I was totally bummed when The Muppets came out in theaters and my daughter was too young to go see it. I grew up with the Muppets, from the Muppet Show to Muppet Babies, and I just knew she would love it! we first introduced her to the Muppets when we were in Disney and they have the 3-D show. She fell in love with them right away, so when she saw this Wocka Wocka pack arrive in the mail she was very excited... and so was I!
In The Muppets we are introduced to a new character, Walter, and his brother, Fred. These two have one of those relationships that you hope your children will have with each other. They do everything together and are not only brothers but also best friends. But Walter is a little bit different then Fred. He doesn't really fit in. But then he sees the Muppets on tv and becomes an instant fan!
This movie takes you on the exciting, funny, and touching journey Walter finding his place in life. When his dream comes true of visiting the Muppet studios he learns that something terrible is going to happen to the studio. He sets out to find Kermit the Frog to let him know what terrible plans are coming together for the old Muppet Studios.
Walter, Fred, Fred's girlfriend, and Kermit set out to find the old gang and try to save the studio by putting on one last show. You get to see what each character is up to now that the gang is not together. The journey these guys take to get back to the studio and try to put on a show is full of laughs. It's also very heartfelt and you can feel how much they all mean to each other. I'll admit it.... I cried at certain points.
This really is a must-see movie. From the famous, lovable characters to the love triangle between Fred, Mary, and Walter, to the daunting feat these Muppets face of putting on a show in such a short amount of time. You will love it from beginning to end and be asking for more!
