The Muppets are getting a 21st Century make-over courtesy of Jason Segal. Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and the rest of the Muppets return to the big screen and the teaser trailer for Disney's THE MUPPETS has finally arrived.
"How I Met Your Mother" and Forgetting Sarah Marshall star Jason Segel not only stars in the movie but he also co-wrote and executive produced THE MUPPETS.
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's 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” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
Celebrity cameos include Donald Glover, Leslie Feist, Mickey Rooney, Alan Arkin, Rob Corddry, Dave Grohl, Kristen Schaal, Ricky Gervais, Kathy Griffin, Billy Crystal, Ken Jeong, Sarah Hyland, Sterling Knight, Neil Patrick Harris, Whoopi Goldberg, James Carville, Rico Rodriguez, Selena Gomez, Danny Trejo, Wanda Sykes, Judd Hirsh, John Krasinski and Jim Parsons.
