    New Information on the Upcoming Muppets Film





    Disney has released the following information on the upcoming Muppets film. Sounds like classic Muppet fun.

    When Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater, they help Kermit reunite the Muppets to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater.

    U.S. Release Date: November 23, 2011


    Cast: Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, Animal, Jason


    Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and Walter

    Director: James Bobin
    Producers: David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman
    Executive Producers: Jason Segel, Nicholas Stoller, Martin G. Baker
    Writers: Jason Segel, Nicholas Stoller


    Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.


    Notes:


    • Funnyman Jason Segel (TV’s “How I Met Your Mother,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”) stars in, co-writes and executive produces “The Muppets.”
    • The Muppets” is directed by James Bobin, who was a director/writer/EP for HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords.”
    • Kermit received a star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2002. His song “The Rainbow Connection” was nominated for an Academy Award®.
    • Bret McKenzie, who starred in, wrote for and served as composer for HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords,” is the music supervisor for “The Muppets,” as well as the writer/producer on some of the songs, which include big Muppet-style opening and closing numbers.
    • It’s been 11 years since the Muppets’ last big-screen feature film.


    Well folks, what do you think? Sound like a good reboot for the Muppets franchise? Would love to hear your thoughts.

    To me, it sounds like a fun romp and any excuse to have the Muppets get the old act back together is welcome news indeed.

    I'm really looking forward to this one. It seems much more akin to the first, great Muppet movies as opposed to the characters playing someone else.

    Thanks Dusty for giving us this info. I too look forward into going to see this Muppets Movie. Good to know that it's coming late this year. I also will add that it's on my mother's birthday too. Perfect way to remember it.

    Re: New Information on the Upcoming Muppets Film

    I have been ecstatic since I first heard that they were planning on making a new one. When I went to the midnight showing of Pirates last night, they showed a trailer of it. It didn't show the Muppets very much but it was the first trailer I'd seen. I'm extremely looking forward to this movie.

    Re: New Information on the Upcoming Muppets Film

    What geeks me out is Jason Segel is a HUGE Muppet fan. He flat out said in a KTLA interview this was his dream (along with some weird stuff he used to do on dates with puppets). So that gets me excited for this. You want someone who "gets" the Muppets to do the movie.

    Re: New Information on the Upcoming Muppets Film

    Probably the one film I'm most looking forward to all year. It may be blasphemous to say here on MC, but I'm actually a much bigger fan of all things Henson than I am of all things Disney. Sadly, their adventures during the last decade or two since Jim's death (not to mention the deaths or retirements of other key members of the team) have not lived up to their legacy. Somewhere along the way what made the Muppets so magical got lost. That magic comes from the fact that there's something for everyone in Henson's creations, from small children to adults. Even now, as I watch my DVDs of the classic films and television shows Henson made in the 70's & 80's there are really amazing moments that blow me away.

    From everything I has seen and heard, including reports from a friend that actually met him, Jason Segel is as big or bigger a fan than I am. As a fan of his in general, and knowing how much he loves these characters I have the utmost faith that he's bringing some of the magic back the the Muppets, and I hope that it's only the beginning of a resurgence for them.

    Other than Harry Potter, this is my most anticipated movie of the year.

    Didn't want to ruin the joke (like D23 did), but a GREAT viral marketing campaign ...

    Can't wait!!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
