Muppets filming at Disneyland for 2010 promotional campaign

As you know the Muppets were all around Disneyland this week for Disneyland's next promotional campaign filming. They still will be in the park in the next days, but as Al Lutz on Mice Age told us "there's been much more of it taking place overnight inside popular attractions with many elaborate setups. What has been seen out in the park during the day is just the tip of the iceberg for the new Disneyland campaign coming in 2010".

This first video is a short sequence filmed in front of the castle.

On this next video, the Muppets filming takes place on the Columbia and the Mark Twain.

Now, of course, the big question is: why Disney is using the Muppets for the future Disneyland campaign? Hopefully we may have the answer soon, and when it'll be on line i'll let you know.

Back in the 70's WED was invited through Peggy Van Pelt, a puppeteir herself, to a Special showing of Jim Hensons puppets in Los Angeles where they were performing. I think that was before he was even on TV with his show. So it great to see this connection and union still going strong. I need a new battery for my Kermit watch.

i believe the second video takes place on the Mark Twain, not the Columbia.

Ooops, you're right, I am going to change that right now.

Rivers of America was based on Mark Twains writings which involved jumping frogs, so Kermit should feel at home.
