-An adult version of the baby from the first Ice Age movie to reunite with the rest of the herd.
-“A Bugs Life II,” with Dot growing up and learning the duties of a princess in Atta’s place.
-The Iron Giant II: He sacrificed himself at the end of the movie and his parts went ALL over the place…but he DIDN’T die. I always expected a movie where his parts finally came back together and he reunited with Hogarth.
-The chipmunks singing “Boys and Girls of Rock and Roll” in one of their live action movies
-For Jack to be reunited with an older version of the baby he took care of in the first series (Samurai Jack)
-A modern crossover between the newer Sesame Street characters and the newer Muppet characters, just like the specials in the old days
-There to be consistency in the fact that in the first Monster’s Inc. movie, Mike told Sully, “You’ve been jealous of my looks since 3rd grade,” rather for them to make a completely new plot where the first time they met was in college.

Do you know what the beauty of this scene at the beginning of The Muppet Movie is? It’s that Kermit has just been approached for the first time by a Hollywood talent agent who tells him he’d be a shoe-in, and that he could be rich and famous. Kermit actually couldn’t care less about that, and he’s pretty happy right where he is. But then the agent tells Kermit he could make millions of people happy. That’s when Kermit first feels something stirring inside him. Kermit is the least egotistical character I’ve ever seen try to pursue fame and entertainment. He also shows that he’s scared to leave where he’s comfortable, as many very normal people are. Why leave a place that you’ve known your whole life for the chance at something that seems so far fetched that it can’t ever be real? And yet, despite that, he feels called to do something bigger. He hints at it only a minute or two before that in the opening song Rainbow Connection, saying he hears some voice calling to him that he can’t ignore, and that there’s something he’s supposed to be. Kermit is the ultimate embodiment of stepping outside of one’s comfort zone and giving something a chance against all odds, and not even for himself, but because he thinks it would bring happiness to the whole world.
We should all strive to be like the Kermit portrayed in The Muppet Movie.
