ESPN is hoping to show Lil Baby, the new character from the hit ABC series “The Muppets,” in action in the fall.
The character is currently filming a special episode of “The Mighty Ducks” on ABC Studios in Atlanta, Georgia.
In that episode, Lil Baby’s dad will introduce the new characters.
ESPN will also have a sneak peek of the new animated feature film Lil Baby at its new studio in Atlanta.
The film will be released worldwide by Disney.
“Lil Baby,” which is based on the hit animated series by David M. Katz and Nick Kroll, follows a family of nine as they try to keep a secret from their younger sister, Lil Bean, as she goes to live with her grandmother.
The Muppeteers created Lil Baby for the show, but he later appeared in the film “The New Adventures of Baby”.
“LIL BABY,” the latest Disney animated feature, is set for release in 2018.
Lil Baby is the newest addition to the Disney/Pixar family of characters, following in the footsteps of characters like Muppet Babies, Woody, and Winnie the Pooh.
Lil Bean’s mom, Lily, has also made an appearance in several Disney animated features, including “The Lion King” and “Beauty and the Beast”.
Lil Baby and his friends are inspired by the Muppet family, with their names being loosely based on famous Muppet characters, including Bubbles, Fozzie, and Piglet.
The new animated film will focus on Lil Bean and his adventures as he and his pals embark on an adventure to save Lil Bean from a monster called the Black Bear.
“The new animated movie Lil Baby will be an exciting adventure that takes us back in time to the Muppet Show era of classic cartoons and the characters’ incredible journey from infancy to adulthood,” said ABC Studios president, Brian Grazer.
“With the help of a team of talented animators, we’re thrilled to be working with Disney on this project.
We look forward to showcasing the world’s most famous Muppety and the Moustache Makers to audiences worldwide,” said Mattel Chairman, Jay Rosen.
“We are thrilled to bring these talented talented artists to Disney for a world premiere and we look forward in working with them to make Lil Baby a part of Disney Parks and Resorts,” said Jeff Zillgitt, President of Original Content, ABC Studios.
“I can’t wait to see what these talented filmmakers can create in this world-class world-building facility,” said Disney/MGM Studios president of original content, Mike Fleiss.
