    So excited! It’s looking even better! My favorite trailer so far is the “Being Green”

    I dunno…Jason Segal seems to be putting a LOT of emphasis on baby-boomer Show nostalgia (“It’s time to light the lights”) as opposed to just nostalgia for the group, which sort of reduces his approach to 70’s pop-kitsch. Not exactly what Disney was hoping for to revive the franchise for new generations.

    And even though they’re trying to piece out the trailers in a campaign, like Seinfeld did with “Bee Movie”, when we get in the Lantern trailer, “Wait, what’s with all the parody trailers?…Why don’t we just show the movie? What are we trying to hide?” I had the urge to say “Um….(raises hand)?” 🙁

      Hey Eric… news flash!! Those of us who grew up in the 70’s are not Baby Boomers! Baby Boomers were our parents! We are gen-x if you wanna label us… and “it’s time to light the lights” is from the Muppet Show which pilot ran in 1974 (when I was 5) and then ran for 5 seasons from 76 to 81 (when i was age 7 through 12). Sooo, I ask you this…. how does a reference from a seventies show reduce an approach to 70’s pop-kitsch?
      ….and I don’t care about a revival for new generations…. The Muppets that we grew up with were actually very radical with adult humor abound. Sorry… I can’t wait to see the movie.
