The Muppets have had a field day with their parody trailers and now the final one before the film’s November 23 release date has arrived. This time out, Kermit and his cronies are taking stabs at Puss in Boots, Paranormal Activity 3 and Breaking Dawn.
Jason Segel has been charged with bringing The Muppets into the 21st century and judging by early trailers, he has done just that. We adore The Pig with the Froggy Tattoo and The Hangover parodies, but also the Being Green and romantic comedy riff with Green with Envy.
Movie Fanatic is wildly excited about this feature and cannot wait to interview the entire cast next week including Kermit and Miss Piggy! Stay tuned.
Here’s The Muppets' official synopsis:
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino house 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.
