D23 2015 Muppets Panel

The Muppets and their Performers at the 2015 D23 Expo.

This week I’m proud to present the audio from “The Magic Behind the Muppets”, the premier Muppet presentation from Disney’s D23 Expo held in Anaheim, CA. This audio is barely over 48 hours old at this point, and the presentation was a humongous success for the Muppets at the Expo. Both performers and puppets were onstage, and a few lucky fans even got into the act, getting to perform puppet characters alongside Steve Whitmire and Kermit the Frog!

I Need Your Help

The MuppetCast is looking for people with a passion for the Muppets to step up and help take things to the next level.

We’d love to have you!

About The D23 Expo

Started in 2009, the bi-annual D23 Expo celebrates everything Disney under one roof. The very, very large roof of the Anaheim Convention Center. The three-day event provides one-of-a-kind fan experiences that put Disney fans up close and personal with the people, places, movies, and characters from some of the best-loved properties of all time. Celebrity appearances, extravagant presentations, and surprises around every corner are the norm at this event, where fans reminisce over Disney’s past, and get a glimpse of what’s coming. The Muppets have played a part at every Expo so far.
