The Muppet Movie is coming back to theaters for its 40th anniversary

 The Muppets are all coming back to movie theaters to celebrate the 40th anniversary of their first feature film The Muppet Movie.

After the massive success of the 1970s television series The Muppet Show, creator Jim Henson took things to the next level and placed his beloved Muppets in their first feature film.

Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and his chicken Camilla, Scooter, and Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem take a road trip to Hollywood with dreams of fame and fortune

The Muppet Movie was a massive box office hit, and it was Oscar nominated for the film’s iconic theme song “The Rainbow Connection,” as performed by Kermit with music and lyrics by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher. The film also featured a litany of major Hollywood stars, including Charles Durning, Dom DeLuise, James Coburn, Madeline Kahn, Carol Kane, Elliot Gould, Bob Hope, Richard Pryor, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Cloris Leachman, and Orson Welles.

The Muppet Movie will be in theaters across the U.S. on Thursday, July 25, 2019 and Tuesday, July 30, 2019. The film will play at 12:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. local time each of those days in more than 700 movie theaters nationwide.
