    I like this trailer. Obviously it's hard to judge a movie off of one minute, but I do like that Sam, Scooter, and especially Rowlf appeared to be prominent in the trailer. I would love to see them play a large role in the movie.

    Consider me excited for March 2014!

    Isn't that Eric's head peeking over to the right of Steve?

    And I am not quite sure whether Steve was supposed to be seen or not, as it seems that he is speaking as Kermit (or Constantine) falls, and is wearing his headband...

    Have to say, lifelong Muppet fan (35 this year) and really enjoyed the recent Muppets film...but that was a terrible trailer. Hoping the finished product is better.

    Holy cow! It's Steve!
    I guess it was a good way to sneak in and puppeteer Kermit anyway, since there is a large crowd, and they were supposed to be carrying him, which is a good cover up for holding Kermit up to the camera.

    I also noticed that the puppeteers are wearing those furry hats that fold over in the front, where as everyone else has different hats. Those are probably covering their Muppeteer headbands.
    I think that's the point (No pun intended). I believe that to be Constatine, with slighty bigger eyes and shorter pointer collar.

    IMO, Constantine looks a lot like Kermit from KSY. The only things different are the eyes and mole.

    That's what I thought. I wonder if Constantine found a collar that looked close enough to Kermit's, and still managed to successfully fool the other Muppets into thinking he was Kermit.

    From analyzing the trailer, it looks like the fake Kermit is hosting the Muppet Show. At :26 seconds in, you can see the collar different than the regular collar Kermit has. Constantine and Ricky Gervais also looked to be in the Muppet Theater on stage at :32 seconds in. Perhaps part of the plot is the real Kermit is in the Russian prison after trying to clear up his name and gets imprisoned because people believe he's the fake Kermit. Kermit is discovered to be the real Kermit by Tiny Fey's character, who then lets Kermit get back to the States towards the end of the film to get his doppelganger and perhaps Ricky Gervais's character and send them back over to European or Russian authorities.

    Maybe Constatine is the host of the Russian version of the Muppet Show (Маппет Шоу)?

    There's been behind-the-scenes photos of what looked like Steve performing Constantine, and I wondered whether that was Constantine or Kermit posing as Constantine. But now that we know he has a smaller-pointed collar and slightly different pupils, we know that it is Kermit posing.

    Too bad the trailer doesn't have any footage of Constantine talking. That would let us know whether Steve will be performing him.

    The fact that Scooter has a number to himself (with the penguins, anyway) made my day. Hopefully Rowlf has a much bigger and better scene than the last film (which was still his biggest Muppet project appearance in years) as well. So far, this movie is completely mopping the floor up with its predecessor as far as I'm concerned.

    I love that too! David Rudman can really sing and he's been doing a great job keeping Scooter alive! ;)

    Mw - I don't believe this! Somebody likes your performance.
    ;): Gosh, I don't know whose ides for that song, but the cheif did tell me to listen to Maroon 5.
    Me - And this song! I thought it was pretty cool! And the penguins were with you, Scooter. Who thought it wasn't so great.
    ;): That would be Walter!
    Me - Well, I just don't know why Walter didn't like it. You know what I was thinking? Everthing is better with Muppets no song you guys do.
    ;): Yeah and the boss would want us to listen to well... the performers that did the songs.
    Me - Gosh, I am pretty smart. I cannot wait for March 2014! YAAAAAAAAY! Well, gotta go, Scooter. I don't want to waste any more of your time.
    ;): I have to go too. I have to talk to the boss to find out if the fans like the trailer they watched.
    Me - Okay! Bye Scooter!

    Phew. Okay. Now I've taken some time out to chillax, I can actually give a proper review.

    From what I saw, I liked. Not loved, just liked. I'm glad the mystery of the fabulous gold tuxedo has been solved and I must say Rowlf was looking spectacular. It was great to see Rowlf, Pepe, Rizzo and Sam have such a strong presence and hopefully the Electric Mayhem will follow suit. I mean, come on. It's the Electric freakin' Mayhem!

    I trust Ricky Gervais, so I won't begin to question how he'll cope in the film. He'll be awesome as Dominique. The other two human stars I really don't care about, so I'll talk about Constantine for a moment. First of all, he looks like Kermit had gone on a drunken tiki tour through the Bahamas. Second of all, that suits him perfectly.

    I think I'm starting to get a handle on the plot line. As far as I can see, Constantine sends Dominique to the Muppets to act as a show producer. Dom convinces the troupe to go on a world tour, they agree and eventually they are in Europe. Constantine and Dom use them as a vice to getting into and robbing all of these places. In the mix of things, Constantine moves in, poses as Kermit and Kermit gets thrown into prison. I'm not sure how the wedding gets involved, but there is the Frog situation as I know it.

    Judging by the trailer, this movie is gonna be sillier and more extravagant than TM, which is a good sign. :D
