A Fraggle Rock feature film has been in the works for a while now
at various companies, with the property set up at New Regency in 2011.
The Jim Henson Co. and Montecito Picture Co. are producing, and now it
looks like there are two writers on board to pen the script. Rango
co-writer Jim Byrkit has been tapped to write alongside Alex Manugian
(who played a voice-role in the Gore Verbinski animated film.)

It should be interesting to see how the series is adapted to a film. Unlike The Muppet Show, which was a sort of variety show/sketch comedy series, Fraggle Rock
played more like a scripted series, focusing on the adventures of
special "species" of Muppet that lived in a cave-like structure where
they laughed, danced, sang and ate radishes and whatever those
constructions the hard-working Doozers were always building.
Interactions with the outside world came in the form of Gobo's Uncle
Traveling Matt, who was often writing to Gobo about the weird adventures
he got up to with humans. Attempts to retrieve his mail had Gobo coming
into contact with a human inventor and his muppet dog Sprocket. And
then there was the family of giant Muppet-people called the Gorgs ("Look
ma, I caught a Fraggle!") and the advice-giving Trash Heap.

Needless to say, the world was fairly well established in the series and
could certainly work for a movie, especially if they can put together a
catchy list of songs for the soundtrack.
