The Muppets are releasing a new movie!

The Muppets are returning!! It's true that The Muppets are releasing a new movie this year. For those of you who don't know who the Muppets are ( I don't know how that's possible but there's bound to be someone). They are Puppets. The main characters are Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy the Pig, Rizzo the Rat, Fozzy the Bear, Animal the Animal, Gonzo the Great ( or Whatever). They were a Tv show that started in 1976. They released 5 seasons and a couple of new shows like Sesame Street, Muppets Tonight, America next top Muppet and a Web series called Statler and Waldorf.: From the Balcony. Another muppet everyone is familiar with is the Jedi master Yoda. He is a muppet for those of you who didn't know. Voiced by the same guy who voices Fozzy the Bear. Frank Oz. 

Muppets have released a few movies such as The Muppet Movie, Muppets Christmas Carol, Muppets Treasure Island,Muppets Wizard of Oz and Muppets from Space. Now the latest is The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made! (That's the name not my expectations... Although i do expect it to be awesome!). The Muppets are putting on a show to save their old Theater ( watch The Muppet Movie). Jason Segal wrote the script and James  Bobin is the Director. The Muppet movies always have Cameos like Muppets from Space had Two of the Dawson's creek characters or Muppet Island with Billy Connoly. A few of the Cameos for this film are said to be Jack Black, Amy Adams, Jane Lynch and Lady Gaga! 

I grew up with the Muppets so this is like my Childhood returning to me. My 6 year old brother likes them, aswell but out of the two of us I'm the bigger fan. So far my favorite Muppet movie is Muppet Treasure Island (based on the book by Robert Louise Stevenson) . The story is for kids but the jokes are aimed at the older audience. Also the Music is rather catchy. It's a good retelling of a classic story. 

The two oldest Muppet Characters are Statler and Waldorf. They are Sarcastic and have seriously bad jokes. In the Muppets from Space movie Miss Piggy walks out the house during breakfast. Waldorf turns to Statler and asks if breakfast is over. Statler say no and asks why. Waldorf says the bacon just ran out. Then they laugh. They also often refer to themselves being lucky that they're in the movies and not watching them.

I for one am looking forward to this Movie. I will see it in Cinema! It'll be weird seeing a teenage boy sitting in the cinema for a kids movie. Actually it won't I do it all the time.    

The Muppets Bohemian Rhapsody.... Awesome way to introduce new People to the Muppets!
