    It's actually Kermit holding the part of the picture with Piggy in and Piggy holding the part of the picture with Kermit in it, and they are putting the pieces together!!!!! I am so frickin excited for this movie!- Finally, a chance for frog and pig romance that has been sorely missed.

    Totally teased beyond oblivion with this trailer; I totally feel I might explode from anticipation waiting to see this movie!!! :crazy:

    I saw that this was posted just before I had to get offline and go to work, working a double-shift, so I had a long day to wait to see this. This is a great trailer. I am surprised they made another teaser, and I'm surprised that only a few clips were reused.

    There's a shot of the Moopets from behind. This is the first time I saw the hair of the Janice Moopet, which is short and black. I had wondered if it was different from Janice's hair (since the main clip with Moopet's seems to obscure her hair).

    The arches shot looks different from what was in a previous trailer, and yet they still didn't add anyone to those empty arches.

    Seeing Uncle Deadley in that shot outside Hollywood Boulivard in what appears to be the final number looks like a signal that he will turn against Tex Richman by the end of the movie (I didn't have much doubt on it, though).

    I wonder about that Clodhopper/Grover-like character. It does look a darker shade of blue, but if it was rebuilt then that could be one reason. But somebody at Tough Pigs mentioned it was a monster used in a Muppet Meeting Film.

    This trailer is absolutely amazing! So much so quickly!!! Is the restaurant that Sarah Silverman was in Pete's? I have to say that without a doubt that my two favorite parts were the wedding picture and watching Rowlf's paws play the piano- that was such a great looking shot! Kermit in a Brooks Brothers Suit walking with Miss Piggy on the streets of Paris totally had me awwing as well! It is going to be soooo hard waiting until November 23rd to see this- I really have amazingly high hopes for this movie and I plan to bring kleenex for my tears of joy :)

    I agree. Let's hope that those empty arches will be filled before the film hits the theaters.

    I'd also like to point out a slight continuity error: in the shots of the characters singing in the arches, Janice is part of the females' chorus line, but she also appears in the orchestra pit as well. :confused:

    Personally, I've always felt that Janice should be a regular member of the Muppet Orchestra, in addition to her Electric Mayhem bandmates anyway.

    When it came to this part in the trailer, it looked as if Animal was about to snap!

    True.. but that was the way the original was too. Notice though how in this version she's in the arches for the "put on makeup" verse, then not in the arches for the end... maybe that's when she runs back down to the pit?

    Well...if you want a Sesame Street cameo, you technically got one. I don't know who that "mystery Grover" is, but Beautiful Day monster is definitely in the movie. He's had history with both The Muppet Show and early Sesame Street sketches. And if you really want to stretch things, although they are different puppets, the song "Mah-Na-Mah-Na" was performed (presumably) by the same character.

    Then again, who knows? Maybe it is Grover...or they hauled "Fuzzyface" out of the drawer at Sesame Workshop, cleaned him up and tossed him in the shot.

    Heh...all the hard work they put into this trailer and film and we're having a "Hey, that's Grover!...or is it?" discussion.

    Seriously, I can't wait until November 23rd either!!!

    As much as I wish that was a grover cameo, it is in fact a clodhopper

    Of course what made the original films extra special were all the Sesame cameos.

    Anyways, there's a part of the trailer that is just sheer amazing: when we see the quick cuts of the wall raising with kermit, and the closeup of rowlf's hands...for some reason that struck me as really something.

    Also, looks like Scooter still has a thing for Stallone:)

    Yes, I UNDERSTAND that the picture could be a screenshot from the movie (as in, MTM). However ... *sniffle* ... HOWEVER ... if that had been all a fantasy, the picture SHOULD NOT exist! *squees with utter delight in voice only dogs can hear* THEY HAVE A PICTURE! IT WAS REAL ... REAL, I TELL YOU! *faints*

    Hate to be anal , but that (once again) is not a Clodhopper. They had yellow noses and were much flatter. It's just a regular monster. He was used in a Muppet Meeting Film ("Think Bigger") and on the cover of some Muppet computer book.

    I love the universe we live in, "just a regular monster". Nothing extraordinary, just some guy.

    I think it's still a mixture of the tone and the clips used out of context. As I've said before, the official trailer doesn't have nearly the polish that these parody ones do, the Moopets were pretty confusingly added into the mix, and somehow it seemed like if they were trying to make the trailer a parody of general movie trailers, maybe I could see that... even the TV spot version was better than the movie trailer.

    Of course, I went to a theater that just showed the Green with Envy one every time I saw a Kid's movie.

    It seems these parody ones are geared towards the hard core, older fans while the general release one was cursed as being what family movie audiences want to see.

    @Tooth: All I know is I go from a gut feeling, and something about the full trailer was off on all counts. And I hear the mahna mahna radio part was even taken out

    Regarding the new trailer, most the talkbackers on AICN, even a lot of the cynics are blown away by this and seem genuinely excited. Just that, like a lot of us, they dont know too many people to go see it with.

    That was from the test screening, am I correct? Who knows if it's going to be there or not until we've seen it.

    I've seen plenty of stuff that was in trailers that wasn't in the final film, but they were just like 2 second exchanges and lines that were only implied. I've been seeing rashes of trailers that don't quite make the movie look good on any counts, only putting in the loudest and dumbest sequences to get the attention of dumb little kids. One certain movie had all the worst sequences in the film in the trailer, and didn't come off as that terrible. Another movie, while not that good either, added farts, poops, and the wrong exchanges over and over. But then again, I've seen trailers where they put all the action sequences in the movie in them, and the rest of the film is long dialogue... you just don't know what the film really is about anymore.

    Of course, I can safely say, the Yogi Bear trailer basically showed ALL the Yogi/BooBoo segments and didn't point out the mind crushingly generic Mary sue relationship bit, so it goes either way.

    Still, I like to think of The Matrix as the worst trailer of a great movie I've ever seen. It emphasized the action sequences (poorly, I might add) without getting into the deeper meaning of the film.

    Now that I think of it, most trailers suck anyway. Some get you excited, some are just clumsy... every single other trailer for this movie has been epic except for the official one. The clips in every other one are more interesting and more exciting... the one that wasn't a parody... I know what they were trying to go for, but they didn't capture it. Still, the test group's general consensus was that the film was good... the leaked sequence sounded amazing... so I'd just bet bad trailer on that one.

    One of my favorite things gleaned from this fantasmagorical trailer is that the Moopets are in fact EVIL and that UD might turn out to be GOOD. I knew it! Cannot WAIT to see this film.
