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.

While this isn't an official Disney piece, here's a great article in the New York Times about the reboot of the Muppets.

From the New York Times:

It’s Time for Your Face-Lift, Miss Piggy
By MICHAEL CIEPLY and BROOKS BARNES
Published: April 9, 2011

UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif

KERMIT THE FROG, perched on a log inside a soundstage here a few weeks ago, was pouring on the charm. None of those smart-mouthed, skewering asides. No prickly dismissals of Miss Piggy’s unwanted love.

The Green One was simply strumming his banjo in a digitally engineered rainstorm, crooning the words of his dreamy signature song — “someday we’ll find it, the rainbow connection ” — as if his professional life depended on it.

And it just might...

This is the Disney movie I'm most excited for this year, even with all their other great summer movies getting ready to be released. I love the Muppets and it's been awesome to see Disney gradually bring them back into the spotlight. Can't wait for this new movie! :)


And btw, Muppet Mindset is a great Muppety resource. They cover Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock in addition to the actual "Muppets," and have some pretty neat info about this upcoming film (spoiler alert, though).

Kermit also takes the opportunity to make a "not-so" subtle plug for his upcoming film.
