YES!!!! Spike Jones and Jim Henson Studios!

And, yes, the monsters are incorporating some motion capture (the same technology used for Beowulf/Polar Express/Gollum. I can't wait to see how they pull it off and push that format to do something beyond just realism.

Though, I can't back that up with any info on the internet, only what my classmates told me after they took a studio tour there.

I read that they are gonna have actors wear the monster suits and then CGI the faces of the monsters... or something like that. I'll try to find the article and e-mail it to you.

But since you mentioned Jim Henson, those puppets totally look Henson-like. Especially the way the fur/hair looks. Reminds me of the Muppets.
