A Muppetational Legacy with D23

18 and Social Channels

It’s time to play the music and light the lights as D23: The Official Disney Fan Club takes us on a celebrational Muppetational journey looking at the legacy of The Muppets with those that know them best.

With so many milestones to celebrate this year, from 25th anniversary of Muppet Treasure Island and the 30th anniversary of Dinosaurs, to The Muppet Show arriving on Disney+, it takes a whole week of Muppet mayhem to express our excitement!

Host Leigh Slaughter (Vice President, Muppets Studio) is joined by legendary Bill Barretta (Puppeteer, Pepe, Rowlf, Swedish Chef), Dave Goelz (Puppeteer, Gonzo, Bunsen Honeydew, Waldorf), Kevin Bishop (actor, Jim Hawkins), and Brian Henson (Puppeteer, Director, Producer, Chairman of The Jim Henson Company) for a fun, wide-ranging conversation that looks back at Disney Legend Jim Henson and the long and successful collaboration between The Muppets and Disney.

A Muppetational Legacy with D23 will premiere Thursday, February 18, 2021, at 7 p.m. EST / 4 p.m. PST.
