    I agree with this.

    I've absolutely never given or encouraged others to give blind support, however I start from a place of optimism. I just can't understand a lover of the Muppets starting with pessimism or a chronic skepticism as their default position. IE - it's gonna suck unless I see something indicating otherwise. There was another poster on this thread that came from that point of view and it's one that's very popular around the web among people who like the Muppets, but haven't necessarily followed their history as closely like most of us here.

    Disney has been handling the Muppet remarkably well lately and I don't see them doing any better at the Henson Company seeing how difficult time the've had with the Fraggle and Dark Crystal movie projects. Even though the Disney Muppet history is spotty - - all current signs point to a comprehensive and methodical plan for positive growth. It appears to be all green lights for Kermit the Frog and company. I'd rather hope that's going to be the case then pick apart imaginary reasons of what could go wrong. That's just how my brain works. :)

    They aren't "haters," they are fans, just as much as you are. And you're both entitled to your opinions. ; )

    But anyway, the teaser has convinced me to suggest to my friend that we should see the movie, so that's a positive start! ;)

    I am JUST now getting the joke of the humans' names. Gary and Mary? Heheheheheh ... someone likes fanfiction tropes.

    The more I watch the trailer, the more I could kick myself for not thinking of the Muppets earlier than the "bait and switch". I mean, there's a CAR in the classroom. "Oh, I'm sorry, I can only take you as far as your class." The ample use of Kermit green, Mary wearing a dress with pink and Piggy glove-purple, Gary standing in a doorway that is obviously backstage at the Muppet Theater ... grrrr ... I should learn to be more observant. :)

    That is an IMDB listing, however, and should be taken with a grain of salt. For example:

    Peter Linz ... Walter (voice)

    That said, this trailer made me grin so widely that the top of my head was in danger of sliding off. I was also happy to see lots of my friends sharing it on Facebook. I'm so looking forward to this movie, and will be lapping up any previews and sneak peeks we get.

    I wouldn't give IMDB much (ahem) credit at this point. It's practically become a tradition by now that whenever a new Muppet project is in the can but waiting to air, a cast breakdown/performer listing pops up on IMDB and it's based on speculation and guesswork as opposed to actual knowledge.

    ...and indeed, looking at the current listing, it appears to be 1/3 stuff gleaned from press reports, 1/3 extras putting themselves up to gain an imdb credential, and 1/3 speculative fan fiction (The Brian Henson as Sal Manilla / Robin the Frog / Crazy Harry/ Pops The Newsman / Ma Bear / Dr. Van Neuter is a pretty fair giveaway that this is not gospel!)

    I showed this trailer to several people at work. Most grinned widely when they got to the third name in the cast list. Heh!
