The Muppets (2011) begins with their worldâ€™s greatest fan and his friends who discover the Muppet Theater will be completely destroyed. Gary and Mary from Smalltown, USA have packed together to help the muppets. They donâ€™t want to see the building destroyed just for oil. The people drilling for oil could care less about the Muppets Theater.
What would all the kids do if the theatre was destroyed? How about the adults that grew up enjoying the muppets as children. They still watched The Muppets and even showed the movie to their children. There were so many issues with the theater being razed and they had to do something about it.
In this movie plot, the problem is that they must come up with $10 million in order to save their theater. Walter, Mary and Gary work together to bring the Muppets back together in a reunion. Before this, they had all parted and went on to live separate lives. Fozzie was now performing in a casino within Reno (his band was called Moppets) and Miss Piggy works as a plus-size fashion editor at a company called Vogue Paris. Animal is working for an anger management class while Gonzo is in the plumbing industry.
Now the Muppets (2011) must pack together in order to stop this madness. After all, they are not forgotten by fans – they just moved into different career paths. With Kermit as the leader in the group, they search for a solution to save the theater.
