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.

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.

Anxious for Disney to return The Muppets to the big screen? Well, apparently, so is Disney! The House of Mouse has bumped up the upcoming Muppet film a full month, from December 25th to it’s new date, November 23rd. Though Christmas day films have a history of some solid success, those of us (all of us!) so incredibly excited to see the Jim Henson characters have a lot of thanks to give for the Thanksgiving weekend special. Tentatively dubbed The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made (or even The Greatest Muppet Movie of All Time) the Muppet Movie focuses on Kermit the Frog and the new co-star Walter as they put on a show to save their old theater. Hopefully, the new creative team (Jason Segel, James Bobin, Nick Stoller, and Bret McKenzie) wont offer any trouble to Miss Piggy. We’ll find out November 23, 2011!

Hey, puppets are considered a form of animation – thus, so are Muppets! Besides, who wouldn’t want to hear more about all our lovable pals, from Kermit to Miss Piggy? Not only has the group had multiple television shows and several already existing theatrical releases, the Disney-owned property created by Jim Henson also had an animated run in the 80s with the cartoon “Muppet Babies”. But that aside, as MightyGeek began reporting a few weeks back, progress on the upcoming film, tentnatively titled The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made, set to open on December 25th, 2011, has begun to speed up, with the first shots already being released to the press – which ToonBarn is happy to be part of 🙂 Check them out!
