The late 1970's hit is coming back to the screen with star appearances, classic sketches, and original songs that are sure to have each generation feeling nostalgic.
The Muppets Franchise
Almost everyone has heard of the legendary group, The Muppets. The original sketch comedy show was only the catalyst for decades of various films and television series featuring the ragtag bunch.
The Muppets have catered to every age group. From their most recent film, Muppets Most Wanted (2014) starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey, to their program for toddlers Muppet Babies (2018-present), the group has proved time and time again, they can do it all.
They Can't Wait to Be Back!
The whole gang is very excited to come back to the screen and introduce a whole new generation to the beginnings of The Muppets. Kermit the Frog states,
"It's going to be great to welcome back longtime fans, and to give a new generation of fans a chance to see how we got our start, how Miss Piggy became a star and so much more."
A History of Stars
Fans will be able to watch some of Hollywood's biggest stars kick it with The Muppets back in the day. The Muppets have guest starred greats such as Elton John, Steve Martin, Julie Andrews, Alice Cooper, Diana Ross, and so many more.

As Kermit said,
"Today, I'm proud to say: 'It's time to play the music, light the lights and meet the Muppets on Disney Plus tonight!' And as for Statler and Waldorf, the two old guys in the balcony, I can only add: 'Sorry, guys, but….here we go again."
