Disney has released 3 new clips from The Muppets via YouTube’s MuppetsStudio, and it is almost upon us. Unless, of course, you live in Australia where there is a painful wait until January 2012.
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend 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 a telethon 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.
We’ll be seeing this next week, but embargoed a little longer than that. Still, from the look of these clips, it seems as though we are in safe hands.
The Muppets will be released on 23 November 2011 in the US and on 5 January 2012 in Australia from Disney.
