On August 23 during the D23 Expo, the House of Mouse announced the Muppets will be coming to Disney+ in 2020.
A short-form unscripted series titled “Muppets Now” will feature some of the iconic characters along with celebrity guest stars.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the show is described as “featuring a startling silliness and heartfelt fun.”
No other details on “Muppets Now” were available at the time.
D23 has had numerous announcements, including the short-form series “One Day At Disney” which follows Disney employees. They also announced shorts from Pixar called “Forky Asks A Question” based on the “Toy Story 4” character.
The Disney+ streaming service will launch in Canada on Nov. 12 and will include a mass collection of Marvel, Star Wars, Pixar and Disney productions.
