Walt Disney Pictures is reuniting “The Muppets” for its new film hitting theatres on November 23 and they’ve released a new teaser poster featuring Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Animal (!).
The Disney film is the first theatrically released movie from the plush heroes in 11 years (since we believe “Muppets in Space”?) “How I Met Your Mother” star Jason Segal stars in, co-writes and executive produces their return to the big screen, which is directed by James Bobin (HBO’s “Flight of the Conchords”)
Here’s the official description for the film:
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 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.
Doesn’t Miss Piggy look fab?
