About damn time they made another Muppets movie, said the old man on a ledge, stroking his chin, waiting to heckle the stage below him.
In case you don’t read trade publications, which would make you 98% of the population, another Muppets movie has been in development for a long time – and it didn’t look like it would be made until Jason Segel provided a script necessary. What kind of adventure are they going to go on? There is not any kind of clear indicator in the trailer. In fact, the trailer appears to be purposely misleading to make you think that there are, in fact, no Muppets in the upcoming Muppets movie – until a clever reveal sets you straight, makes you squee with joy, and wonder what the hell is going on.
I will be in the opening line for this movie, with bells on. Possibly along with moppy hair, while pounding on whatever hard surface is nearby with drumsticks – not excluding heads. If you’ve ever enjoyed Muppets take Manhattan, The Muppets Christmas Carol, or any of the Muppets’ strangely prescient and solid specials that still hold up over repeated viewings – you should be making noises akin to Beaker right now.
