Wolf Pack? No, the Fuzzy Pack… Muppets Style


You’ve got to admit, with two teasers now under their belt Walt Disney Pictures has been rather inventive with their promotion of The Muppets so far as the second teaser arrives today biting off the “Wolf Pack” idea from The Hangover and instead offering “The Fuzzy Pack”. If you missed the previous trailer for the faux film Green With Envy click here, but the newest one is directly below.

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and 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 The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever 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: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, The Muppets hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
