    RUMOR STATUS

    Blue Sky

    Disney Imagineering and The Muppets are dropping hints that they are working together. A series of posts on Twitter by the Muppets have them mentioning Imagineers Bob Weis and Joe Rohde. In addition, The Muppets also mentioned actor Danny Trejo and actress Mindy Kaling.

    It’s possible that this is nothing more than a means of promoting the Muppets but the mention of Imagineers has us calling this a Blue Sky Rumor.

    An older rumor related to the Muppets had a show taking place along Grand Avenue in Disney’s Hollywood Studios. The show was expected to feature Muppets in the windows along the street as a means of entertaining guests waiting to enter Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge. The execution of the show was expected to be similar to, “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History” where the Muppets gave their rendition of the various Star Wars movies.
