    Just looked through some of the stills...


    Loving Strangepork's Schveater Vest.

    I adore that. I also love the trench coat that we've been seeing Link in lately. They have some simply stunning clothes in the movie. Kermit in Brooks Brothers!

    Regardless of taken for movie, or taken from movie, or taken in real life, Kermit and Piggy are still standing beside each other, talking about or at least showing a photo of both of them, ripped in half. Married or unmarried...romance is certainly on the cards.

    I've imagined so ever since it was announced to be released for Valentine's Day over here.

    Oh, I'm not denying that. I was just saying it doesn't mean that their marriage actually happened, even in the universe of this movie.

    I really don't want to read into the movie, reading makes self spoilers... but you gotta realize. This is only the second Muppet movie that referenced past movies. And only because VMX made that reference to Doc Hopper's in the world where Kermit was never born. So basically, I get the feeling we have references to the first 3 movies, but those 3 movies never really fit together. Any reference to GMC would be strange (and if Charles Grodin were in it, they would have linked it with this film), as they even say in the movie they're playing characters in a movie (Fozzie and Kermit being brothers was a throwaway gag, not canon).

    Again, trying to put Muppets in canon is maddening. The only thing taken literally would be the Muppet Movie... but then stuff from the Muppet Show doesn't work.

    I feel like VMX referenced all of the movies, with the exception of Muppet Treasure Isand and Kermit's Swamp Years.
    • The Muppet Movie - A line from The Rainbow Connection is inscribed on a statue of Kermit (in addition to the Doc Hopper mention).
    • The Great Muppet Caper - The scene with the characters arguing over not wanting to work for free and then having a change of heart feels like the scene where everyone tries to get out of stopping the thieves and then changing their minds. Note in both cases Fozzie gets them to stop talking and convinces them (I think he also says "shame on you" both times), and in both Scooter is the first one after Fozzie to change his mind.
    • The Muppets Take Manhattan - Early on, while working on the Christmas show, Kermit remarks that "something's missing".
    • The Muppet Christmas Carol - Before the show starts, Bunsen and Beaker are dressed in their clothes from the movie.

    Y0u know, after reading over Toughpigs and The Muppet Mindset's breakdown of the trailer, I'm going have to say that I like both, but The Muppet Mindset was a little better. It had more pictures, more squeeing.

    Hi everyone, I'm new to the forums, sorry for such a random, weird first post, I feel like I'm derailing a bit but... Right above Animal, in between Afgan Hound(?) and Big Mean Carl, kinda below Pokey...

    Is that Mergie/Singalotti/Blustering Bellowpane Monster? It looks like the original build for him/her before they added the 'trumpet' nose...

    The parody trailer is on YT's Most Viewed clips on its front page...that bodes VERY well for the film's success this Thanksgiving.

    You know what part of the trailer i like? The frame where it says: "The Muppets Thanksgiving" - which reads in my mind not just that the film is out Thanksgiving but i love the idea of a "Muppet Thanksgiving" Usually Thanksgiving is a lonely affair where the family pretends we like each other and the entire day is just uncomfortable as i have to check my food to see that my insanely homophobic brother-in-law didn't tamper with it or check to see if he did anything to my car (at least not having a car anymore i don't have to worry about this year) so to be able to think instead of a "Muppets Thanksgiving" just makes me feel good all over.

    Yes, yes it is.

    Thanks! That's so neat.

    A Muppet Thanksgiving does sound a lot better than the typical Thanksgiving. Though mine are no where near as bad as yours. My mother invites people from the church over and I don't like feeling I'm going to have to hold my tongue if someone makes an ignorant remark.

    I'd much rather have a Thanksgiving with Kermit and the Gang over that... Even if it meant just vitamin pills for dinner if the Swedish Chef couldn't wrangle the main course!

    Thanks. one edit though, the second lines he's actually singing "Muppets, Muppets, Muppets, Muppets"

    If it meant having the Muppets over for Thanksgiving, I'd willingly eat a roasted sneaker stuffed with brocolli (and I know I'm spelling that wrong. Can someone correct me?). :hungry:

    I'd also suggest that its "Comedy of skills" rather than Probably your skills, and maybe ills not years?

    I thought about posting about this earlier. I definitely agree on ills rather than years - it fits the rhyme scheme. I was also thinking "comedy of skills," but I can't tell for sure; it could be something else.

    Oh, and does anyone know if Jim Lewis is writing for these trailers? It totally sounds like his flavor of awesomeness.

    I agree with you completely! Only with the Muppets we'd be eating, a talking roasted sneaker stuffed with broccoli.

    P.S. It's broccoli
