Discussion in 'Muppet Headlines' started by theprawncracker, Nov 11, 2011.
I thought I saw an interview which said it was only 50 Muppets in the finale. I hope that was wrong.
Some sources, such as this June 2011 article from ComingSoon.net (http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=78752), mentioned that there's 150 Muppets altogether in the finale of the new movie. To quote a paragraph from that article:
Maybe Segel meant that there were only 50 of the Muppets directly in front of him at a particular moment.
I also seem to recall hearing another interview somewhere with Kermit, where he said that there were hundreds of Muppets present.
From the video and images we've seen of the group in that finale, it is definitely not 150 characters.
Or someone could ask him what he knew about the Clifford appearance. He might have just been told about Clifford being there. But somehow I think it might be best to wait until after the movie's official release to ask him. I wonder what the terms are regarding performers and professionals discussing "spoilers" or other things they aren't allowed to discuss until movie releases.
Part of me wonders if maybe Clifford had a scene, with someone else performing and Clash being planned to dub the voice later, and then them being unable to work his schedule and cutting the scene as a result. I hope we can learn the deal soon enough.
Here's hoping the DVD release has a satisfying amount of bonus features, revealing everything we want to know.
I feel the same way. With this new movie being the great Muppet comeback that it is, it would only be right to put substantial amounts of extras on the DVD. One feature I'd like to see is the tape that Jason Segel and Kermit put together to ask Amy Adams to come be in the movie.
On a sidenote, another thing I look forward to doing on the DVD is being able to pause certain scenes, zoom in and seek out any obscure characters that we might not be able to catch when seeing it in the theaters.
True, but that's only what we've seen so far.
It's likely that there will be additional scenes in the finale that either weren't filmed directly in front of everyone or shot at seperate times and different spots to be editied together later on, if that makes sense.
I think there were a lot of Muppets created just for the halibut and for backaround use to look like there's a lot more Muppets
I doubt that, since the movie, made by huge fans, is about reviving old characters, not introducing new ones (the only truly new characters in the new film are Walter, '80's Robot and The Moopets).
But I've seen some really random Muppets in the backarounds that I haven't seen anywhere else. In that last scene there is defiantley a lot of new characters
I think the 150 Muppets finale may be referring to the Rainbow Connection number anyway, not the reprise...but we'll see I guess?
No. As the paragraph I quoted stated, it was referring to the big finale number on Hollywood Blvd., not Rainbow Connection.
Can't wait to see it! So there's a bit of an extra scene in the credits before the celebrity Mahna Mahna then?
Okay, speaking of tons of Muppets--Am I the only one who noticed Fuzzyface? He's clearly there in the crowd shot with all the Muppets like Big Mean Carl, Rizzo in the lowerr lefthand corner and the like. It's definitely him, right?
Where'd you see this?
at 0:52 in front of Behemoth. If that's not Fuzzyface, then I'm very confused.
It's not; it's a generic monster they've had for awhile.
Somebody said who that Grover-like monster is, but I forget its name. I've heard the monster appears in either Muppets on Wheels or Things That Fly.
Not sure if this was asked yet, but during the start of the Muppet Show intro was Timmy Monster or a 5th Monster present?
and (hopefully not a spoilerish question)
Aside from the track on the CD, During the Muppet Telethon intro did anyone say "Why don't you get things started?" ?
Another possibility I just thought of:
Perhaps Clifford's appearance is just a VERY brief blink-and-you'll-miss-it non-speaking cameo and Kevin maybe got to put the puppet on and manipulate him anyway.
The ever-reliable Muppet Wiki lists Kevin as a puppeteer in the new film, so there's always that kind of a possibility.
I saw an article about the movie today (can't remember the website... The link's at the Tough Pigs forum) where an explanation is made regarding the empty arches. They mention that we get to see the backstage wall that we normally didn't on the show, and the fact that some arches are empty reflects that.
I don't know if this is really a "spoiler" but I'll mention something else that was brought up: It was said that some characters just didn't show up in time.
