“Muppets” exclusive clip features new character Walter


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Despite the onslaught of “Muppet” marketing leading up to the film’s Nov. 23 release, in which Jim Henson’s creations spoofed everything from “The Green Lantern” to “The Hangover Part II,” we haven’t seen a whole lot with Walter, the new character created for this movie who acts a catalyst for the plot. But a new clip finally puts Walter in the spotlight, if only for a moment.

Posted on Yahoo Movies, this clip features Walter and his best friend (Jason Segel) as they plan a trip to California. Their adventure will find them fighting to save the theater in which the original Muppets show was filmed.

It’s shaping up to be a meta movie-within-a-movie concept, overrun with cameos. Much like the year-long string of teaser trailers that established the new film’s tone.

This clip’s still my favorite. As they say, it’s a parody of their own parody trailer. “We’ve taken this as far as it will go.” Very clever.

Now bring on the movie. “The Muppets” returns Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Animal and the rest of the puppet clan to theaters. It opens everywhere on Nov. 23.
