Would a Maguy reunion disappoint people?

Although no original episodes have been shot since, it has remained a regular feature on many station's schedules. But Thibault said he's not sure if Maguy would work today. “I don't want to see old Georges Boissier,” he told a journalist (Thibault turned 93 in August). “Everyone’s going to have different vision of what the character is like, so to have that materialize is going to disappoint most people,” he added.

Still hoping for a Maguy movie?

In a recent interview, Marthe Villalonga said she can't imagine a Maguy reunion hitting the big screen. “I'd rather people go, ‘Oh, please! Please!’ than ‘I can't believe you did that. It was horrible.’”

Co-star Henri Garcin (who played Pierre Bretteville) has also previously explained, “It would be terrible to do something and have it not be good,”. “It was so terrific ... If we did a Maguy movie and it sucked, then it would, you know, blemish it.”

On the subject of whether there could be a Maguy film, Jean-Marc Thibault stated : “I think it's a bit of a case of ‘the book is better than the movie’.”
