Mitchell Stein – We’ve finally got our first look at Muppets Now, the upcoming series debuting exclusively on Disney+ on July 31st! Disney debuted this trailer today, showcasing just a few of the celebrities that will appear and the hilarity that will ensure in these six episodes arriving every Friday.
Along with the new trailer, we’ve also learned many details about the show’s general plot and humor, shared courtesy of Disney Plus.
In a true first for the studio, “Muppets Now” is an unscripted series filled with improv comedy, off-the-cuff gags, and the Muppets’ celebrity friends. In the six-episode season, Scooter rushes to make his delivery deadlines and upload the brand-new Muppet series for streaming. They are due now, and he’ll need to navigate whatever obstacles, distractions, and complications the rest of the Muppets throws at him.
Overflowing with spontaneous lunacy, surprising guest stars and more frogs, pigs, bears (and whatevers) than legally allowed, the Muppets cut loose in “Muppets Now” with the kind of startling silliness and chaotic fun that made them famous. From zany experiments with Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker to lifestyle tips from the fabulous Miss Piggy, each episode is packed with hilarious segments, hosted by the Muppets showcasing what the Muppets do best.
Check out the trailer below to see everything permitted for viewing by Joe the Legal Weasel, and start counting down the days until July 31st!
