The Muppets

The Muppets Brief Information

The Muppets is a 2011 American musical comedy film, and the first Muppets theatrical release in twelve years. The film is directed by James Bobin, written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman, and stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, and Rashida Jones. The film's score was composed by Christophe Beck, while Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie served as music supervisor, writing four of the film's five original songs. In The Muppets, devoted fan Walter, his brother Gary, and Gary's girlfriend Mary, help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets, as they must raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theater from Tex Richman, a businessman who plans to demolish the studio to drill for oil.

Walt Disney Pictures originally announced the film's development in March 2008, with Segel and Stoller writing the screenplay, and Mandeville Films co-producing the film. Bobin was hired to direct in January 2010, and the film's supporting cast was filled out in October of the same year, with the hiring of Adams, Cooper, and Jones. Filming began in September 2010 and was completed entirely in Los Angeles, California. The film was the first theatrical Muppet production without the involvement of veteran Muppet performers Frank Oz and Jerry Nelson, although Nelson provides an uncredited vocal cameo. Instead, their characters are performed by Eric Jacobson and Matt Vogel, respectively, marking their theatrical debut as those characters.
