After months of information and speculation as what Disney's new live Muppet show would look like, we now have our answers!
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and The Great Gonzo arrived yesterday at Magic Kingdom Park for the debut of the all-new, live show “The Muppets Present… Great Moments in American History.” Hosted by James “J.J.” Jefferson, town crier of Liberty Square, and Sam Eagle, the fiercely patriotic American eagle who is forever trying to set a high moral standard for the Muppets, this wacky new show is set to take place several times daily, just outside The Hall of Presidents.
J.J. and the Muppets share their own unique take on the founding fathers as they recount the tale of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, complete with an original song and plenty of humor. At other times, you may catch the Muppets’ version of the midnight ride of Paul Revere, presented in hysterical fashion as only they can.
We can now confirm that:
Yes, the official Muppet performers are involved using in pre-recorded audio.
Yes, the Disney cast members performing the characters have been trained to get each character's mannerisms down
And yes, you can now watch both stories in full below!
