First Image: ‘The Muppets’ Movie Featuring New Muppet Walter
Although the image has been introduced exclusively in the current issue of Entertainment Weekly, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with this version of the complete image that has no text overlaid on top of it as it appears in the magazine.
Written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, The Muppets (formerly The Greatest Movie Ever Made or The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made) was first confirmed at the Disney D23 Expo in 2009 during then-chairman Dick Cook’s Studios presentation. The film focuses on a Muppet lover and his puppet Walter who set out to thwart the evil plans of an exaggerated villain (at least according to an early draft of the script we acquired).
The film is slated to be released in theaters nationwide on Christmas (December 25), 2011.
