    Walt Disney released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming The Muppets movie which will hit the theaters on November 23 this year. The new teaser was released in conjunction with Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides over the weekend and it takes the audience to look back into the nostalgia of the Jim Henson's muppets like Kermit the Frog, Gonzo and Miss Piggy. You can watch the trailer below:

    Here is the official synopsis as provided by Disney:
    "On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy 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."

    In conjunction with the release of the trailer, Walt Disney also debuted the first poster for The Muppets:

    The movie stars Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Copper, Rashida Jones, voices behind The Muppets as well as notable cameo guests stars. The script was written by Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller, the writer-director team behind the 2008 film Forgetting Sarah Marshall. James Bobin, co-creator of the HBO series Flight of the Conchords, is directing the film and Bret McKenzie, co-star of Flight of the Conchords, has written the film's songs.

    NOTE: In May 2011, Kermit plugged the film in a web video reporting from the world premiere of Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides at Disneyland. The trailer for the movie was attached to the film. The trailer was promoted as a fake romantic comedy starring Adams and Segel entitled Green with Envy for the first half, with the Muppets appearing in the second half (much to the surprise of Segel). When uploaded online, the trailer was named as such, and Disney even created a faux poster for "Envy."
