Tales from the Laughing Place Talks Muppets with Lylle Breier

This month's issue of Tales from the Laughing Place Magazine features an exclusive interview with Muppets Studio general manager Lylle Breier. In the interview Breier speaks about some of the current and upcoming Muppet projects.

Of particular interest Breier states that The Muppet Show: Season 4 is indeed on its way to DVD, but that it won't be out until 2010. The third season was released last May, and while no reason was given for the an almost 2-year wait between releases, fans may remember that there was an equally long 24-month gap between the release of season 1 and season 2.

In addition to the DVD updated, the interview gives details on some plans to expland the Muppets' latest retail experience. The popular FAO Schwarz attraction - The Muppet Whatnot Workshop - will soon come to both the Disneyland Resort in California and the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida. The interactive built-your-own puppet store will likely launch at Disney's California Adventure and Disney's Hollywood Studios in the near future.

Issue #14 of Tales from the Laughing Place Magazine is out now, so be sure to pick up a copy and read the full interview. For more information please visit LaughingPlace.com.

What will probably wind up happening is Disney will release season 4 to help promote the new movie in theaters and season 5 & possibly a full series set when the DVD of the movie is released.
