First Look at ‘The Muppets’ Shows Some Familar Faces Hard At Work and Hardly Working

First it was called The Greatest Muppet Movie Of All Time, then it was awash in a world of no title, and now it seems to simply be called The Muppets. No matter, though. A Muppet Movie by any other name would still smell like Animal and still be the best ensemble cast of the year.

The rabid percussionist is drumming his brains out in this first promotional photo for the movie that won’t strike theaters until Christmas of next year, and for some reason, iProduct Placement has wriggled its way in as well.

It’s great to see Jason Segal, and it’s great to see all those familiar faces. Christmas 2011 can’t get here fast enough.

It’s nice to know that Fozzie is pitching a joke while no one’s listening, Rizzo is complaining about over time, and Beeker is solving world hunger from the third step of a ladder.

It looks like the script is coming along quite nicely. Plus, they’ve already got some music started, they’ve already lit the lights, and pretty soon it’ll be time to get things started.

What do you think?
