Short, Comedy, Family / TV-Series (2020)
The Muppets are back with Disney+. The trailer has just been revealed for Muppets Now, a new short-form Muppets series debuting on Disney+ on July 31. And it looks good. With tons of celebrity guests and the trademark zany Muppet humor, it looks like this could be Disney’s funniest attempt at revitalizing the characters for a new audience.
At the core conceit of Muppets Now is that each Muppet has his or her own unscripted series. And celebrity guests are invited onto one of these shows and madness ensues. It’s a mixture of classic Muppets like Miss Piggy and Kermit and newer Muppets like Pepe and Walter, who was first introduced in 2011’s The Muppets movie.
