“Game of Thrones” is an epic fantasy series. “The Muppets” are cultural icons. It seems only natural for these two to hook up. We’ve got a mashup for you from artist Yehudi Mercado that will have you ready to re-watch Kermit and friends get the old gang back together and get you more excited (if that’s even possible) for the April 1st premiere of “Game of Thrones.”
We’ve got Miss Piggy as Cersei Piggister, Janice as Jaenerice Targaryn, Kermit as Kermit the Stark … our minds are blown. Check out all the rest here. They are brilliant. Want to guess who plays Drogo? This goes along perfectly with the movie spoof trailers that “The Muppets” used to get us excited for the film.
“The Muppets” is up for Best Song, with Bret McKenzie‘s “Man or Muppet.” The Academy decided that the two songs up for the award will not be performed at the ceremony. A crime in our opinion. Who doesn’t want to see Jason Segel and Walter on stage? Director Judd Apatow took to Twitter to express his displeasure. “The Oscars doing their best to make sure you won’t have to listen to any Muppets,” he wrote, before later adding, “we need to start a riot.” Check out our interview with McKenzie here.
