Disney Movies Anywhere Debuts Disney Drive-On with the Muppets

Yesterday, Disney’s cloud-based digital movie service Disney Movies Anywhere launched a new six-part original series titled “Disney Drive-On with The Muppets,” which brings everything you’ve come to love and expect from The Muppets, along with a bunch of cool celebrity cameos. The series will run for a limited time, with two new episodes being released every Friday.

DMA’s official description of Disney Drive-On with the Muppets:

After being left in charge of the Muppets’ office by Kermit, Pepe the King Prawn takes on the responsibility of “mentoring” Walter on the business of Hollywood. Still considered the “new guy” with the Muppets, Walter is given low-level jobs working alongside his fellow Muppets at their office in the famed Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. He quickly learns there is a lot more to making movies than he thought! Developing projects may not always be so glamorous, but Walter is still excited to tackle new challenges, and discovers life on the Disney Lot is certainly a fun and funny adventure.

New Clip From Muppets Most Wanted: The Evil Plan

A new clip from the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted has just been released, titled “The Evil Plan.” The title is fairly self-explanatory: it’s about a plan that is evil. As for whose plan it is, it’s from the appropriately named movie villain Dominic Badguy, played by comedian Ricky Gervais. But what’s surprising is who his co-conspirator is.

New Muppets Most Wanted Clip Features Ricky Gervais

A new clip has just been released for the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted, featuring the not-so-subtly-named character Dominic Badguy, played by comedian Ricky Gervais. In the movie, Dominic Badguy is interested in representing the Muppets worldwide, and while most of the Muppets are excited at the idea, Kermit the Frog himself isn’t so sure that they should be agreeing to the arrangement.

Review: The Muppets on DVD and Blu Ray

There’s really no sense preaching to the choir. If you grew up with the Muppets, or if you’re a younger fan who went through old episodes using the magic of the internet, I won’t be able to say anything that you don’t already know (or know better), the Muppets are the Muppets in the movie, and you’re going to be happy with the DVD. But what if you’re like me, who was already alive during the Muppets’ heyday and watched an episode or two but wasn’t a fan? Will you enjoy the movie?

Disney and Pixar’s Toy Story Small Fry joins Jim Henson’s The Muppets

On November 23rd, the Muppets will finally make their return to the big screen, ready to impress the legions of old fans and a world of new ones. The Disney mascots wont be traveling alone, however, as the film will be joined by a brand new Toy Story short, entitled Small Fry. When Cars 2 hit theaters a few months back, movie goers were also greeted with a short from the Toy Story universe, and the appearance of another has us hoping Pixar really could do a Toy Story 4 someday. But, more importantly, getting proper placement with the Muppets is quite an honor. The recent D23 Expo 2011 not only made special mention of this pairing, but also offered a beautiful tribute to Jim Henson, as Rowlf and Kermit paired to sing the famed Rainbow Connection. Check out the video.

In this latest Muppets revival boom, as we inch our way closer to November’s new Muppets movie, we simply can’t get enough of the whole world folks like Jim Henson created. Apparently, we’re not alone, as many of the music industry’s biggest stars have gotten together to release a brand new record, Muppets: The Green Album. Hitting stores on August 23rd, the record will feature 12 classic Muppet songs, revised and recrafted by current bands and artists, like Weezer, OK Go, The Fray, and more. The film, now appropriately dubbed The Muppets, hits on November 22nd, so this musical experience will have to hold us over until then. Take a look at the full track list!
