    There were quite a few celebrity cameos in the original 3 movies, and it seems to be a tradition. The only real difference was the film was marketed with more star power (at least in the US) than most of them. MupOz boldly states it features Ashanti. Actually, all the fairy tale movies heavily feature the human stars, but only Oz had the cameos.

    I definitely want the story to focus on the Muppets themselves this time. They already went through the getting the band back together plot that, let's face it, they needed to do. Humans should be second string even if they're important to the plot... Doc Hopper, The Holidays, Jenny and Pete.... a co-existance that isn't dominating.

    They probably won't announce the release date till their done filming. And I'm optismistic of a 2013 release. The last film was suppose to be released in Dec and they bumped the date up to Nov. We'll just have to wait and see. But I am fully confident! :)

    Since they will be in England, I'd love to see Rowan Atkinson make a cameo but given he's moving on to more serious acting roles these days, I can't imagine he'd want to take part in any Mr. Bean-like shenanigans.

    Where and when did he say this? :)

    During the D23 Q&A in NYC. Phillip posted the video in the thread. Kermit mentioned everything from shooting in Jan to them being over in London for about 4 months. Like I said if Kermit says so than that's all I need to hear. :)

    Switch Whoopi and NPH, and I'm cool with that arrangement.

    Is there even the slightest possibility of Frank Oz being involved? I heard that he didn't like the last movie because it wasn't as hard-edged or witty as the original Muppet movies. Here's hoping that he has a cameo of some sort.
    Have there been any recent details regarding the plot of the new movie?

    Also, I was very happy to see obscure Muppets like Wayne and Wanda, Thog, and Marvin Suggs in the last movie from 2011. I would like to see even more of those characters...like the Newsman was supposed to have a scene in the 2011 movie, but apparently it was cut. I'd like to see the Newsman, Beauregard, Pops, Link, Dr. Strangepork, Crazy Harry, and others have at least two or three lines to speak...

    newsman had a scene during the credits and during when the phones die

    That's right, I forgot that part with the phones...

    For some reason, I always thought that Bill Barretta and then Dave Goelz took over the Newsman after Jim's death, because Jim plays Rowlf & Dr. Teeth, who have that same rough quality to their voices that the Newsman have. Then I thought Dave took over around the late 2000s because he performs Waldorf, who also sounds like the Newsman. I just recently learned that Steve Whitmire has been the main performer of the Newsman for the past five years. Heh, that was quite a news flash for me.:news:

    Jerry Nelson performed him back in 1996 for a CD-ROM game, and Brian Henson briefly performed him for The Muppet Show Live and Muppet Party Cruise. That was the only time Brian took over one of his dad's characters.

    Frank probably won't be involved. While it's said his not being involved in the last movie was becasue he didn't like the script, I think it's really because he's just so busy these days with directing. I wouldn't expect him to return to the Muppets, but that's okay. As for him not liking it, I think he said that he liked the final version. He most likely didn't like the draft that was given to him, which is understandable. Early drafts were in great need of changes.

    I'm now kind of hoping Whoopi has a cameo not only because it's become a bit of a quasi tradition but also just to muck with the people not wanting it.:p

    I'm sure i probably said it before but i REALLY want to see the Jerry Nelson Muppet in it.

    Speaking of cameos/human casting, isn't it kind of odd how a month away from filming there hasn't been much news about human casting/cameos compared to how much news there was going into the previous film's shoot? Not that i'm complaining...less humans = more Muppet screentime plus given that the previous film was largely about the Hollywood setting, lots of celeb cameos was better suited for it.

    I'd like to see Alice Cooper come back. A nice little Muppet/Cooper reunion.

    I think it would be fun to see Alice Cooper make a cameo on SST...so Big Bird can accidentally call him "Mr. Hooper."

    I'd rather see Whoopi than ever having Rob "Derp de derr" Schnider in a Muppet film ever again. I wish that they signed a restraining order against him after Muppets From Space. He shouldn't even shoot a film in the same studio as a Muppet... though, that doesn't seem too much of a problem these days.

    I dunno about anyone else, but I do NOT want cameo news. First off, I want everything to be a surprise (like that's going to happen). But mostly because last time we heard cameos, half of them were false, and then half of what remained were slashed out of the film and not even on the Blu Ray extras. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised by a cameo by someone who I didn't know was going to be in the film than mildly disappointed that someone who I was expecting to be in the film in a lost sequence.

    Ricky Gervais. You know it needs to happen. Though I'm guessing Russel Brand is a big possibility.
