‘The Muppets’ Trailer Debuts, Posing As Rom-Com ‘Green With Envy’

Oh boy oh boy oh boy oh boy! After a tremendous amount of build-up, The Muppets is actually happening — because now, we have a trailer to prove it! Hidden behind a rom-com mask called Green With Envy (which has a poster and all — check it out below), the film stars Jason Segel (who also wrote it), Amy Adams, Chris Cooper and contains a slew of celebrity cameos, including Rashida Jones and Zach Galifianakis. Here’s the official synopsis:

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 house 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.
