Don't be grouchy. The new Muppet movie is closer than you think (what's four months in Muppet time, after all) and to prove it, the folks at Disney have released an international poster for the movie -- appropriately titled 'The Muppets' -- to go along with the trailers and clips they've been trickling out for fans.

Where the first teaser-poster, shown here, was unusual in that it showed the Muppets with something they've never had before -- legs -- this poster, which you can see after the jump, is more traditional. But first, here's the plot:
On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world's biggest Muppet fan, and his friends Gary (Jason Segel) and Mary (Amy Adams) from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze the Muppet Theater and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets' former stomping grounds. To stage The Greatest Muppet Telethon Ever and raise the $10 million needed to save the theater, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate. With secret, signature, celebrity cameos, 'The Muppets' hits the big screen Nov. 23, 2011.
