After years of negotiations the Fraggle Rock Movie has landed a home! New Regency has bought the rights to the film, which hopefully means writing will begin soon.
As happy as I am about this, one thing leaves me slightly worried…the possibility of CGI. I don’t mind CGI as an enhancement tool. I think it adds a lot to movies. But to replace a Jim Henson puppet with CGI? It is unspeakable. The fact that are considering this at all is irksome. If this movie is made without full Creature Shop force I shall be quite disappointed.
Hopefully, New Regency will make the right choice and bring the Fraggles in puppet form to the next generation.
