In honor of May the 4th “The Muppets” have posted possibly the cutest celebration video ever. This morning, the puppet-driven franchise posted a clip to social media with Robin the Frog explaining his favorite movie. And the results of watching Kermit the Frog’s nephew explain the legendary franchise are as adorable as you’d expect.
He starts out by introducing the core characters, complete with an impressive Darth Vader impression. And talking about a “princess with pastries on the side of her head.” Robin then bounces around from scene to scene in the original trilogy, “A New Hope,” “Empire Strikes Back,” and “Return of the Jedi.” We’re going to assume because they are all his favorite movies and he couldn’t pick which one to explain.
This amalgamation of the films is of course delivered with all of the energy you’d expect from an excited youngster experiencing “Star Wars” for the first time.
“Star Wars” official Twitter account has already invited Robin to hang out in their galaxy any time. But that shouldn’t be a surprise considering the franchises already did a crossover with “The Muppets,” “The Stars of Star Wars” episode in 1980.
You can check out this overload of precious for yourself below. But be prepared to be humming “Star Wars, Star Wars, starry wars” to yourself for the rest of the day.
“The Muppets” latest series, “Muppets Mayhem” will hit Disney+ on May 10th. You can check out the teaser for that below:
