Jarrod Fairclough – The Disney Channel are about to premiere a new show called Amphibia, unfortunately not starring our favorite frog. They have, however, brought him on as a consultant in this new clip!
The video is… fine. Matt Vogel is doing a superb job, and there are a couple of pretty funny lines, but it feels odd having Kermit promote something that isn’t Muppety. Like, who is this for? Is this just a promotional tactic to get Muppet fans talking about it? If so – well played. But if Disney want to use The Muppets for something, maybe they should actually make something a little more substantial. Yes, they’ve shot some shorts for Disney+, but in the interim this is all we’re getting? That’s kind of a kick in the head. (We’ve also heard rumblings that the Josh Gad series for Disney+ is no longer going ahead, though we can’t confirm either way at this time).
Kermit also did a ‘React’ video to the show’s opening titles. Again, it’s… fine.
