Cult children's TV show Fraggle Rock
is coming to the big screen and is being developed by Ahmet Zappa
, the son of rocker Frank Zappa
. The hit 1980s muppet series, originally created by Jim Henson
, will be made into a full-length live-action musical fantasy starring classic Fraggles characters Wembley, Mokey, Boober and Red.
Lisa Henson, co-CEO of the Jim Henson Co., tells the Hollywood Reporter
, "I had an intuition that Zappa might be a 'Fraggle Rock' fan. He jumped out of his seat when he heard our idea of making 'Fraggle Rock' into a feature-length movie. The Fraggles didn't really get into the human world on the series, so we plan to make the movie more about the intersection between the Fraggles and the humans."
