'Muppets' Movie Premiere: Kermit & Miss Piggy Arrive In Style (PHOTOS)

As the guests of honor and featured attraction, the Muppets made a grand entrance befitting their legendary star status... and their inability to power their own legs.

In yet another effort to hype up the release of the franchise's grand comeback film, Disney went all out on Saturday night, throwing a premiere event that included a star-studded green carpet. Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang arrived in the finest of auto luxury, with limos and convertibles carrying them past adoring fans and hungry photographers. Even for a crew that is used to massive public appearances -- Kermit, after all, serves as a balloon in Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade -- it was a special event befitting the public excitement over the film.

Jason Segel, who co-wrote and stars in the film, took plenty of photos with his on-screen girlfriend, Amy Adams, who shined as she greeted fans. Rashida Jones, who plays a role in the film, also walked the carpet, as did Segel's "How I Met Your Mother" co-stars Alyson Hannigan and Neil Patrick Harris, the latter of whom makes a cameo in the film.
