If you grew up in the era of Muppets, your childhood was awesome! From the caring nature of Kermit the Frog to the frightening frown of Sweetums, Jim Henson's "Muppets" were the rockstars, main characters and center for millions of children around the globe. Thankfully, the franchise is still operating for the new generations but, those of us who grew up during Henson's lifetime, we get a little nostalgia when we think of the originals. The ones crafted by Henson, directed by Henson and voiced by the man himself. We've missed it but now, Disney+ is giving us a chance to relive just a little of our childhood again.

Today, Disney+ released the official trailer for the upcoming documentary “Jim Henson Idea Man.” Directed by Academy Award ® winner Ron Howard, “Jim Henson Idea Man” chronicles the story of extraordinary artist and visionary Jim Henson. In his 36-year career, Henson created some of the world’s most cherished characters, including classic Muppets like Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy and all of Sesame Street’s iconic residents, including Big Bird, Grover, Cookie Monster, and Bert and Ernie. Henson also directed beloved fantasy films like The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth.

Produced with the full participation and cooperation of the Henson family, “Jim Henson Idea Man” is an unprecedented, intimate look at Henson’s illustrious, revolutionary career and complex personal life. Using never-before-seen personal archival home movies, photographs, sketches, and Henson’s personal diaries, as well as interviews with those who knew him best, the film is the definitive portrait of one of the world’s most inspiring and iconoclastic creators.

The Original documentary will premiere May 31 on Disney+. Trust me, we'll be wide awake and front and center the minute it drops!
