This needs to have a new director. NOT be a sequel. Have a more low key aesthetic style(ie: not so ABC/Disney family movie gloss look) like the original or an indie film, and be done right. Are they truly going to make this in time for holiday 2013? Where's the pre production? Wheres the movement on this? Somehow I doubt it. My dream would be to have a new Muppet film in 2015 to coincide with the new Star Wars and Avengers...TRIPLE DISNEY WHAMMY!
