A while back we were treated to a sneak peak at Disney’s The Muppets, starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams, but the teaser revealed hardly anything about the film.

Finally we are now able to get a far more comprehensive look at the flick thanks to the first official trailer and things are looking good for a franchise which should have been resurrected a lot sooner than this.

The Muppets synopsis is as follows:

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends  Gary (Segel) and Mary (Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover  the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the  Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the  Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon  Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary  and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their  separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band  called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue  Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and  Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.
