Sure, the trailers that have been released for the new Muppet movie thus far have been pretty amazing– Green Lantern parody? The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo spoof? I’ll take ‘em!– but you know the one thing that they HAVEN’T really done all that well yet? They haven’t really told us what the movie is actually going to be ABOUT.
But, hey guess what? There’s a new trailer out! And it actually deals with the plot of the movie! Let’s take a look, shall we?
So as best as I can tell, Amy Adams and Jason Segel are the Muppets’ biggest fans. They’ve planned a big trip to L.A. specifically to go crash Muppet Studios. They also appear to have a Muppet of some kind with them– his name, it appears, is Walter– though it is unclear whether they found him at Muppet Studios or whether he’s a lone Muppet that they befriended earlier and brought with them. And then, when they finally GET to Muppet Studios, something magical happens: Kermit appears! Hoorah! But the Muppets, you see, need Amy and Jason’s help. They want to get back into show business– but the problem is, they’re not famous anymore. What to do? Why, build your way back to the top, of course! Backstage farce? Feel-good, life-affirming drama? Who knows. But there will be chickens. There will be explosions. There will be amazing, unexpected cameos. And I CAN’T WAIT.
