Strange First Teaser Trailer For ‘The Muppets’ Released Online

Over the weekend, many of you who ventured out to see Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides were treated to the very first teaser trailer for Disney’s new Muppet movie…fittingly titled The Muppets, of course.

The thing about the teaser trailer is that it was made to try and surprise people. It’s presented as a fairly awful looking new romance movie starring Amy Adams and Jason Segel called Green With Envy, and this faux trailer goes on for a quite a while before they spring the trap on us and reveal what the movie actually is.

You can see the sneaky trick trailer for The Muppets by clicking on over to the other side now. The movie hits theaters on November 23, 2011.

Stars either starring or doing voice work on the movie include Segel, Amy Adams, John Krasinski, Zach Galifianakis, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, and pretty much everyone else.

Torchwood + Lightsabers + Puppets = Your WTF Geek Pic Of The Day

Torchwood with Avenue QThe other night, after Tom Cheredar and I finished recording TARDISblend 17, we were talking about some random Doctor Who stuff off-air. One of the things that came up in our ridiculous ramblings was, “What Doctor Who needs is some Muppets.”

It was just a mildly amusing joke at the time, but a couple days later we came across this unexplainable image posted over at the Hell Yeah Tumblr Page featuring the cast of Torchwood meeting the puppets from Avenue Q… with lightsabers! See the image here at right.

Quite simply? This is awesome. The next step is someone to Photoshop in the glow from the lightsabers.

‘Flight Of The Conchords’ & Borat Co-Creator James Bobin To Bring Us Sweet Muppet Action

Muppets

It’s no secret that Jim Henson‘s Muppet army is raring up to make a big comeback. In March of ’08 we found out that Forgetting Sarah Marshall duo Jason Segel and Nick Stoller would be writing a new Muppet movie for Disney.

After that, we also found out that a slew of other plans were in motion as well, including TV specials, merchandise, and music albums. In case you missed it, you can catch up on all Muppet plans here and now (Read: It’s Not Meat, It’s Not Puppets … It’s The Muppets & They’re Coming Back Big!).

At the time, it sounded like Segel and Stoller would actually be handling the directing duties of the movie as well — we knew that they could pull it off after seeing their work with the Henson-made Dracula puppet and their song “Dracula’s Lament” — but that’s not the case. It’s being reported that James Bobin, who co-created the popular HBO series Flight of the Conchords and helped Sascha Baron Cohen to create his multiple personalities — including Ali G, Borat, and Bruno — has now been brought in to helm the next Muppet movie.

Jason Segel Performs ‘Forgetting Sarah Marshall’ Dracula Song

Dracula's Lament

If you’ve seen the comedy Forgetting Sarah Marshall, then you know the fantastic scene where star Jason Segel performs his song “Dracula’s Lament” in a bar in Hawaii. He also performs a big budget presentation of it later in the film. While appearing on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson recently, Segel actually performed the same song with a Dracula puppet in (or on) hand. If you’re a fan of the movie and this oddly catchy tune, you will definitely want to check this out.

Around the time that Sarah Marshall was on the way, we discovered that Segel and friend and writer Nick Stoller would be writing, directing, and starring in The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made for Walt Disney Studios. This is obviously exciting because it’s new Muppets, but also because we can see here that Segel is good with them!

Click on over to other side to watch the video, and if you haven’t seen it, it helps to go to YouTube or rent the movie first and check out the original performances to get a feel for this seriously silly song.

Muppets

If you got the reference in the title, you’re awesome and we’re putting you right up on the fridge.

Many of us cool kids are children of the ’80s, and as such, one of the greatest forms of entertainment ever to be created, is the Muppets. The Muppets are a creation of the late genius Jim Henson, who built an army of funny and lovable puppet characters who appeared in a countless amount of TV shows, specials, movies, music videos, cartoons, and everything in between. As life moved on and new generations of kids showed up, the Muppets faded off slowly, but never completely disappeared, making delightful cameo appearances on shows and events from time to time. But now, thanks to the massive Disney D23 Expo, we’ve learned that the Muppets are coming back in a big way, and their ready to take over the world again!

Back in March of 2008, we learned that we would finally be getting a brand new Muppet movie, with Forgetting Sarah Marshall team Jason Segel and Nick Stoller joining the Jim Henson Company to write and direct a new movie. Not much else had been known about the project since that time, but Coming Soon was on hand at the Disney Expo and they passed along word that a title for this movie has been made official: The Cheapest Muppet Movie Ever Made.
