Remember Gobo, Red, Boober, Wembley, and Mokey? If so, you probably grew up watching Fraggle Rock, Jim Henson’s beloved live action series about a society of adorable cave-dwelling creatures called Fraggles.
After almost a decade of a Fraggle Rock
movie being in development, the Fraggles are finally coming to the big
screen in a live action movie, produced by and starring Jim Henson fan,
In a March 2015 interview for Variety, Gordon-Levitt says, “The first screen personas I ever loved were Henson creations, first on Sesame Street, and then on Fraggle Rock.
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.”
