An as-yet untitled documentary covering the life and career of Jim Henson is in the works by Imagine Documentaries for Disney Television under the "Disney Original Documentary" banner.

Ron Howard is set to direct the film "with the full participation and cooperation of the Henson family" using never before seen archival material and notes from Henson's journal.[1]

The film is being produced under the "Disney Original Documentary" banner which largely produces and acquires content for Disney+ as well as other Disney-owned channels and outlets. At the time of the initial announcement, the final distribution plan was not known, although a release on Disney+ is likely.

In addition to Howard, Imagine Documentaries' Brian Grazer, Sara Bernstein, Justin Wilkes, and Margaret Bodde will serve as producers, with Michael Rosenberg and Marjon Javadi as executive producers. Also attached are Mark Monroe as writer-producer and Paul Crowder as editor-executive producer.[1]
