It is very unlike the muppets will ever be seen at TDR for several reasons... OLC runs the show, not Disney who is the owner of the Muppets now as far as I know. The japanese public does know the muppets quite well... but there is no connection to those characters and Disney in Japan..at least in the minds of the consumers. Also, the Muppets do not have that "je ne sais quai" cute-factor that is exploited by OLC in regards to the Disney brand. In fact, the muppets would look way out of place at TDR, especially because the muppets fit more into a "studio type" park, over TDL or TDS. Lastly... Universal Studios Japan in Osaka already feature the Sesame Street characters in a HUGE way...including a 3D film, some live shows as well as walk around characters.. The Sesame Street and Muppet characters are basically cut from the same cloth so to speak... I do not believe OLC would like to offer a product that is too similar to what Universal Japan is offering. That is only my opinion but I dare say the Muppets will never come to TDR. Personally...I would prefer TDR to stay "Muppets-free".
