The crew is starring in their first Halloween special, “Muppet’s Haunted Mansion,” and Miss Piggy told CNN it’s a must-see.
“‘The Muppets Haunted Mansion’ is a wonderful family special that has creepy scares and a lot of fun,” she said. “It’s both.”
The action takes place on Halloween night, when Gonzo is challenged to spend a very adventurous night at the Haunted Mansion.
He told CNN that he did his own stunts.
“I’m always doing stunts, of course,” Gonzo said. “My dressing room is upstairs in a super structure and I just drop in every shot.”
Yvette Nicole Brown is one of the humans to star in the film, along with Chrissy Metz, Darren Criss, and the late Ed Asner.
Brown spoke about working on the special.
“As a kid who loved The Muppets and adored them into adulthood, getting this call was like a dream come true,” she said.
When asked what scares him the most, Brown quipped, “The infrastructure in America is not being repaired.”
“Wow, all of a sudden it’s heavy,” said Gonzo. “It’s serious now. I’ll do you one: climate change. Let’s go over it, people! Come on!”
“Muppet’s Haunted Mansion” debuts Friday on Disney+.
