Anyway, in more exciting muppet music news, it's been announced that Bret McKenzie -- the shorter half of Flight of the Conchords -- has been hired as music supervisor and is working with writer Jason Segel on songs for the film. And McKenzie seems to be enjoying his time.
“It was really unexpected. We were in the studio recording Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy. It was a very surreal experience," he said. That's all fine and dandy, but I just hope Kermit asks Piggy if she's into it.
For those who haven't been following the news, The Muppets Movie (which is still a working title) is shaping up to be awesome. Not only did Segel write it with Nicholas Stoller, he's starring with an all-star cast. Plus, Zach Galifianakis will make a cameo, along with Ricky Gervais and Emily Blunt, and then, who knows, probably everyone else in Hollywood
