According to Variety, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will dance his cares away in the upcoming film adaption of Jim Henson’s Fraggle Rock! Fraggle Rock was a hit television series in the 80s about a society of Muppet creatures called Fraggles.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt spoke about his love for Jim Henson’s work and his excitement of working on the project: “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.” He continued, “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.”
A release date has not been announced.
