Muppets get their own Hollywood star


The Muppets were honored with their own star on the storied Hollywood Walk of Fame, right outside the theater where their recent movie was made and premiered. Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and the rest of the puppet gang gathered in front of the El Capitan Theatre. “We are just really happy to be on Hollywood Boulevard today, joining some of the greatest names in show biz,” said Kermit as the Muppet star was unveiled on the stellar stretch of sidewalk visited by millions of tourists. Key scenes from their recent movie ‘The Muppets’ were filmed at Disney’s El Capitan theatre, where its world premiere was held followed by festive season screenings of the film preceded by an in-theater Muppet show.
