Muppet Sequel To “Reboot” Kermit/Piggy Wedding

tumblr_lldh33hhkf1qcoaf4o1_500

Let’s face it, no one watches a Muppet flick for continuity. Even back in the Jim Henson days each film was essentially its own standalone story.

So it should come as little surprise that James Bobin is re-creating probably the most well remembered and iconic moment from the original Muppet franchise: The Muppets…Again will feature (again) the wedding of Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy.
(Since I was 7 years old I’ve wondered if this would make Piggy’s legal name “Piggy The Frog”–but I digress)

Muppet fans wil no doubt recall the wedding that capped off 1984’s The Muppets take Manhattan, but following films were…..well “unclear” as to whether or not the marriage took, and by 2011’s The Muppets, the couple’s romance seemed to be back to square one.

This info comes via/Film, who posted production designer Eve Stewart’s interview with the BBC, where she discussed her newest project:

“I’m now at Pinewood doing the Muppet show, and today has been one of the best days of my life, designing Miss Piggy’s wedding at the Tower of London…I’ve never been so happy.”

Personally, since the wedding is apparently taking place in London, I’m hoping for a couple nice call-backs to The Great Muppet Caper.

The Muppets…Again will star Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais, and is due in theatres March 21st, 2014.

Hey, y’all remember when we said that Bruce Campbell would be sticking his chin out to the un-dead by officiating a Zombie wedding to one lucky couple at ZomBCon (the outrageously zombie themed convention)? Well it happened, and our friends at Geekscape got it on video. While the actual ceremony of ghoulish couples was not captured they managed to snag the mass vow renewal ceremony that was for all the other wedded zombies in attendance.

This confirms it, Bruce Campbell is one of the greatest men alive. I don’t think I’ll ever get married now, since any other wedding will feel slightly less than awesome compared to this.

Congratulations for the happy zombie couple. May you be in love till the day you are shotgunned in the face.

People get very innovative around their wedding time. Instance 1: My buddy Chris dresssed as Han Solo marying Princess Leia on their wedding even though the priest was Vader..He must have survived the dark side and came back as a Jedi for for the ceremony. Instance 2: Before that Wedding, I walked down the isle before my wife to the ceremonial march a the end of Episode 4 A New Hope… I had the whole resort watching and was told by many a drunken male later that night, that they always wanted for their wedding but the WIFE wouldn’t allow it. Lucky me and my bud, have cool wives..More afer the jump (more…)
