The names Robert Rodriguez, Eddie Murphy, and Elton John don’t really go together. One’s a cult action director, the second an iconic comedian, and the third a musical legend. But thanks to the world of animation, there’s now a common link between the three.
During the 1990s, Steven Spielberg's animation studio was working on an adaptation of Andrew Lloyd Webber's mystical musical Cats. The movie fizzled out when the studio closed, which is a shame, because judging from this artwork, it would have looked spectacular.
Here's a question we never thought to ask: how would Andrew Lloyd Webber's rock opera about the life of Jesus play with the Muppets? Now we know, thanks to the Muppet Christ Superstar album, with Kermit as Jesus, Gonzo as Judas, Miss Piggy as Mary Magdalene, and a chorus of clucking proto-Christian chickens.
