Your fans never left you, the world hasn't forgotten! Sure it's impossible, but we've got to try. It's time to play the music...
These are the first words that any of us will ever hear Walter speak... and they are the most appropriate things he could possibly say. We have to assume that Walter is talking to a down-trodden Kermit in this moment, reminding him of why he's important. We are the fans that never left, we are part of the reason why the world hasn't forgotten. And with this first official full-length trailer for The Muppets, it's easy for me to see that this film is turning out to be a major love letter to fans like you and me. Keep reading our nearly shot-for-shot breakdown of the trailer below to find out how this love letter is being written.
That's about it for this trailer... but no matter how much time I spend over-analyzing these trailers for these breakdowns, I always make sure I go back immediately after I'm done and watch it all the way through again, just to witness the magic. Because that's what this trailer has shown us: Muppet magic, returning for the first time in who knows how long. So I'm off to watch the trailer once again, and I suggest you do the same.
Muppet Domination is coming... make your necessary preparations.
