About the Movie

The Muppets is a 2011 American musical comedy film, the first Muppets theatrical release in twelve years. The film is directed by James Bobin, written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, produced by Jason Segel, Martin Baker, David Furnish, David Hoberman, Todd Lieberman, and John Scotti, and stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and Rashida Jones.

In the film, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary, and Gary’s girlfriend Mary help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets. They must raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theater from Tex Richman, a businessman who plans to demolish the studio to drill for oil.

The film was first announced in March 2008, with production commencing in September 2010. The film premiered at the 2011 Savannah Film Festival, and was released by Walt Disney Pictures in North America on November 23, 2011. The film went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song for the song “Man or Muppet”, written by Bret McKenzie; the first Academy Award presented to a Muppet film. The Muppets is also the highest-grossing film of the franchise to date (not accounting for inflation, otherwise, the highest-grossing Muppet film is The Muppet Movie).

Following the critical and commercial success of the film, Walt Disney Pictures announced a sequel, which will begin filming at Pinewood Studios in January 2013.
