Kermit the Frog Delivers News About Disney Plus’ ‘Muppets Now’ Via Fun Video Chat
The Muppets do things their way.
Disney+ just released a “Muppets Now” video chat, hosted by Kermit the Frog, which sends up Zoom calls, PowerPoint presentations and legal issues.
The show premieres on July 31.
Note: It consists of six half-hour “Muppisodes.” New episodes will be released every Friday.
The big news: “Muppets Now” is the first streaming show for the Muppets. It will include various guest stars, such as Seth Rogen, RuPaul and Aubrey Plaza of “Parks and Recreation.”
A Muppet character named Joe From Legal says the show contains “nonfiction and unscripted elements,” such as games, interviews, cooking and science.
Miss Piggy shares: “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.’”
The cast includes Miss Piggy, Beaker, Camilla, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo the Great, Kermit the Frog, Pepe the King Prawn, The Swedish Chef, Scooter and Uncle Deadly.
“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,” adds Kermit the Frog.
