Speculation: Potential Sequel for "The Muppets"

    Yeah, I would have liked to see Rizzo and Robin too, plus others. I have to say that, although I like Pepe, I was glad to see that he wasn't in the last movie very much. He wasn't on the original Muppet Show, after all.

    Yep well that was why he only made brief cameo. I am just pumped because like most people said that means MORE MUPPET APPEARANCES!!!

    same with my dad he likes the muppets as he grew up with them but his fandom doesn't reach my level:)
    yeah i do too i really hoped to see robin in the last film as it was focusing on the muppet show days i thought they would have included him
  4. Hubert Well-Known Member

    I would like to see Robin in this film especially. I also would love some Rizzo, but unless they can't find anything to do with him other than pair him with Pepe (which is about it in recent years), then I'd take no Rizzo over a Rizzo/Pepe pairing.

    That and it's not like Steve is gonna be busy with Kermit or anything. :o

    One of my problems is that they push only Kermit and Piggy to the front way too much. For a lot of people, those are the only characters they recognized.
    "The green guy right?" You don't know how many people said that to me, along with "The lady Pig". I wish they'd have some other characters go out regularly too.
  7. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    Well no offense but they are the main characters that's kind of a given that Kermit and Piggy would be at the front and I don't just say that cause I'm a fan it's the truth. However I don't think that should mean they take away from other characters either. But the truth of the matter is most and I'm not saying ALL but the Kermit and Piggy relationship is what drives a lot of the Muppet franchise. Again not saying it's the most important and only thing to the Muppets but it's definitely one of the big reasons.

    I think the pushing Piggy and Kermit relantionship to the front is pushing all the other characters back.
  9. Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Basically its like Friends, "Ross and Rachel, right?" The will-they/won't-they romance seems to be the one plot that people latch onto to the detriment sometimes of other plots. Has anyone else noticed Gonzo's development from artist to leader? Probably not, they were more concerned with whether Kermit and Piggy were getting it on.

    That said, you'll note that Miss Piggy has had a very SMALL role in almost all the movies.
  10. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I still stand by my statement whether you dislike their relationship or not you can't deny it is one of the driving forces of the Muppets. And they are the main characters it's a given.
  11. Hubert Well-Known Member

    For me, my issue in the new movie wasn't so much the overuse of the K&P relationship, but more the fact that I feel like in recent years it has evolved from a lady pig in love with an unstable green frog into an ongoing melodrama. My problem is that I feel like the whole relationship lost a bit of it's original zing and has been morphed into something much more, say, serious. That's not to say that I think it used to be a joke, but I just feel like it has evolved into a way over recent years (and not just in this movie, either) that I feel could have been taken in a bit different route.

    Nothing stays the same forever. :p Honestly and not even cause I am hardcore fan I was happy with the way they addressed the Kermit & Piggy relationship you really got to see the problems they were having.

    Now as a Kermit & Piggy fan of course I love the new approach that Kermit has taken even outside the film. But I can understand why some people feel the way they do. I am very interested to see how it will develop further in the new film. I don't think it'll be as serious as the previous but I'm sure it will have it's serious moments. But more then that I BETTER GET A LOVE SONG!!! Rainbow Connection didn't count!!! :mad:

    Anyone else not psyched about new Muppets? You can't create characters unless you're a performer. Sorry, but I'm sticking to that.

    Obviously, I'm psyched there's a second film, but I wish they were doing something more original than doing what sounds like a tribute to the Great Muppet Caper.
  14. Hubert Well-Known Member

    Eh...I'm still not on the bandwagon that they are doing a tribute to GMC...I feel like a lot of that is over-speculation to what many fans may want to see than what is actually happening. Sure, some feel of it might be a tad the same, but I feel like Bobin, Stoller, & company are smart enough to avoid taking that route.

    What
    What are you even talking about? Miss. Piggy went through two different performers in the first season. Elmo went through several. Big Bird and Oscar where created before Carol came along. Most every character in The Muppet Show was thought of first, built, given a personality, and then lastly given a performer. Stop this nonsense...
  16. TheMonsterAteMe Active Member

    Some of you are just blowing smoke out of your butt for no reason. You are given the vaguest of vague ideas and all of a sudden, "NOPE!! I DON'T LIKE THAT!!!" Really? Get a grip. You don't even have an official synopsis from Disney. Stop acting like you are the only person who knows what this franchise should do when you have no idea. Disney had a great critical, fan, award winning, and audience success with the last film using most of the same team. Stop showboating and trying to look like the biggest (and most pretentious fan) and remember that.

    Some people seriously need to calm down over this film. I'm just saying.
  18. Beauregard Well-Known Member

    Not me:

    AAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYIIIIIIIIIIIIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! MUPPETS!
  19. Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    I don't mean calm down in that way. :p
