The Full Muppets Trailer Arrives
Get ready for Muppet domination...

18 June 2011  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Film Stage

We’ve had a couple of clever parody trailers for The Muppets, but sooner or later it was going to be time for Kermit and co to deliver a real, honest batch of footage for their new film. Well, it turns out that sooner is actually this weekend, as the first full promo is now live and you can watch it below.

There’s not a load of plot crammed into this first real look at the movie, though the central idea of getting the felt gang back together (to help save their old theatre from the clutches of grasping oil baron Chris Cooper, in case you’d forgotten) is here, but what we do get is two minutes and 14 seconds of pure Muppet joy. A few pratfalls, some nice lines and Fozzie wearing fart shoes. Yes, the usual high-class offerings from the team, there.

And it’s nice to see that there’s a wide variety of the regular Muppet cast showing up for this one, alongside Jason Segel as Gary, Amy Adams as Mary and new character Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan.

If this doesn’t bring a smile to your face, you might want to check your pulse. It’ll be time to play the music and light the lights next February. But don’t forget that if you can’t wait that long, you’ll be able to get a unique opportunity to see footage and meet the characters at our Big Screen event running 12-14 August…

I possibly won't enjoy this one as much as Treasure Island or my all-time favourite, Christmas Carol, but it looks like a lot of good-natured fun and definitely fantastic for a laugh. Even though my evil boss is increasingly starting to resemble Miss Piggy... More
