Will all of Letterboxd judge me for having a muppet marathon ? Maybe.
ANYWAY, Henson (though he didn't direct this) had big dreams for this, having wanted to make a feature film with muppets for years. They had no clue how muppets would look in the real world, or any other logistics really, but I think this was a great creative collaboration.
It was filled with puns, gags, and great musical numbers. Checking off all the boxes for what makes an amazing puppet film.
They were able to use technology that hadn't been used in puppetry before and really pushed boundaries.
This is no cinematic masterpiece, but it had a lot of heart put into it and sometimes that's all you need.
