    There will be a wedding in the new Muppets movie, plus other things we know about the sequel

    Thanks to the loose lips of production designer Eve Stewart, we now know the new Muppets movie will feature a wedding for Miss Piggy. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean she gets married, mind you. Maybe she flees the altar like Diane did in Italy during her wedding to Frasier (Cheers, anyone?) or maybe Miss Piggy is kidnapped, beaten and then executed by Russian Gulag prison guards, since, apparently there are

    Review: The Muppets movie is everything you want it to be

    Maybe it was the wine (thanks, Alamo Drafthouse in Austin, for your always wonderful food service!), but as I watched The Muppets, I could not stop smiling. I admit it: I was nervous before the film began. The Muppets hold so much cultural cachet: would the characters hold up over so many years?

    This week, Saturday Night Live followed up last week’s success with an equally strong episode that found Jason Segel as host– with a little help from his Muppet friends, of course.

    Check out the new parody-tastic Muppets movie trailer

    The people pulling the strings on The Muppets are cleverly yanking our chains in the trailer for the upcoming movie of the same name: The comedy unabashedly cadges the music, style and thrilling pulse of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trailer and also seems to shout ‘”hooray for Bollywood” in a “caste” of thousands dance number. Yes, Kermit and Miss Piggy are the headliners, but their backup band includes
