Don't forget about the deaths of Mr. Hooper and Jim Henson.
We're going to release everything we get the rights to clear (which means we need to get approval from all necessary parties and, in some cases, pay to license). We'll do our best!Thanks!!
I'm so pumped for this!!
Just to be sure, you're going to release all the muppet footage you have. Right?
Clearing music is actually quite complex and expensive. The soundtrack will be primarily original score by Josh Johnson, our longtime collaborator, but there may be a few surprises in there depending on what we can work out!It'll be great either way, but I've been wondering the same.
Hiya!i wonder if they will extend the pledge for more support from us muppet fans. then i wonder if caroll will read some of the letters from his fans.
No, The Walt Disney Company owns that special, and Lionsgate has the current video rights to stuff from The Jim Henson Company. And while Lionsgate does take down YouTube videos of material it holds video rights to, a film company would need to clear rights before using clips. Not sure if they'd need to negotiate with Lionsgate if they wanted to use footage owned by Henson that Lionsgate has video rights to, but either way, they would be paying for clearances on clips, something YouTubers usually don't do.Doesn't Lionsgate presently hold the distribution rights to that one? I don't think we'll be seeing it for this project.
