Report: The plot to the new “Muppets” movie is out and it’s disappointing…

The plot to the new “Muppets” movie is out, and I don’t really like it at all. I like the Muppets and I want them to have a good movie. After reading the plot, I’m already worried about this film, that we might get another shitty Muppet movie.

The plot is, the original Muppets: Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Animal, Gonzo, etc. have all retired to move on to new careers. Three new Muppets are introduced in the film and they go help find the original Muppets to reunite the gang. The movie will be taken place in Los Angeles. Probably around the Hollywood area, so expect a lot of celebrity cameos.

Read more on the story, here.

The only great Muppet movies were, “The Great Muppet Caper” and “The Muppets Take Manhatten”. They were excellent films, but the other ones were pretty crappy. I really hope this one will be good, but I don’t know. I’ll wait to see a trailer first, and then I’ll make my decision if I want to see it in theater or not.

Report: New “Muppet” movie to hit theaters next year in 2011 on Christmas Day…

Disney studios has greenlighted the new “Muppet” movie to hit theaters Dec. 25th of 2011. Even if the plot/synopsis has not yet been revealed, lets just hope it’s NOT another Christmas Muppets movie. We already had two of those. One of them was the Muppets remake of “A Christmas Carol” and the other was “Letters from Santa” the TV movie. Do we really need a third Muppets Christmas? Let’s hope it ain’t another Christmas film. I’m a huge fan of the Muppets by the way, always have been.

TV Review: “A Muppets Christmas – Letters to Santa”

Just finished watching the Muppets special on NBC titled “A Muppets Christmas – Letters to Santa”, here is my review.

Plot/synopsisThe Muppet characters wait in line at the Post Office in New York City waiting to mail their Christmas cards, later they realized they weren’t Christmas cards. They were actually letters to Santa Claus written by children. When the Muppets return back to their apartment building, Claire, a little girl who is friends with Gonzo, felt dissapointed when Gonzo reveals that the Muppets won’t be around for Christmas, they will be on vacation.

The Muppets then begin to realize that Christmas for children is more important than a vacation so to get into the Christmas spirit, they decide to help these children by delivering these letters to Santa Claus. They try everything they could to deliver these letters, then they have no choice but to travel to the North Pole and see Santa themselves.

It was actually very good and entertaining. I liked it a lot! They kept it old school Muppets the way it’s supposed to be!!! They brought every single Muppet character back in one entire hour! Yep, every single Muppet character besides the well known ones, they also brought back Sam the Eagle, The Swedish Chef, Beaker, Sweetums, Lew Zealand, Dr. Teeth, Janice, Zoot, Statler and Waldorf, etc. Yep, the whole gang is there.

Celebrity cameo appearances by Mayor Bloomberg, Whoopi Goldberg, Uma Thurman, etc.

The story was great, the songs were fun. It was a good show and a job well done!!! Bring on the new Muppet film for the big screen!!!

Score for “Letters to Santa” = *** (3 stars as in good)

Report: The Muppets return to TV this Wednesday night…

This Wednesday night at 8 p.m. on NBC, the peacock station will air ,”A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa”, which marks a huge return of the Muppets to TV. Will the show get strong ratings for this one? We’ll have to wait and see. I personally think this is a test to see if America still cares for the Muppets, since there is a new Muppet movie in the works.

I’ll indeed be watching since I love the Muppet characters and they deserve a huge comeback. The last few Muppet movies were terrible failures in the box office. Lets hope the new upcoming Muppet movie will live up to the “Great Muppet Caper” and “The Muppets Take Manhatten” which are the two best Muppet films.

Animal and Gonzo has always been my favorite characters out of the whole gang.

Does anyone out there enjoy the Muppets still? Sound it off in the comments below.

Report: Whoopi Goldberg to star in Christmas special Muppets TV show…

Actress, legendary standup comic, and current co-host of “The View” Whoopi Goldberg has signed on to star in the Muppets Christmas Eve TV show special “Letters to Santa – A Muppets Christmas”.

This is just a one off TV show of the Muppets, it is not to be confused with the new Disney Muppet film that Jason Segal and Nicholas Stoller are writing for the big screen.

The Muppets still rule the world.

Report: Interview with Jason Segel director of new “Muppets” movie…

There’s an interview with Jason Segel who is making the new “Muppets” movie for Walt Disney. Jason Segel reveals that every character from the Muppets is returning: Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, The Animal, Sam the Eagle, the Swedish Chef, Scooter, Mr. Waldorf, Statler, Zoot, Janice, Dr. Teeth, Sgt. Floyd Pepper, Beaker, Lew Zealand, Rizzo the rat, etc. Like he said, the whole gang!

He also said they plan to keep the new Muppet movie very traditional and similar to the first three “The Muppet Movie”, “The Great Muppet Caper” and “Muppets Take Manhatten”. In other words, the next Muppet movie will be a serious one, not a corny popcorn flick like Muppets going to Space or fighting against Pirates or something.

Sounding good so far. If it does live up to the first three, I’ll definitely see it in theater.

I’ve always been a big fan of the Muppets.
