In case you somehow missed it, there’s a new Muppet film coming out early next month, and at HeyUGuys, we’ve gone a little bit Muppet-crazy. On Friday we live-blogged the press conference, where Kermit, Miss Piggy and director James Bobin discussed the film. In the next few days we will be posting a one-to-one interview with Miss Piggy, where I discuss with her the rumours of the Muppets hosting the Oscars, and we try to work out what the most despicable thing she has ever done. Today we’ve got coverage of the round table interview/mini-press conference with the trio, hosted by very manly Muppet, Chris Hewitt of Empire magazine.
We toyed with the idea of transcribing the interview, but even on my best days I’m nowhere near as funny as Kermit and co, and there’s no way a transcript would have done the justice to the experience. Instead, we’ve put up the audio from the interview for your listening pleasure.
When you listen you’ll be treated to Miss Piggy’s views on feminism, relationships and her rider, Kermit’s political ambitions, and speculation as to whether we’ll see the Muppets return to a regular TV slot any time soon. Of course, being the Muppets, what they say is very much secondary to how they say it, and it’s filled with jokes and wisecracks.
So start the music, light the lights, because right now it’s time to get things started with the HeyUGuys Muppet podcast.
The Muppets is released in the UK 10th February.
