The Muppets: All aboard a Conchord

Frustratingly for those of us in the UK, Disney are holding back the new Muppet Movie until February next year. In the States, however, its hitting cinemas on Christmas Day and the reviews, which started coming out over the weekend, have been overwhelmingly positive.

The film's directed by James Bobin, who put together cult musical sitcom Flight Of The Conchords for HBO, and he's roped in ex-Conchord Bret McKenzie to write the film's original songs. The opening number is Life's A Happy Song, and here's Kermit doing an acoustic performance with McKenzie for the New York Times.

If that's got you excited for the film, it's only 79 days to go before we get to see the real thing :(
