After three parody trailers of varying degrees of success (took me a while to even realise what The Fuzzy Pack was riffing on!) THE MUPPETS finally get a genuine trailer. Check it out...
Probably being over sensitive about this, but I really didn't like the presence of 'fart humour' there - The Muppets are above that. Otherwise I'd say it looks like Jason Segal and co have managed to replicate that joyous Muppet vibe of old.
Disney will release THE MUPPETS on the 23rd of November Stateside, January across European territories, and finally February 17th in the UK (by which time we'll already have learnt whether the movie was a hit or miss). It's odd that the UK appears to be somewhat of an afterthought considering the country was the first to commission and air THE MUPPET SHOW itself. Bit annoying that.
Offended by Fart Shoes too? Can the film capture that Muppet magic? Will kids raised on a diet of CG animation embrace the felt and strings lo-tech look? Let us know in the comments below!
