It’s been a whirlwind bunch of days for news of The Muppets with Kermit appearing at the Disneyland premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, the first teaser poster being discovered this past weekend, and now a confirmation that the first trailer for The Muppets will be attached to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The news is being confirmed by numerous sources including The Gate Entertainment Magazine, Film School Rejects, and our friends at ToughPigs.
This news is absolutely huge. Not only does it mean the trailer will be in front of Pirates, which is released this Friday, May 20th, but we can also expect to see said trailer online in some capacity around that time as well. Like I said, Pirates comes out this weekend so in just a few days the Muppets trailer will be out for all to see! I already have my tickets for the midnight showing on Thursday… so expect a tweet from me after seeing the trailer for my thoughts (if they are still intelligible).
In other pretty cool news, ToughPigs also showed off a brief Muppet mention in today’s USA Today which shows off the teaser poster and has a few quotes from Segel, in which he says that every Muppet we could possibly think of is in the movie. Finally! The triumphant return of Mr. Poodlepants!
