The long rumored Disney+ Exclusive Muppets reboot, Muppets Live Another Day, will not be going ahead according to Deadline. This new scripted comedy series was being written and produced by Frozen’s Josh Gad and the creators of Once Upon a Time Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis.
Muppets Live Another Day was set to be a sequel to the 1984 movie, The Muppets Take Manhattan and was going to see Kermit trying to bring the Muppets back together.
Josh Gad took to Social Media to confirm the news.
Sadly, Eddy Kitsis, @AdamHorowitzLA & I have decided to step away from Muppets Live Another Day. Sometimes, creative differences are just that. We LOVE this franchise so much & truly wish them all the best.
Our 80’s-set sequel to Muppets Take Manhattan was pretty special & in particular I hope you all get to hear the four BRILLIANT songs written by Bobby Lopez and @Lyrikris10 one day soon. They are beyond your wildest dreams. And also see some of the ideas & concepts director Jason Moore was going to bring to the 6 part limited series. Love Disney +.
And Adam, Eddy and I cant wait to find more fun and exciting opportunities with our great partners over there. In the meantime, long live the Muppets!
At last months D23 Expo, Disney confirmed the Muppets would be coming to Disney+ with a brand new series, called Muppets Now.
Are you sad to hear Muppets Live Another Day won’t be going ahead?
