Jim Henson’s fuzzy felt creatures are back in THE MUPPETS directed by James Bobin (FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS , DA ALI G SHOW) and written by real-life fan Jason Segel (FORGETTING SARAH MARSHALL, FREAKS AND GEEKS) who also happens to have a starring role alongside Amy Adams (THE FIGHTER, ENCHANTED) and Chris Cooper (AMERICAN BEAUTY, ADAPTATION).
I am a lifelong fan of The Muppets and am extremely excited to have them back on the big screen again! I can’t wait to see what cameos appear in this movie and I am glad this trailer does not spoil any of the guests to appear. Check out the full synopsis and trailer below!
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.
THE MUPPETS hit theaters November 23rd 2011.
