Fraggle Rock: Rock On! teaser: Apple TV+ reviving classic series
Apple TV+ has debuted the first teaser for the revival of the iconic HBO Jim Henson children’s series, Fraggle Rock, entitled Fraggle Rock: Rock On!, which is now available to stream on the fresh streaming service. The teaser can be viewed in the player below!
The plot synopsis for the series is as follows:
“The beloved stars of the classic ’80s series — Gobo, Red, Boober, Mokey, Wembley and Uncle Traveling Matt — join together again for new stories and classic Fraggle songs that show everyone how we are all connected through friendship. While the Fraggles might be in different parts of the Fraggle Rock caves, they can still find ways to have fun together, with music, silliness, special guests, and of course the help of devices created by the industrious Doozers — lovingly called the Doozertubes!”
The revival series will feature a collection of mini-episodes that, according to Apple TV+’s press notes, were “shot on iPhone 11 phones from the homes of the production team and individual artists from all over the U.S.” amidst global health lockdowns. Rock On! is produced by The Jim Henson Company and executive produced by Halle Stanford and John Tartaglia.
The original series, which premiered on HBO in 1983, featured a world populated by a mix of human characters and Fraggle Rock puppets. Initial plans for the movie had the core characters Gogo, Wembley, Mokey, Boober, and Red leaving their home in Fraggle Rock and interacting with humans.
The pilot episode for the series is currently available for streaming on Apple TV+.
