Oh if the movie brings in all the Segal/Apatow type crowds, that'd be very very cool. The fact it has the hipness going for it makes it light years ahead of what MFS had going for it Oh man, I've been asking that SAME question on here since 1998 Its a very valid point. Whenever I wear Muppet stuff, people always smile or come up and say how they love it. But yeah, actual fans...that's very hard to say. Disney is going to need to really push the youth/college angle harder with youtube and other stuff as well as the family marketing. I do remember in 2008 across select theaters, United Artists showed Muppets Take Manhattan as part of their free family film thing. I remember going to the one they had near me, and they filled every seat for both showings in three different theater rooms at the local UA. And it was two days, so thats a lot of kids who got to experience what I go to in 1984. And I tell ya, all these years later MTM on the big screen held their attention and is still just as magical. Not sure MFS would have commanded the same awe. But yeah, its very hard to say what the average movie goer will think in a year; but if we know the Disney marketing machine... Still, the perception of Muppets as "nostalgic/old stuff/kiddy stuff from the past" needs to be done away with.
