Your favorite felt creatures return in the full trailer for The Muppets

Jun. 18, 2011by: Dave Davis

After a handful of sly parody teasers, Jim Henson's beloved fabric beings THE MUPPETS arrive in a full preview. And judging by this brief look, the movie should thoroughly satisfy fans who love the colorful characters as much as star Jason Segel does. (It's also nice that they resisted the temptation to show the assured abundance of celebrity appearances, and just allowed the Muppets the spotlight.)

The synopsis: On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the worlds 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. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos,

THE MUPPETS make their way back to theaters on Nov. 23, 2011.

Oh no,

I'm positive about The Muppets, I think they're great. But I honestly hope this film is far funnier than that trailer.

Strange question...

Anybody else ever wonder why Scooter's twin sister from muppet babies was never in an actual muppet movie? I saw a robot chicken spoof on it, and it just got me wondering.

Never liked the Muppets, not even as a kid, so I have no interest.

I wanna' like this and I even giggled a little bit, but its probably not a good sign when the two minute trailer begins to drag.

I heard he was in this hardly at all for some reason. Apparently they wanted to stick to the 'original' muppets. But no pepe in the movie is a bad thing...

YES!!! The kids of this generation need this! They dont deserve a childhood of slutpiss and whoreshit! They deserve a childhood with mother-fuckin MUPPETS like the majority of us had! So glad Disney decided to bring them back! Long overdue, but better that than never.

Hell Yeah!

Watching this trailer made me realize how much I miss the muppets. I can't wait to see this. Until then, I'm off to watch all their other movies again.

Gotta admit i was really worried about this one, but this trailer alleviated a lot of those worries. i should've known better that Jason Segel wouldn't let me down.

Looks very funny, and has a bunch of great cameos. Plus there is a Toy Story short film before it-can't go wrong. Should be fun. (Possibly a Christmas themed one?)
