Walt Disney Pictures released a teaser trailer for The Muppets attached to Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides. The trailer wasn’t released online until after opening weekend, because I’m told Disney execs believe the trailer plays better in large audiences on the big screen. And yes, watching it online, you miss the gasps and response that comes from the big reveal that it is a new Muppet movie. The trailer was even uploaded to YouTube under the faux title “Green With Envy” to help preserve the surprise. We could have posted it under that title, but none of you would’ve watched it.
Directed by James Bobin with a script by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, the November 23rd release stars Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and many, many more
