Ah, now it all makes sense; the Muppets are behind The Hunger Games. Like a fast food meal, Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games is quickly consumed, initially satisfying and slightly embarrassing to admit having enjoyed. We should have known some sneakingly addictive puppeteer had a hand in it (insert Statler and Waldorf grumbling here).
The Electrified Fence:
The Elusive Mockingjay:
Lots of Panicked Running:
Okay, so maybe it’s just another spoof to promote The Muppets but it sort of makes me wish they’d act out the whole thing.
The Muppets will be out on DVD/Blu-ray March 20, 2012.
Cindy Davis “does not recall” whether or not she read The Hunger Games.
