Get Ready for a Fraggle Rock Movie!

by at . Comments

All of a sudden, Sex and the City: The Movie isn't the most exciting upcoming film based on television series. At least not to us.

It's been confirmed that the Weinstein Company will turn the Jim Henson series Fraggle Rock into a live-action musical feature, reports Variety.

Just like the series, the movie will be populated by a mix of human characters and Fraggle Rock puppets. The film will take the core characters Gogo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red outside of their home in Fraggle Rock, where they interact with humans, which they think are aliens. Obviously.

The show premiered on HBO in 1983, ran five seasons and was broadcast in more than 80 countries. It ruled!
