Disney’s ‘The Muppets’ Official Synopsis Released

Jason Segel in Disney's 'The Muppets'Walt Disney Studios has provided us with the official synopsis for its upcoming Thanksgiving 2011 release, The Muppets, starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and — of course — the Muppets, featuring newcomer Walter.

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 house 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.

  1. Jeez what a disappointment. That plot sounds like an exact rehash of The Muppets take Manhattan.

    Why should I pay to see something I can watch on Youtube for free?

    • It actually had reminded me much more of the plot of It’s a Very Merry
      Muppet Christmas Movie when I read an early draft of it
