Not only can you check out Kermit, Piggy and the rest of the gang on “Muppets Now” but you can also celebrate some important milestones with Jim Henson’s crew including the 25th Anniversary of Muppet Treasure Island and the 30th Anniversary of Dinosaurs.
And for GOLD MEMBERS of Disney’s D23 fan club, you can also participate in a Muppetational celebration held the day before the new episodes make their debut!
A Muppetational Legacy with D23 will premiere on Thursday, February 18, 2021 at 7pm EST.
