International Poster for 'The Muppets' Has Whole Gang Really Excited
From the cheesy faux romantic comedy preview to the Green Lantern inspired trailer, the marketing for The Muppets has been fun and just plain fantastic. Then the full length trailer without any fake movies or teasing finally came through and it looks like our favorite puppets are going to return to the big screen with quite a splash. On the poster side of things, that first one with the Muppets walking was a little strange since we've never seen full body shots of them moving before. Well, thankfully this new international poster harkens back to the colorful Toy Story 3 poster of last year and has the gang super excited for the movie!
James Bobin ("Flight of the Conchords") is at the helm of this new Muppets movie, which follows Walter and Gary (Segel), two die-hard Muppet fans and roommates who must save Muppet Theater by reuniting Kermit, Piggy, and the entire troupe to stage an "old-fashioned extravaganza." The cast is full of all kinds of celebrity cameos and other great random appearances, including Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Rashida Jones, Zach Galifianakis, Ricky Gervais, Alan Arkin and Billy Crystal. Shooting is already finished, and Disney will be bringing The Muppets to theaters starting November 23rd this Thanksgiving. Doesn't this look great?

I realize they're trying to have this movie carry more of an orginal muppets feel but i'm still disappointed that it looks like we will not be seing Pepe

"we've never seen full body shots of them moving before" Alex, do you mean we've never seen a poster of that or are you saying we've never seen a full body shot of muppets in a movie before?

Well, both actually. That initial teaser poster was the first one to have them walking upright and show their whole bodies. And as far as I can recall, with the exception of the larger Muppets that usually have someone inside of them, we've never seen Kermit or others like that showing their full body in motion.

They definitely have shown their full bodies in the movies, starting with The Muppet Movie. We see Kermit riding his bike early in the movie and then we see Fozzie and Kermit dancing at the El Sleezo Cafe. And that's just the beginning of a list of many. That's why I was confused. I definitely agree that the first poster for this was awkward, but it's not because we've never seen the muppets' full bodies in motion, we definitely have, I think it's because it was just a bad/weird poster.

Looks like the Toy Story 3 Poster.

Yeah, they've walked plenty of times. The Muppet Movie shocked audiences at the time because Kermit rode a bike and, as Shoes Dude noted, danced at the cafe. They never walked upright on the original muppet show, but with the film budget, they did lots of walking - just look at some of the 'action' stuff in Great Muppet Caper or Treasure Island. That poster looked awkward, but not because we'd never seen them walk before.

in the Muppet movie Kermit is shown to be cycling with his whole body.
