'Hunger Games' Gets 'Muppets' Parody Treatment For 'Muppets' DVD Release

Posted: Updated:

To celebrate the release of "The Muppets" on Blu-Ray and DVD, Jason Segel, Kermit, Miss Piggy and the rest of the crew have returned for a "Hunger Games" parody trailer.

Joining the ranks of "Twilight" parody posters and "Saw" spoofs, the "Hunger Games" meets "Muppets" trailer features an ominous "Hunger Games" voice over, warnings like "Get ready to feel the hunger," and images of Miss Piggy eating doughnuts and looking suspiciously like Effie Trinket.

Earlier this week, Segel announced he would not be returning for a "Muppets" sequel.

"My goal was to bring the Muppets back," the screenwriter and star told Collider. "And I did that leaving them in very good hands, my writing partner and James Bobin the director. I did what I set out to do, and now I wanna pursue more human-related projects."

"The Muppets" will be released on Blu-Ray and DVD on March 20.
