20100130_muppets.pngI love me some Muppets.

And I'm one of those rare Muppet fans who think that Disney purchasing them wasn't a bad idea.

Granted, I'm pretty pro-Disney, but I think that they can house a stable of evergreen characters better than the next mega-conglomerate.

However, since the 2004 announcement the integration of the Muppets into the Disney stable has been slow. What have we had, one special? A theme park advertising campaign?

But now we have this:


Disney is working on a new theatrical Muppet movie, tentatively titled The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made!, and now we get this news story: "Flight of the Conchords Co-Creator May Direct the New Muppet Movie".

If you haven't seen Flight of the Conchords you might be missing out on something terribly clever. I can imagine some people might not like it, but I think it's a riot.

But best of all, it's perfectly suited for the Muppets. The show has a dry sensibility, as well as the odd (and I do mean "odd") musical number.

This is fantastic news. Fantastic.
