In a continuation of what have been awesome teaser trailers for The Muppets movie they score again with a timely Green Lantern parody. Seriously though, there’s been a lot of green on this blog lately, go figure. This new teaser, ‘It’s Not Easy Being Green,’ offers us another short glimpse at The Muppets opening November 23rd.
Not only does this trailer poke fun at Hal Jordan (always acceptable) but action movies in general, and it’s something I’d love to see continue. The people behind The Muppets have a great understanding and admiration for their property, and know how to perfectly blend self-awareness with pop culture references. Plus, it’s even funny! Win, win.
Check out the teaser below, as well as earlier trailers, ‘Green With Envy’ and ‘The Fuzzy Pack’ below the cut.
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, “The Muppets” hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
