Yes, it’s another trailer for The Muppets. But this time, the final movie trailer for James Bobin’s highly-anticipated Jason Segel/Nicholas Stoller-penned Muppets movie finally reveals what the film is actually about. It’s nothing surprising for those following every morsel and scrap from the project.
Basically: The Muppets have become Hollywood has-beens and there’s a sizable oil deposit sitting underneath the Muppet Theater. To save it from an evil oil baron (Chris Cooper) they have to raise $10 million, which Kermit plans to do by reuniting the old gang and staging “The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever” with some help from their biggest fans (Jason Segel and Amy Adams), a couple from Smalltown, USA.
Pretty basic plot, but totally inline with the original Muppet films. The Muppets, which stars, Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, a whole bunch of guest stars, and, of course, the Muppets, is set for wide release November 23.
