Terry Pratchett’s “The Wee Free Men” is getting a film adaptation from The Jim Henson Company.

Pratchett passed away last year.

The '80s Movie Anders Holm Would Consider Parodying on Workaholics

30 June 2016 3:30 PM, PDT | POPSUGAR | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Season six of Workaholics is officially out on DVD, which means it's time to rewatch the latest episodes of your favorite cubicle-dwellers getting into trouble. We got the chance to chat with Anders Holm, who we also love from The Mindy Project, about the show, and while he couldn't divulge anything about next season (they literally haven't written it yet), he did let us in on his strangest fan experience, his favorite part of season six, and more. Popsugar: Have you had any strange fan experiences? Anders Holm: Yeah. This guy rolled up on me in Chicago and he recognized me and was like, "Yo, I'm a big fan," and we were just walking around the street and then this van pulled up with these prostitutes and they were like, "Any of y'all wanna f*ck?" And I was like, "Yeah, this guy does!" This was just a magical moment, »

To Laila Ali, the People's Champion was simply "Dad." The boxing legend's daughter paid tribute her father who passed away earlier this month at the 2016 Bet Awards on Sunday with an emotional speech. Ali, 38, choked up as she spoke, recalling the "loving, gentle and principled man" who was father to her and her eight siblings.

30 years ago today: The Goblin King lured us into ‘Labyrinth’

27 June 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Labyrinth, starring late rock icon Davie Bowie as the Goblin King, opened in theaters 30 years ago today. Though Labyrinth — a dark, wonderfully weird, glam rock semi-musical populated mostly by puppets — was never going to be a movie that won over a wide audience, it’s still wild to think about how poorly it did upon release given the film now has a secure place in pop culture history and in Bowie’s legacy. It opened at no. 8 at the U.S. box office and earned less than $13 million, barely over half of its reported budget. It was the final film directed by Jim Henson, and in the aftermath of Labyrinth’s poor reception, son Brian said of his father, “that was the closest I've seen him to turning in on himself and getting quite depressed.” Though Henson never got to witness the full fandom that would amass around the movie, »

Inventive Puppet-Centric Web Series ‘Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared’ Ends Its Wild Run With A Jolt

22 June 2016 8:00 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

When most people think of the best puppetry filmmaking has to offer, they usually think of the whimsy and heart of “The Muppets” or “Sesame Street.” The Jim Henson Company’s work is revered worldwide, and the feeling Kermit or Elmo can give to an audience as they perform a tune or dance a number is nothing short of magical.

Becky Sloan and Joseph Pelling are aware of this feeling. Their web series, “Don’t Hug Me I’m Scared,” which just released its sixth episode, subverts the Henson musical experience. Under the guise of that cheerful tone, they tell stories with puppets who discover the world and become uncomfortable, disturbed, and, well, scared.
