Disney has released a number of fake and parody trailers for The Muppets, but now they’ve finally unleashed a pretty legit one. It looks good. Two thoughts, though:
1) I haven’t really been following The Muppets since Jim Henson’s death (ie, I never saw Muppets Treasure Island or any of that stuff), so I found the new Kermit voice a touch distracting. I guess I’ll get used to it, though.
2) There remains A LOT of Jason Segel and Amy Adams in this trailer. Too much, I’d say. I don’t want a Muppets movie where Jason Segel is in every frame. I understand that some studio execs, worried about the aging of the Muppets brand, may have felt the need to get a human ‘star’ in there, but this definitely makes me unhappy.
