what's the story

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary and Gary’s girlfriend Mary from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman to raze the Muppet Theater. And drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With signature celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets” hits UK cinemas on February 10, 2012.

8th Feb 12'
For more than 35 years, Kermit The Frog, Miss Piggy and their fun-loving friends have been firmly ingrained in our rose-tinted childhood memories with their slapstick routines and song and dance numbers. The popularity of Jim Henson's creations has never waned thanks to endless repeats of the award-winning television series The Muppet Show, which ended in 1981, and subsequent film adventures including madcap re-imaginings of A Christmas Carol, Treasure Island and The Wizard Of Oz. Director James Bobin expertly taps into that nostalgia with The Muppets, a glorious throwback to the days of yore that sees the colourful critters facing an uncertain future in a world of technological advances and fleeting celebrity.
