Disney Debuts Muppets Web Series
Disney is launching a new six-part digital series to promote the home-video release of “Muppets Most Wanted.”
The series, called “Disney Drive-On with the Muppets,” follows Pepe the King Prawn, who has been left in charge of the Muppets’ office in the Walt Disney Studios lot in Burbank. Across six episodes, Pepe takes the responsibility of “mentoring” the newest Muppet, Walter, who starts out with a low-level job on the lot.
“Disney Drive-On with the Muppets” will be available on Disney Movies Anywhere, the company’s cloud-based digital movie service that allows users to browse, buy, and watch Disney, Pixar, and Marvel films and related bonus content.
Two episodes are out on Disney Movies Anywhere, including the service’s YouTube channel. The remaining episodes will roll out, two at a time, every Friday.Tags: disney, Disney Movies Anywhere, Muppets Most Wanted, The Muppets
