Cancelan la serie de Los Muppets

Josh Gad, encargado de producir el programa que se incluiría de manera exclusiva en la plataforma Disney +, informó que la realización de dicho proyecto concluyó debido a diferencias creativas entre los involucrados: Adam Horowitz, Eddy Kitsis, el anteriormente mencionado y los directivos de la empresa. El reebot de seis capítulos ubicaría al grupo de títeres un año después de la, película de 1984, donde la rana Kermit y sus amigos llegan a Broadway para protagonizar un musical.

Misinformation is my least favorite kind of information so I thought I’d take a minute to clarify some news that broke today. After a little over a year and a half of working on a project called “Muppets Live Another Day,” @adamhorowitzla #eddykitsis and I have decided, with a heavy heart, to walk away. Some times creative differences are just that. The project, with original songs by Bobby Lopez and Kristen Lopez was to be directed by the great Jason Moore, (director of “Avenue Q” and “Pitch Perfect”). It was meant to be a limited event series that picked up a year after “Muppets Take Manhattan” and was essentially about what happens after you’ve reached the end of the rainbow. 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 1980’s, 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. It has been one of the great joys of all of our lives to write words for these iconic characters. We wish this franchise all the best and thank our partners at Disney+ and ABC Studios for the opportunity to develop something so fun and outside the box. They have been nothing but supportive and terrific and we can’t wait to play again in other sandboxes. While it is sad, I have no doubt this franchise, under its new leadership will find new and wonderful stories to tell. My only hope is that one day you can all hear the BRILLIANT music by Bobby and @kristenlopez5681 wrote for Kermit and company. The music is next level good. In the meantime, Adam, Eddy and I are already cooking up new fun ideas that we cannot wait to share. Until then, long live “The Muppets.” They have given us joy for over 40 years and I have no doubt they will continue to bring us joy for the next 40 years.

Después de poco más de un año y medio de trabajar en un proyecto llamado Muppets: Vivir otro día, Adam Horowitz, Edward Kitsis y yo hemos decidido, con un gran corazón, retirarnos.

Con canciones originales de Bobby y Kristen López, sería dirigido por Jason Moore.

Se suma a otra ficción rechazada anticipadamente, Libro de encantamientos, una adaptación de la historia creada por la autora Serena Valentino, la cual fue suspendida a finales de agosto.
