With the launch of Muppets Now only a few short weeks away, Disney+ has released a new and rather unique trailer to promote the upcoming original series.
As Muppets Now is set to arrive on Disney+ on July 31, 2020, Disney decided to whet our appetites by revealing a new, funny trailer that shows how the Muppets themselves reacted to the news that Muppets Now would be happening. Set up as a video chat, most of the Muppets you know and love are featured as details of the show are discussed.
“The Muppets are thrilled to be doing our first-ever unscripted show! It’s going to be extremely spontaneous and very surprising; almost as surprising as the fact that we ever actually used a script in the past.”
- Kermit the Frog
“This is moi unfiltered, unexpurgated, and more unbelievably fabulous than ever. If you watch only one show on Disney+ ,you really should tune in more often. But whenever you watch, make it moi on Muppets Now.”
- Miss Piggy
“For the first time ever, I’m working without a joke book, folks. It’s a new kind of totally improvised comedy I call ‘bare bear’! See what I did there? Ahh! Wocka! Wocka!”
- Fozzie Bear
“I knew Muppets Now was coming to Disney+ but I did NOT know they wanted Muppets Now NOW, as in right away, as in “doesn’t anybody give a warning around here’!? Gotta go upload those episodes pronto! Wish me luck; I’ll need it.”
This season’s celebrity guests include entertainers, comedians, chefs, and more. Fans won’t want to miss all-new improvised comedy segments from their favorite Muppets including Miss Piggy, Beaker, Camilla, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo the Great, Kermit the Frog, Pepe the King Prawn, The Swedish Chef, Scooter, Uncle Deadly, among others.
Muppets Now will premiere on Disney+ on July 31, 2020, with new episodes releasing every Friday.
