Capturing the magic of the original Muppets, this film introduces these classic characters to a whole new generation and brings nostalgia to the forefront for the old. Muppet Theatre is closed and the Muppets don’t seem to care, until super-fan Walter and his brother Gary inspire them to fight for their old home. The songs are catchy, the plot is entertaining, and the humour and whimsy that characterized the Muppets is intact. New Muppet, Walter, is a perfect addition to the ensemble and is bound to become a classic himself. His hope is infectious and his hidden talent revealed at the end is well worth the wait. If you liked the classic Muppets, this movie will not disappoint.
