Ok now you are just missing the point Hollywood, ALF movie to feature a CGI ALF.
The whole reason that show was well received is because ALF was a puppet in a sitcom. The shows appeal was how different of an idea it was at the time. Sure there was the Muppet Show but that was 90% puppets. ALF was the only puppet on his show.
So why the hell do we need a CGI ALF. Don’t you think we want to see the ALF we all remember. It will not be him.

Just when I thought puppets were so in right now, Sony’s big screen adaptation of 80s sitcom ALFstarts to come together, and they’re apparently planning to ditch the fuzzy star for a CG character.
At least that’s how it sounds when The Hollywood Reporter say:
Sony Pictures Animation has closed a deal to acquire rights to the classic 1980s TV sitcom ALF and will develop the property into a CG-live action hybrid feature.
Bad idea. At least 90% of the show’s appeal was in the puppet.
This is just stupid.
