The Muppets join Google+ and release opening dance sequence

The Muppets (2011)

The Muppets (2011) posterIt’s (almost) time to start the music. YouTube’s  and DanceOn have released two new Muppet related videos. The first is letting us know all about the new Google+ Hangout that the Muppets have created, while the second clip is a full minute from the opening dance sequence.

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 this week, but embargoed a little longer than that. We promise to let you know all of our thoughts as soon as possible!

Join a Google+ Hangout with The Muppets today at 4:30pm PST/7:30pm EST at:

Disney’s The Muppets hits theaters this Thanksgiving! To celebrate, several of the stars will take part in a Google+ Hangout on their brand new profile — mostly because Miss Piggy insists on being in all of the important Circles.



The Muppets will be released on 23 November 2011 in the US and on 5 January 2012 in Australia from Disney.
