Between the Muppets, Sesame Street, and fantasy films like The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, there’s a good chance Jim Henson played a key part in your childhood. Want to know more about the man behind the puppets? Check out the first trailer for the upcoming Disney+ documentary Jim Henson Idea Man, which dives deep into Henson’s storied life and career.

Directed by Ron Howard, Jim Henson Idea Man uses Henson’s archival, never-before-seen home videos and sketches to create an in-depth portrait of the beloved puppeteer. The documentary’s trailer features behind-the-scenes footage from his best-known work, as well as interviews with Frank Oz, Jennifer Connelly, Rita Moreno, and Henson’s children. Oh, and it’s all set to Kermit the Frog’s “Rainbow Connection,” so you may want to have some tissues handy.

Jim Henson Idea Man premieres May 31 on Disney+.
