It’s not easy begin green, especially if you’re the carpet that saw the foot traffic of all of the Hollywood elite that came out yesterday afternoon in support of Disney’s The Muppets which held its world premiere at the historic El Captain Theater in Hollywood.
We are pleased to bring you just some of the action from yesterday in the following montage of clips which feature Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Rowlf, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Animal, Sweetums and Walter, the newest Muppet of all, as they made their way down the green carpet in specially modified vehicles (so they could all fit of course). The video also features interviews with co-star/co-writer Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Rashida Jones, Chris Cooper and celebrities such as Kristen Schaal, Neil Patrick Harris and Leslie Feist, along with songwriter Bret McKenzie. Also discussing the film at the premiere were Kermit, Miss Piggy and Walter, along with a special appearance (and critique) by Statler and Waldorf.
After the screening, guests headed over to a private affair over at the Hollywood and Highland Center where they were able to enjoy various Muppet related activities such as checking out the nail polish collection by OPI and participate in a Muppet craft event provided by Disney Store.
We hope to have some hi-res photos from the world premiere of The Muppets soon, so please check back!
