Puppy Auditions for Next Muppet Movie
When Disney announced the production of a new Muppet movie, The Muppets… Again!, set for release in 2014, Elle realized this might be her big chance.
The little dog, a lifelong Muppets fan, immediately put together an elaborate audition tape. With the help of friends, a slew of green screen effects, and her wardrobe of authentic costumes, Elle was able to insert herself in numerous classic Muppet scenes.
“Elle was good,” said Spencer Chapman-Long, vice president of communications for The Muppets Studio. “She had all the voices down and the production quality of her audition tape was extremely impressive.”
Chapman-Long declined to say if Elle’s tape was good enough to land her a role in the new movie, however.
