Muppets in Space 1999 - Wendys
Muppets from Space is a 1999 American science fiction comedy film and the sixth feature film to star The Muppets, and the first since the death of Muppets creator Jim Henson to have an original Muppet-focused plot. The film was directed by Tim Hill, produced by Jim Henson Pictures, and released to theaters on February 28, 1999 by Columbia Pictures, being the last theatrical Muppet film not released by Walt Disney Pictures. The film is a deviation from other Muppet films as it is the only non-musical film, as well as the first film in the series that focuses mainly on a character other than Kermit the Frog. This also marks the first film appearances of Pepéthe King Prawn and Bobo the Bear in the Muppets franchise, having only appeared previously on Muppets Tonight. The film was shot in Wilmington, North Carolina at EUE/Screen Gems. As of 2002, Muppets from Space and the direct-to-video prequel Kermit's Swamp Years are the last two Muppet films to receive a G rating from the MPAA, as later Muppet films, beginning with the television Christmas film It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, have received PG ratings.
