'The Muppets': Miss Piggy wants the EW cover
From time to time, Entertainment Weekly is lucky enough to host some of the most famous stars in the industry. But perhaps no special guests have ever created a bigger stir in our New York office than the Muppets, who swung by last week to promote the video release of their latest hit movie. At least that’s what we thought they were visiting to do. Walter actually came fishing for swag, in particular, an advance screener copy of the upcoming superhero spectacular, The Avengers. Miss Piggy had even more ambitious plans, and when she sets her mind to something, woe to the green frog or naive EW editors who stand in her way. Thankfully, cooler heads prevailed. Take a look.
For the record, yes, there is an Angry Birds movie in the works; no, they’re not our next cover; but yes, The Muppets did make our current Must List. (What choice did we have!)
The Muppets is available today on Blu-ray, DVD, and digital download. The Wocka Wocka Value Pack combines all three, and also features the film’s full-length original soundtrack and scores of extras, including an audio commentary from Jason Segel, James Bobin, and Nicholas Stoller, and the longest blooper reel in Muppet history.
