I first got interested in this when I looked at the poster one more time and realized there were two Kermits—only the eyes of one were oriented differently! And looking at the trailer, I see Constantine's neck fronds are shorter, and, oh, come on, they look nothing alike, guys.
I had my doubts about this film, but this time, it feels more like a true original idea than just a pop culture rehash.
Australian Trailer's also got a lot of difference to it
"Lights back on! You have to wait until I'm liek out of the hallway!"
Looks really funny and glad to see Rizzo speaking again.
I was wondering at first why Walter was there, but then I realized he was just playing Jason Siegel's brother in the first movie.

Or it's a sequel.
Which is right.
Plus, it would make sense wouldn't it? At the end of the first movie, he joined the Muppets, and therefore, left Gary.

And he is played by Peter Linz, a regular muppeteer, instead of a celebrity.

Which is good because celebrities tend to make awful puppeteers.
Caught the trailer when I saw Frozen today, while it looks fun, like with Despicable Me I thought it might be a Carmen Sandiego movie. Once again I was disappointed.
Maybe you'd be less disappointed if you stopped expecting things to be Carmen Sandiego movies.

:D For some reason, that made me laugh.
If I ever changed my signature, I would totally change it to that.
It's alright, I did it.

We'd be less disappointed if there really was a Carmen Sandiego movie, but I don't know how such a thing would work.
^ An Affectionate Parody of globetrotting spy/suspense movies? I actually imagine a Carmen Sandiego movie would be kind of like the original Pink Panther movie in tone - but with more locations and slightly more competent good guys.
Seeing a live action Carmen Sandiego movie without Lynne Thigpen as The Chief would make me sad, though.

The first song's been released, and it's delightful, self-deprecating, and delightfully self-deprecating. If every song in this film is half as good as this one, this is definitely gonna be a fantastic film.
So they're playing more and more TV spots on TV.
I dunno. I am not feeling the excitement I got from seeing the same things for The Muppets. I can attribute this to 2 things:
The last thing's lampshaded in "We're Doing a Sequel"—"there's no need to disguise / The studio considers us a viable franchise." Basically, now that everyone's on board, there's no need for the promos to try as hard, and we can get back to the business of the Muppets being the Muppets.
And besides, Louise Gold is back as Annie Sue. If bringing back a character and a puppeteer unseen for decades isn't "really upping the nostalgia factor for old fans", than what is?

I admit I did watch that AFTER I wrote that whole thing. :D So now that makes me feel better.
Naturally, the video says nothing about Louise Gold returning, or her character at all.

I get the distinct impression it's supposed to be one of those "Marion Ravenwood's in Indiana Jones 4" things. Pretty much an open secret, but the studio for whatever reason is pretending it'll be a surprise.
40% on Rotten Tomatoes. Then again, it's just 3 out of 5 reviews, so maybe the rating will get better.
One of the negative review's main quote on the page is the reviewer bemoaning the fact that this isn't a Human-Focused Adaptation. I'm not worried.
