Muppet Movie Poster Released
May 19, 2011

Muppets movie poster

Disney has released the first poster (shown here, click for bigger) for The Muppets, the movie relaunch (11 years since the last one!) due out November 23. Here’s the plot, from the press release:

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel, movie co-writer) 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.

How have I not heard about this yet?! My nephew’s too young for the theatre, but maybe I can borrow a friend’s kids… Nostalgia time!

Oh, it’s still early yet — this is going to be a Thanksgiving release, and we’ve got the summer movie season to get through first. But yeah, I’m eager to see it as well!
