Zappa Discusses "Fraggle Rock" Movie

Zappa Discusses "Fraggle Rock" MovieSubmit Comment
Ahmet Zappa spoke to MTV about the high-profile assignment of developing the full-length rebirth of "Fraggle Rock." The vibrant 1980s TV program Jim Henson pitched to networks, as the children's show that would end wars. The show was packed with messages about racial tolerance, creature codependence and even the importance of recycling.

"I grew up having the Fraggles on television, singing songs that I thought were really catchy and fun," Zappa remembered, professing his love for the colorful 22-inch characters and the Gorgs, Doozers and talking trash heap that surrounded them for five seasons on HBO. "There are a lot of messages in 'Fraggle Rock' that fans have kept close to their hearts, so we have to be respectful of the television show and very respectful of Jim Henson's Fraggle message. As far as the movie's concerned, that's what we are focusing on now: how to maintain Fraggledom."

While he didn't mention too much of the plot, he added that the major details should be released after the holidays. "We are moving as fast as humanly possible and Fraggily as possible," he added. "The Fraggles need to be here sooner, rather than later."

One thing he is sure about, is that Traveling Matt is in the movie, referring to Gobo's adventurous uncle whose naive reports from Outer Space are indicative of the fish-out-of-water humor Zappa will embrace. "The funny part about Traveling Matt and Outer Space is he'd see a fire hydrant and assume it was a person. He thought cars were animals, that they were living organisms, and he thought elevators were people changers, because the doors would close and then open, and there'd be new people in there all the time."

When talk turned to the monstrous neighbors that tormented Gobo's gang, however, Zappa got suspiciously tight-lipped. "I can't say too much about the Gorgs right now," he smiled cryptically. "That stuff is top secret."

Keeping the CGI to a minimum, Zappa and the Hensons plan to return to the magic of the original Muppet movies. "There's going to be human interaction with Fraggles," he said, adding that the film will feature plenty of celebrity cameos.

The movie will be produced by Jim Henson's daughter, Lisa, and directed by his son, Brian. Walt Disney Pictures are aiming at a late 2008 or early 2009 release date.
