The new Muppet’s movie official promo pic

19 January 2011


How excited are we for the new Muppet's movie, which has thus far been dubbed with the working title, Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made, the answer is very! So imagine our excitement when we discover the official promo pic of Jason Segal, along with Kermit, Miss Piggy, Bunsen and his assistant Beaker in what looks like a run down Muppet studio, pouring over a script.

The film is still untitled but the plot is roughly the original Muppet crew who must gather together to put a show on to save an old theater. Possibly the original theater from The Muppet Show. Apparently an evil character wants to tear the place down to get to the oil underneath. Hmm could there be a slight political undertone here? Either way Segal has spoke about how he wants to take The Muppet's back to their roots, telling Slash Film: 

"I’ve just grown a little disappointed with ‘Muppets in the Old West,’ ‘Muppets Under Water,’ and all these weird concept movies. I just want to go take it back to the early 80′s, when it was about the Muppet's trying to put on a show."

Segal will be helped out on his Muppet Mission with a fantastic list of Cameo's from Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Alan Arkin, Jack Black, Billy Crystal, Zach Galifianakis, Kathy Griffin, Ricky Gervais, Emily Blunt, and Jean-Claude Van-Damme to name but a few, and Flight of the Conchord's James Bobin is directing, and will have its UK release in November this year.
