  • Here's how ownership breaks down, along with the date the relevant company acquired control: Sesame Workshop: Sesame Street Muppets (Dec 2000) Disney: All other Muppets, Bear in the Big Blue House (Feb 2004) Henson family: Everything else, including the Creature Shop, Fraggle Rock, movies like Labyrinth, the Hoobs, etc (May 2003) Before February 2000, the Henson company was independent.

  • Henson then sold the rights to the Muppets (and Bear in the Big Blue House) to Disney in February 2004.

  • It's interesting to compare the various press releases as the Henson family lost, gained, and again gave up control: Disney worked with the Hensons even before the 2004 deal.

  • As far back as 1989, the Walt Disney Company entered into negotiations to acquire The Jim Henson Company (then Jim Henson Productions) and the Muppets.

    Hello Ziyi
    Pictures, videos, and news.

  • The same myth was the basis of Walt Disney Pictures' 1998 animated feature, "Mulan." has tracked down the rumors and gotten the story straight from the source: However, Zhang Ziyi's manager Ling Lucas has personally informed me that Zhang Ziyi "has not fixed her next project as of yet" and "she's not in a hurry." It would be very uncharacteristic for Ziyi to sign up for a film with no director or writer attached, let alone of series of such projects, and this is what made the initial reports implausible.
