Among the many highlights in The Muppets, the songs are amazing. We can thank Bret McKenzie, one of the premier comedic songwriters working today as one half of Flight of the Conchords, for much of that: he contributed several songs to the soundtrack, including certain Oscar nominee “Life’s a Happy Song.” McKenzie is on the promotional circuit to discuss his excellent work on the movie, where he talked about two other projects of interest. McKenzie has a small role as an elf in The Hobbit, and we’ll get to that. First, though, a Flight of the Conchords movie? Said McKenzie:
“We’re gonna try and do a movie. We just need a story.”
Yes, please. More after the jump.
