The Muppets – Kermit And The Gang Are Coming Back; Yeah!

by Yo Snyder

You know, there are a lot of good looking movies coming out this holiday season, but I’d have to say that The Muppets is top on my list of must-sees. I mean, it’s been forever since we’ve had a proper Muppets movie; the underrated Muppets from Space being the last, and that was way back in 1999. I still enjoy watching The Muppet Show
with my kids, and I’m amazed at that show’s ability to entertain and
appeal to both adults and kids so equally. Will the new movie capture
that same magic? Is there still room in today’s darker, more cynical
world for the positive, up-beat fun of Kermit and the gang? We’ll find
out this Thanksgiving, but if the latest trailers is any indication, it
looks like the wait will be worth it.
