Disney has had some trouble figuring out what to do with Jim Henson’s greatest creation, The Muppets. They attempted a comeback on television with a fake-style comedy series on ABC after their popularity increased after two new movies, but it didn’t last long. Her latest comeback attempt comes at Disney + with a new series called Muppets Now. This could be just what the doctor ordered, as it involves impromptu comedy, candid discussions between Muppets and celebrity guests, and lots of family pranks. Test the new series in the Muppets Now trailer below.
Muppets Now Trailer
The great attraction of this series is that it apparently has no script. While we’re sure that’s the case when it comes to Muppets interacting with famous guests like Aubrey Square, RuPaul and Seth Rogen, appearing in the trailer, there are probably plenty of scripted elements involved as well, especially when you see the experiments that Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker show in this brief teaser of the show.
The atmosphere of this show is perfect for The Muppets, including Joe’s additional meta-element from the legal department that dictates what they can and cannot say about the show. But I’ll say one thing in this trailer that still doesn’t sit well with me is that voice for Kermit the Frog. The actor behind Kermit is now Matt Vogel, and he’s not as good as the previous voice actor Steve Whitmire. Kermit’s voice sounds a little too deep and not nasal enough, if that’s the best way to describe the frog’s voice. There is only something that is off But this is a detail that we have to accept as new artists join to keep these characters alive.
Muppets Now will be available on Disney + from July 31, 2020.
In a true first for the studio, “Muppets Now” is an unscripted series filled with improvisational comedy, wacky jokes, and famous Muppet friends. In the six-episode season, Scooter rushes to meet deadlines and upload the new Muppet series for broadcast. Should be now, and you will have to overcome any obstacle, distraction and complication that the rest of the Muppets throw at you. Bursting with spontaneous insanity, startling guest stars, and more legally permitted frogs, pigs, bears (and whatever), the Muppets were unleashed on “Muppets Now” with the kind of surprising nonsense and chaotic amusement that made them famous. From wacky experiments with Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker to lifestyle advice from the fabulous Miss Piggy, each episode is filled with fun segments, presented by the Muppets that show what Muppets do best.
