Read the Muppet Movie screenplay

  • Now they know their role; Probably didn’t read the script before
  • Meta; everything is fated?
  • This is the movie the muppets made to retell their origin story.
  • They are already famous at the time
  • So presumably they know they have an audience
  • Electric Mayhem wouldn’t necessarily know what came before them
  • So they need to read the script to see what’s what.
  • IRL, they probably told them
