Kids of the 80's, you'll be stoked to hear this news!

The Weinstein Co. is going to turn Fraggle Rock into a live-action musical movie!

Super fun!

A new generation will get to dance their cares away and worry another day.

According to Variety, just like the series, the film will be populated by a mix of human characters and Fraggle Rock puppets. The pic will take the core characters Gogo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red outside of their home in Fraggle Rock, where they interact with humans, which they think are aliens.

Stay tuned for the release date and more deets!

    omg …. this is a real "squee" moment for me …. I love the fraggles I have em on DVD… when i was in grade 12 my media class went to the cbc and they has the opening themes from all the shows they aired and when fraggle rock came on we all clapped along and everyone felt silly when we realized we were all doing that - it was just ingrained that when the song came on you clapped along- like pavlovs dog. Imagine 20 17 and 18 years all doing that though ,it was funny

  62. Shannon says – reply to this


    62

    As a child of the 80's who grew up watching Fraggle Rock, this is fucking blasphemy and further proves that there are absolutely NO original ideas in hollywood these days. Shame on the Weinstein Co!!

  63. Becca says – reply to this


    63

    I am sad to make this correction because it shows how much I loved the show but it is "Gobo" not "Gogo":)

  71. Bie says – reply to this


    71

    Re: Jexie – The Fraggles considered everything from Doc's workshop and beyond to be Outer Space. Hence, humans would have to be aliens.

    I prefer the appelation 'Silly Creature', myself. They'd better have Uncle Traveling Matt in this one.

    Ah…I remember it was only a little over a year ago when The Weinstein's took the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchise, and drove that shit right into the ground. Not looking forward to them doing it to yet another amazing childhood memory of mine.
