And, of course, Disney also already owns THE MUPPETS, another great opportunity for synergy across the expanding Disney Empire. Somehow.
Here's when THE MUPPET SHOW collided with the STAR WARS universe in 1980.
The episode was shot at ATV's Elstree Studios (now BBC Elstree, home of EastEnders), just a short distance away from the Elstree Film Studios base of THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK, which was shooting on its stages at the time.
Frank Oz, of course, is another connection between the two worlds. Enjoy!
