It's Time To Meet The Muppets From The Upcoming New Movie

Entertainment Weekly have provided the first image from James Bobin's 'The Muppets,' from a script by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, It stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and the Muppets.

The article mentions that a new Muppet will feature in the film called Walter (who you can see holding the smartphone below). He's described as "a sweet, slightly naive twenty-something Everypuppet who, in the movie, is the best friend and roommate of Segel's character, Gary. Both Gary and Walter are die-hard Muppet fans."

"Walter is the kind of guy who faints when he sees Kermit," Bobin told the magazine. "Walter has a little bit of a self-confidence issue because he's the only person like him that he's seen aside from the Muppets," Segel explained. "His dream is to meet the Muppets and be around people who are like him."

EW says that when Gary and Walter learn that the Muppet Theater is in danger of being torn down, they set out to save it by reuniting Kermit, Piggy, and the entire troupe to stage an old-fashioned extravaganza.
