Muppets Rising

The New York Times had a lengthy feature Sunday on the upcoming Muppets movie, which is scheduled to arrive at Thanksgiving. I first heard about the movie when I interviewed Jason Segel a few years ago, and now it's in production.

I'm not gonna lie- everything about the movie, from the concept to the talent behind it to what appears to be the general attitude of the production- sounds awesome. They get what the Muppets are about and what people like about them. And the plot sounds like a combination of "Muppets Take Manhattan" and "Ratatouille," complete with a new Muppet character who's trying, "Dreams from My Father"-style, to come to terms with his muppet identity. It may be the 2011 movie I'm most looking forward to.
