First Image from THE GREATEST MUPPET MOVIE EVER MADE in High-Resolution

by Matt Goldberg

Image

Earlier this week, we brought you’re a low-resolution scan from Entertainment Weekly that provided the first look at Jason Segel and the Muppets in the tentatively-titled The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made. We now have an updated and high-resolution version of that image. The new image includes director James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords), co-writer Nick Stoller, and musician/actor Bret McKenzie.

Hit the jump to check out an image of Muppet mayhem. The film, which will also star Jack Black, Donald Glover, Jane Lynch, Danny Trejo, Eric Stonestreet, John Krasinski, Ed Helms, Lady Gaga, and Paul Rudd, is set to open on December 25, 2011.


Click on the image to see it in high-resolution.

Here’s the official caption for the image from Disney:

DISNEY THE MUPPETS – FORGETTING MISS PIGGY? FUHGEDDABOUDIT! – There better not be creative differences when Miss Piggy is around. Just ask the team behind the new Disney Muppet movie, Jason Segel, James Bobin, Nick Stoller and Bret McKenzie joined here by Kermit the Frog, his new co-star Walter and the usual suspects at their first table read.

#sadlove# #sadlove# but isn't that funny that Paul Rudd is going to star in it? He can't stay away from the Conchords #haha# #love3#

Some rumours I've seen before this article (the first story is pretty sad really):

The brutal reality of this business

This week has been tough. One of those weeks that really tests your resolve, your desire to go on; a week that has been at worst a spirit crusher, at best a character builder.

I think it’s important to share some of these difficult periods. Sometimes this blog can seem like a self-aggrandizing promotional tool, and indeed it is that to a degree, but I also want to provide a glimpse into the darker, decidedly unglamourous part of this business.

So here’s the deal.

A month or so ago, Chad and I wrote a humourous rap track for the villain of the upcoming Muppets movie (Tex Richman). This was an entirely solicited pitch, through a well regarded L.A. music supervisor. We knew we did a great job and felt in our bones that we really had a shot. Well, we just found out that we didn’t win the pitch. Now, this in itself shouldn’t have been devastating news; the competition on these pitches is always fierce, and you really can’t expect to win many of them. The difficult part is that the producer from Disney said that she LOVED our track but the director has been working with Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords, and they’ve come up with something else for that scene that they really like. How can you compete with someone who is on the inside track, collaborating with the director? You can’t. The Disney producer said that if it weren’t for Bret McKenzie’s work with the director, our track would have been the one. Ouch.

Ex Producer Martin Baker is the best at his job! Making my job on "Muppet Musical" feature film enjoyable! Composer Bret Mckenzie is fab!

Okay, I feel bad for posting this in a THIRD thread but I don't think anyone saw it in the other places, so I'm posting it here. :P

Muppet Update: Paul Rudd NOT the voice of Walter the Muppet (says @TheInSneider) - but Kristen Schaal has been mentioned as the Moderator.

Sucks about Paul Rudd but how awesome is it that Kristen is now going to be in it as well?! #excited# I think this really will be "The Greatest Muppet Movie Ever Made" ;D

ADD: Actually, I don't know if this means Paul Rudd won't be in it or if it simply just means he won't be doing the voice he was thought to be doing... #shrug#

That character on the piano is one of my favourite characters in the Muppets. What do you call nim in English? An animal?

And seeing him next to Bret #love3# #love3# #love3#
