Muppets and Knives Out crossover

In a recent video interview posted on Netflix Tudum, Rian Johnson opened up about a crossover between Knives Out and the Muppets. Glass Onion, the second chapter of the Knives Out saga, has just arrived on Netflix and is achieving enormous success. Rian Johnson, director and screenwriter is already thinking about the future of the saga. 

Muppets and Knives Out crossover

The director of Star Wars: The Last Jedi said he had given some serious thought about the possible crossover between Knives Out and the Muppets. 

“It’s a joke that I thought was pretty brilliant, and I ended up giving it some serious thought. As much as I take the murder mystery genre seriously, I take the genre of a Muppet movie seriously. I think those two things have very different rules. You can either have a Benoit Blanc mystery that has Muppets in it, but they’ll feel out of place. Or you can have a Muppet movie that Benoit Blanc is in, but it’ll feel like a Muppet movie.”

Rian Johnson said they do not want to compromise either of the franchise: “I wouldn’t want to compromise either of them. And I feel like in order to make it well and make it work, you’d have to make a choice and compromise one or the other. If I ever make a Muppet movie, I just want to make a great Muppet movie.”

In the cast of Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery, alongside the protagonist Daniel Craig are Dave Bautista, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Jessica Henwick, Madelyn Cline, Kathryn Hahn, Leslie Odom Jr., and Janelle Monáe.
