It’s Time to Meet the Muppets (Trailer)

Posted 9 years ago by Movies

There’s a lot of movies for geeks to be excited about in 2011. Lots of superheroes are getting their first movies, the Harry Potter saga is coming to an end, and The Muppets are finally getting a new movie that looks like it’s at least trying to pay homage to the classic Muppets.

I haven’t posted any of the short viralish teasers that Disney’s released, partly because I’m trying to not repost things from other blogs as much, but mainly because I was waiting for the first full trailer.

I think it was worth the wait. The voices may not be the same, but it has that Muppet spirit. In case you’re still not convinced, here are some reasons why you should be excited:

  • Written by Jason Segal and Nicholas Stoller
  • Directed by James Bobin, co-creator of Flight of the Conchords
  • Zach Galifianakis as a hobo
  • All the other cameos
  • Original songs by Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords

What do you think? Are you going to line up with me to see it at midnight?
