The Muppets is a 2011 American musical and comedy film, and the first Muppets theatrical release in 12 years, as well as the first Disney-produced Muppets film since 1996’s Muppet Treasure Island. In the film, Walter (performed by Peter Linz), the world’s biggest Muppet fan, and his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and friend Mary (Amy Adams) must raise $10 million to save the Muppet Theater from Tex Richman (Chris Cooper), a businessman who plans to demolish the Muppet Theater to drill for oil.

Plot: Oil has been discovered beneath the Muppet Theater and oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) plans to raze the Muppet Theater and Muppets Studio to drill oil. The world’s biggest Muppet fan is Gary’s brother Walter who overhears Tex Richman’s plan and tells Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams). Together, they try to stop Tex by staging The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever, raising $10 million needed to save the theater. In order to stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever, Walter, Mary, and Gary must help Kermit the Frog reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways. Fozzie Bear now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a clinic for celebrity anger management, and Gonzo is a powerful plumbing magnate.
