Your dreams have come true! Announced earlier today through The Muppets’ social media channels, a CG-reboot of Muppet Babies will be coming to Disney Junior in 2018! Details about the show are still pretty minimal, but Disney Junior has released the very first photo of what the core characters will look like in their CG forms.
This isn’t the first Muppet venture onto Disney’s preschool target channel, Disney Junior. In early 2015, The Muppets starred in Muppet Moments which featured the Muppet interacting with kids in two-minute interstitial segments. Disney Junior’s next Muppet experiment will air in 2018 when Disney’s all-new Muppet Babies will finally make it’s debut.
“We are proud, and a little bit giddy, to begin production on our new version of the much-loved Muppet Babies,” said Nancy Kanter, executive vice president and general manager of Disney Junior. “Parents will delight in seeing their favorite Muppets in the mixed animation style they remember from the original series, and kids will be introduced to this warm and zany world made just right for the Disney Junior audience.” No premiere date or any other information was shared at the moment, but keep checking back here on The Muppet Mindset as we’ll have more info on this series as it becomes available!
