The best of the Jim Henson Muppet line, the Fraggle Rock gang is getting its own movie and Joseph Gordon-Levitt will star. *Stands on desk and screams, "Dance Your Cares Away"*


Variety is reporting that JGL will star in a Fraggle Rock movie. Little else is revealed besides this quote from JGL, where he says he loves Jim Henson's work, which yeah, obviously:

"Collaborating with Lisa Henson makes me confident we can do something that Jim would have loved. I'm grateful and excited to be working with New Regency on this project."


And that's all we know, besides the fact that the Fraggles are the superior Muppets of all of Muppetdom. The end. (Ed. note: Meredith's views on Fraggle exceptionalism do not necessarily reflect those of the rest of the io9 staff, which just engaged in a lively debate about the possible exploitation of Doozers.)

NEXT QUESTION: Who will play Marjory the Trash Heap?
