With director James Bobin’s The Muppets getting released tomorrow, it’s finally time to start posting the video interviews I got to do with the cast and filmmakers. If you’re a Muppets fan, every day this week I’ll be posting a new interview. Yesterday I posted my conversation with Amy Adams and today I’ve got Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. But before getting to the interview, as I’ve said a few times, I absolutely loved The Muppets. It’s one of my favorite films of the year and it not only made me laugh, it also made me cry. If you were nervous about the movie…don’t be. It’s a huge home run.
As you might imagine, getting to speak with Kermit and Miss Piggy was one of the coolest things I’ve done in my life. In fact, in the six years of doing interviews on Collider, I’ve never been as nervous to talk with anyone. That includes David Fincher and Christopher Nolan. During the interview, Kermit and Miss Piggy talked about their reaction to seeing the finished film, their relationship since the movie wrapped, who was the most difficult to work with on set, what’s their karaoke songs, and what are the chances of The Muppet Show coming back to TV. Hit the jump to watch and make sure to see The Muppet this week.
Finally, here’s Matt’s glowing review of The Muppets.
