Muppets to Guest Star on GOOD LUCK CHARLIE & Disney Infinity Could Add Star Wars, Marvel Characters!

Season four of Disney Channel's hit family comedy GOOD LUCK CHARLIE, premieres SUNDAY, APRIL 28 (7:30-8:00 p.m. ET/PT) with a special performance by Disney's The Muppets. Guest stars Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Animal join series stars Bridgit Mendler and Leigh-Allyn Baker to perform a show-stopping, Muppet-ational original song, "Dream House."

In the premiere episode, the Duncan Family decides to build their dream house after the family home is devastated by termites. Everyone, with the exception of Charlie, is excited at the prospect of a new and larger home. However, Teddy has a change of heart after a dream in which Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and Animal convince her that the old family home is really the house of her dreams.

In Season Four of the Emmy Award-nominated family sitcom "Good Luck Charlie," the Duncan Family decide to build their dream house after the family home is devastated by termites. Now a family of seven, the Duncans are busy juggling careers, college, high school, preschool, friends, baby bottles and diapers.

And - Star Wars and Marvel characters could come to Disney Infinity. In a recent interview, Disney Interactive VP of product development Bill Roper explained that the studio is interested in possibly exploring every license available to them.
“I think the beauty of something like Infinity is that it's a platform that we're building,” Roper told Games industry International. “So we don't try to be coy about it. We've done a lot of work about identifying the properties that we felt would really make the platform sing at launch, but I never discount any possibilities with the vast array of characters and worlds that we can tap into across the company.”
Speaking specifically about Star Wars, Roper said it “was definitely exciting when that [news of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm] came down from within the company. We love the potential for Infinity. We always joke, well, 'the possibilities are infinite.’ For us, we're really just focused on launching this platform quickly. We've got incredible IPs, and we're showing the strength of what we're building with the way we've approached the creative, where everything in the game world is toys, so we can have a Jack Sparrow next to Sully and it makes sense."
Disney Infinity involves using real-life figures and scanning them in order to use the characters in-game. It’s due to arrive on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U, Wii, PC and 3DS on August 18th. So far, confirmed franchises include The Incredibles, Monsters Inc., Cars and Pirates of the Caribbean.
