The late Jim Henson‘s The MUPPETS are back, and they’re taking on the “Twilight” franchise with a challenge not even Jacob Black can ignore. What say you, Twi-hards?
These beloved furry puppets haven’t been seen on the big screen since Disney produced their last film in 1996, “Muppet Treasure Island.” And despite their 12-year hiatus from the public eye, it seems the three-foot tall characters are storming the box office and aiming to knock “Breaking Dawn Part 1″ off the map…
Or maybe they’re just riding on the coattails of “Twilight” fame, who knows.
But don’t you agree Kermit the Frog looks dashing in a dark turtleneck and tweed overcoat? And doesn’t Miss Piggy (who made her first public appearance in more than a decade kissing LeAnn Rimes, no less) appear more Rosalie Hale than Bella?
The Muppets will be starring in the Disney movie of the same name, with co-stars Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and Jason Segel, and will feature the whole cast of furry characters created by famous puppeteer Jim Henson in 1956, that were launched into fame with the success of “The Muppet Show” on British television in 1974.
Oh, and we musn’t forget the Muppet spoofing Jacob Black. Unlike Jacob, Rowlf is a very talented pianist, and has been pounding those ivory keys with ears swinging since 1963:
So prepare yourselves for “The Muppets‘” dominion in theaters on November 23…
