Watch the Teaser for Muppets Most Wanted

Muppets Most Wanted is coming to theaters in the USA on March 21, 2014, and we just got our first look at the teaser trailer.  Although it’s short and vague, we’re nearly as excited as Kermit.

Muppets Most Wanted

Although it doesn’t give much information on what will happen in the newest Muppets installment, the trailer does offer a tiny glimpse at some of the amazing comedic and musical talent that will be included in the new film.  We’re excited to see Kermit and the gang share time with stars like Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais, and thrilled to see cameos from everyone from Danny Trejo and Til Schweiger to Usher and Céline Dion.

Muppets Desert

What we know so far about Muppets Most Wanted is that our favorite felt friends will find themselves caught in a major jewel heist while in the middle of a world tour.  Does that sound familiar?  If hot air balloons are involved, the Chipmunks and Chippettes may be able to sue for copyright infringement.  Luckily, the Muppets will bring their own brand of magic, humor and meta-fiction that Alvin could only dream of.  We love movies about movies, and the Muppets never disappoint in offering their own take on the entertainment industry.  Although there are some other Disney offerings slated for release in the meantime, we’re already looking forward to spring.

The Bear and the Bow

The original working title of Pixar’s Brave, which hit theaters this weekend, was The Bear and the Bow.  Losing that strong and memorable title for a buzz word is only the first hiccup and portends trouble to come in a pre-production schedule that was plagued by delays and disappointments.  The most glaring and possibly damning of which was the outright firing of the screenwriter and first-for-Pixar woman director, Brenda Chapman.

Monsters University Teaser

It was only a teaser, so here is my short impression of the Monsters University: Ever since the original film dropped, I’ve been looking forward to a possible sequel. It is set up for a great sequel better than any Pixar film has been since the company’s inception, with the exception of maybe The Incredibles.

So, what we have here is a prequel, which is already disappointing. It is a cute idea to set them in their college years, and I am certain that Pixar will eventually release a quality product, but I’m still disappointed in the direction they decided to take with this film.
