Disney+ goes meta with new ‘Muppets Now’ trailer and press release

Muppets Now gets into the Zoom-call groove with a new trailer.

Disney+ is set to release the first new Muppets material in some time and today there’s a brand new trailer to enjoy. They’ve already released a trailer for the series set to debut on Friday, July 31. Check it out below which features the Muppets preparing for the new season much like we all prepare these days via a Zoom call.

Along with the trailer came a press release–read the official Disney+ press release below–whicih has quotes from the stars of the Muppet Show!

“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.”
