Hathaway mingles with muppets
Anne Hathaway doesn’t need you to tell her how to get to Sesame Street. The girl already knows - she’s starring in a musical inspired by the classic kids’ TV show, after all.
The actress will be joining the as-yet-untitled ‘Sesame Street’ flick, which is scheduled to begin shooting this June.
‘Portlandia’ co-creator Jonathan Krisel will be helming the picture, while ‘Kings of Summer’s Chris Galletta is handling the screenplay. This will be the third time ‘Sesame Street’ has hit the big screen, and with Hathaway involved, possibly the best.
But what’s a ‘Sesame Street’ movie without the Muppets that make it so memorable? Don’t worry, they’ll be there in full force. The film is expected to include mainstays like Big Bird, Cookie Monster, and Oscar the Grouch, to name a few. And you can’t forget about longtime residents like Grover, Bert and Ernie, or even Big Bird’s pal Snuffy!
The ‘Sesame Street’ movie is slated to hit theaters on January 15, 2021.
