Just slightly more surprising than the fact the Sun once again rose in the East is Wednesday’s revelation that studio execs intend to turn Sesame Street into a feature film!
After the success of last year's Muppets movie, and with the all the anticipatory giddiness of Fraggle Rock, it was INEVITABLE that sunny days would eventually sweep clouds away at theaters near you!
We just hope the flick isn’t so bad they have to screen it at Guantanamo, LOLz!!
This isn’t the first time those cray critters from 123 Sesame Street have made it to the big screen. Surely you remember 1985’s Follow That Bird, but we’re curious how they’ll approach the material this time!
Will the film teach kids to count and spell?
Or play the nostalgia card for older audiences like Jason Segel did with Muppets?
Or will writers give it The Dark Knight treatment, and transform Big Bird into a deeply troubled neighborhood watchmen?
Only time will tell!
