Are you curious about the new Disney+ original series Prop Culture, but don’t know what to expect? Look no further because a new clip from the show hosted by film historian and prop collector Dan Lanigan provides the perfect taste of what you will see over the course of eight episodes.
The fun and illuminating new clip from Prop Culture features Lanigan checking out two incredible props from the 1979 feature The Muppet Movie. The props in question? The actual Kermit puppet operated by Jim Henson as well as the headband worn by Henson which held the microphone he spoke into when he recited Kermit’s dialogue during his performance. Film buffs will no doubt share Lanigan’s delight and wonder listening to the history behind these two key props which helped bring The Muppets Movie to life.
The Kermit-centric clip should give intrigued, potential Prop Culture a good idea of what they can expect to see over the course of the first season’s eight episodes. As revealed in the trailer, Prop Culture sees Lanigan revisiting and interacting with props from some of his favorite Disney movies, including Mary Poppins, Tron, Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Who Framed Roger Rabbit?, and of course The Muppet Movie. Along the way, Lanigan will be joined by actors who appeared in some of these movies (keep an eye out for a special appearance from Christopher Lloyd, y’all) as they interact with some of their old props and share memories from filming.
