On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter (Peter Linz), the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds.
To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets, as Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and Animal have all gone their separate ways.
Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate and Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management.
With secret, signature, celebrity cameos THE MUPPETS is being released by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
