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

    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 the frog was a special correspondent at the PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES premiere "red" (actually black) carpet on Saturday, May 7th at Disneyland.

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