Disney started promoting the upcoming film, ‘The Muppets’ with a series of Parody trailers that that riffed on romantic comedies, heist films and Green Lantern, but we thought that was over when they released the full feature trailer for the movie. Thankfully, a new trailer dropped this morning that not only gives some new footage of the film, but also pokes fun at another upcoming movie, ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’.
This might be the coolest parody trailer that they’ve dropped so far. There seems to be a lot of new imagery in the video, including a look at Niel Patrick Harris’ cameo in the film. Man, Thanksgiving can’t come soon enough!
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.
