New Muppet movie or not?
According to The Muppets' You Tube Channel, the brand new Muppet movie "The Muppets" is due for general release on 23 November 2011, just in time for the American Thanks Giving holiday.
Thirty-two years after the original 'Muppet Movie' was released in 1979, Disney have put out an extremely confusing trailer and it certainly doesn't appear to be the first. Last month, another trailer to 'Green with Envy' was released, which you can find here. Two people searching for love, but only finding 'The Muppets' looks like a rather sad let down for older Muppet fans.
According to the blurb "When Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater, they help Kermit reunite the Muppets to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theatre."
