There's no way we're not going to see the new 'Muppets' movie. It's been ages since we've seen Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo and the rest of the gang on the big screen; at this point, we're just counting down the days until Nov. 23, when we can be the first ones in the theater. It will feel so good to see the Muppets as stars of a big motion picture one more time, and so anybody else involved in this production is just gravy. Jason Segel? He's just gravy. Amy Adams? She's gravy too. Jane Lynch, Danny Trejo and Donald Glover? It's all just a big pile of messy gravy on the Muppet main course.
But the latest stars attached to the Muppets' return are liable to push us into some kind of anticipation overload -- and continuing the gravy metaphor, make us already feel like we're going to pass out after a big Thanksgiving dinner. Joining the Muppets movie adventure will be none other than the toys of 'Toy Story.'
We already told you about the first 'Toy Story' short to premiere in front of 'Cars 2,' featuring Ken and Barbie in a Hawaiian-style adventure. Now BleedingCool reports that 'The Muppets' will be the second movie to premiere with a 'Toy Story' short in front of it.
The news came from a Disney investors' meeting yesterday, where stockholders were able to see the first short a few months early. No other details were provided about what we can expect, so for now, we'll just have to settle for out-of-control fan speculation.
What direction would you like to see the 'Toy Story' shorts go in?
