Last week,The Muppets focused their promotional energy on Facebook, with Miss Piggy urging fans to be part of the Muppet fan-athon and later devoting the page to Fozzie Bear telling bad jokes. This week, they’ve moved past social media and began promoting the movie in more traditional ways with four new posters. Hollywood.com got the first glimpse of the new posters, which include character posters of Kermit, Miss Piggy and Animal, and a group photo that features those three with Gonzo and Beaker thrown in as well. Check out the new posters below then head over to The Muppets page to watch all the promo videos they’ve been releasing.
Here’s the synopsis
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend 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 a telethon 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 tribute 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. With signature celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
