Parody Trailer…'Being Green' (aka The Muppets)

Now this is getting good! First there was the coy reveal that there was a new The Muppets on the horizon in the trailer for what looked like a dreadful rom-com. Next they took to parodying The Hangover II with their trailer for The Fuzzy Pack. Now it looks like no one is safe from parody and the (marketing) gang is at again it piggy backing the other Green movie this year Green Lantern. Leave it to Henson’s The Muppets to have a laugh at everyone with the added bonus of never offending a single person (yeah I’m looking at you South Park). So this is another trailer expostiory void trailer but who cares…it made me laugh. Enjoy…

It’s been a while since we’ve seen a theatrical Muppets movie but this looks to channel the patented self-aware charm that made the classics like The Great Muppet Caper such a success. Directed by James Bobin this film tells the tale of two roommates who must save Muppet Theater by reuniting Kermit, Piggy, and the entire troupe to stage an “old-fashioned extravaganza.”. Like every Muppet film in the past you can bet on this being chock full of celebrity cameos large and small. Headlining so far are Jason Siegel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin and Billy Crystal.

They even took the parody one step further. Check out this neat poster featuring Kermit in a Green Lantern styled poster after the jump. You can expect to see The Muppets in theaters right before Thanksgiving this Fall on November 23rd, 2011. I’m sold, what about you? Anyone eager for another fun outing with The Muppets??
