Everyone in Hollywood knew that Jason Segel’s day hosting Saturday Night Live would come. The work he did to bring the Muppets back to the silver screen after a 12 year absence only served as a little bit of an accelerator. If you missed the… Read More »The Muppets Help Jason Segel Open Saturday Night Live
We wrote previously about the Kermit Kicks from adidas and now Mike B. from the new BigScreenAnimation.com blog and frequent guest writer here on The Disney Blog has chimed in with a short positive review. I got my pair of the mens Kermits yesterday and… Read More »Kermit adidas Tennis Shoes Get High Marks
When we shared with you the final parody trailer from the folks behind the marketing for Disney’s The Muppets, we thought we were done with the parodies. But it turns out at least one more film finds itself skewered by the sharp minds behind the… Read More »The Muppets Have at Least One More Parody to Share
I’m really loving these Muppet themed shoes from Adidas. Part of the adidas Originals line, they come in mens and kids styles.

Hello, and welcome to the D23 Expo, Day 2 (for more expo coverage read my D23 Expo Day 1 and Alison’s D23 Expo Day 3 recaps!) where things were taken up a big ol’ notch. I know, I couldn’t believe it either.
This is where you say, “How in the world did they top the first day? Nothing could be sweeter than Kermit the Frog and Rowlf the Dog singing a tribute to the late, great Jim Henson! Nothing could be better than Dick Van Dyke in concert!
Fair enough. However, where Day 1 was a tip of the hat to Disney legends, Day 2 was about the now and the immediate future.

My inner geek setting was at 11.
If you read one thing today, make it this thought provoking article on Jim Henson’s The Muppets and the journey they’ve been on since Henson’s untimely death.

I’m really loving the marketing strategy for Disney The Muppets movie. The latest teaser trailer is “Being Green” which is, of course, a perfect spoof on the Green Lantern movie. Brilliant! Can’t wait to see what’s next.
I was going to do this big write up on the Pirates Of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides World Premiere Red Carpet event, but my invitation must have gotten lost in the mail. I’m sure Disney will get it right next time. Luckily Disney has… Read More »Kermit The Frog Covers Pirates World Premiere
