‘Muppets Now’ Is Heading to Disney+ This Summer
A new series, Muppets Now, is heading our way this summer!
If you’re anything like us, one of your favorite attractions at Disney World is Muppetvision 3D. We love getting a few moments to laugh with our favorite muppets and feel like we’re totally immersed in an experience with them. We grew up watching the Muppets, laughing with them – so when we saw a special announcement from Disney+ this week – we were thrilled.
Lights! Music! Muppets! …Unscripted! Get ready to see your favorite characters like never before in #MuppetsNow, an Original Series, coming July 31 only on #DisneyPlus. #DisneyBundle pic.twitter.com/1gLtOx3ckl

Disney first mentioned the project at its D23 expo last year, however, not much else was voiced about the show at the time. EW recently revealed a bit more about Muppets Now. Fans will follow along for 6 episodes focused on Scooter being responsible for uploading those half a dozen episodes. Of course, hilarity will ensue alongside hijinks and a lot of moments sure to bring us the lighthearted comedy we all need right now.
Some of our favorite characters took to Twitter to share the news after the official announcement – however, they weren’t too sure about the above official key art.

Wait, I thought we were going with this #MuppetsNow key art! Didn't we all agree it needs more chickens?? And more exploding socks… and, of course, lava spiders. pic.twitter.com/8egBdUNd8K

Dr. Bunsen Honeydew here. My research shows that using this #MuppetsNow art would yield impressive results. After all, it was created by Muppet Labs, where the future of key art is being made today! pic.twitter.com/uYuOatQ9zB
