ABC’s upcoming Muppets mockumentary series only had so much to show at its recent Comic-Con 2015 panel, but with an actual premiere as far away as September, Kermit, Ms. Piggy, Gonzo and the gang dug deep for a special preview. Check out the 10-minute presentation that convinced ABC to make a new Muppets series!
I admit I was a big fan of the Muppets and the original TV Series. It was downright funny! Well the original Muppets are back on ABC with a few new members. It's a show that's a bit Office Space/Park's & Recreation, meaning it takes on a bit of a reality show feel...
Before he was a CGI creation, Jedi master Yoda was a puppet. Before green screens became the norm, the Dagobah set for ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ was built elevated off the ground to accommodate Yoda’s puppeteers. And before he brought Yoda to life, puppeteer and voice actor Frank Oz was best known as the man behind Miss Piggy. In a weird way, that makes the most wizened character in the ‘Star Wars’ universe a distant relative of the extended Muppet family.
Disney joined in on the game day fun by premiering a 'Muppets Most Wanted' Super Bowl trailer, which takes a note from its previous trailers by debuting a sampling of Twitter reviews for similar comedic effect. So, ready to hear what @KevKoast315 has to say about the new movie?
Jim Henson is the name that most people associate with The Muppets. But as they say, "behind every successful man is a woman." That woman for Jim Henson was his wife, Jane Henson. Yesterday she passed away at 78 years old.
