First, it was 'Three Men and a Baby'. Now Disney is planning on rebooting 'The Muppets' for its forthcoming streaming service.
According to a report, the House of Mouse will launch a new Muppets TV series. This is in line with a previous leak that said Disney was focussing on family-friendly content, with four or five original TV series and films debuting in the first year.
Disney also owns Marvel, and will pull all those original series from Netflix in 2019 when the current licensing deal expires. But it's not clear where it will house these more adult-themed series.
Rumours say it could outsource its more grown-up content to the Hulu streaming service, which shows 'The Handmaid's Tale'.
Original TV shows for the Disney streaming service include those inspired by 'Monsters Inc.' and 'High School Musical', as well as the first ever live-action 'Star Wars' series.
But the real surprise was the reboot of 'Three Men and a Baby'. The 1987 films was one of the stranger concept comedies of the 80s, up there with 'Weekend at Bernies' in terms of oddness.
