Trailer: ‘The Muppets’
Kermit and Miss Piggy are Coming Back to the Big Screen
Wednesday, May 25, 2011
More than a decade has passed since the Muppets have been on the big screen. Here's a look at their new movie due out at Thanksgiving.
Not sure if the Muppets, without creator the late Jim Henson, still have what it takes to make a sparkling feature film but I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt. The Muppets have delivered some delightful features and a smart TV show so I'm eager to see what they come up with this time out. What made their show and early films so much fun was that these puppets had as much -- and sometimes more -- personality as the celebrities they performed with.
This time out they must reunite to save their former studio (not Disney of course) from a greedy oil baron. There's an impressive list of stars making cameos including Emily Blunt, Danny Trejo, Neil Patrick Harris, Ricky Gervais, and more.
