will be a big screen adaptation of it.
“The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on ‘Sesame Street,’ and then on ‘Fraggle Rock,’” Gordon-Levitt said. “Jim Henson’s characters make you laugh and sing, but they’re also layered, surprising, and wise. From Oscar the Grouch, to Yoda, to the Fraggles. I’ve never stopped loving his work, even as a young frisky man, and on into adulthood. Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I’m grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project.”
At this time, it is still unknown when Fraggle Rock will hit the big screen. What is known is that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is now attatched to the project and will be working with New Regency, The Henson Co. and Lisa Henson to bring the Fraggles back.
