Today I’m standing up for Miss Piggy and a slight injustice.
It’s only because I’m on her side as a supporter, as a fan, and if she’ll have me (a shopping buddy?), that I must talk to you about a very important matter.
Just look at her face here.
I see this picture every time we’re in Hollywood Studios (though, by now, I hope someone has changed the poster to Muppets Most Wanted) I wonder how Miss Piggy feels about this picture because… it just isn’t her best. My husband thinks I’m a little crazy. “Estelle. She is a pig.” So? Shouldn’t she have a say in how she looks on a movie poster? Shouldn’t she?!
What about here?
Slightly better angle (less poof-y cheeks) but the facial expression doesn’t say HELLO I AM MISSY PIGGY AND EVERYONE LOOK AT MOI instead… she looks like she couldn’t be bothered. Maybe that’s her evil plan though. She’s been on so many movie posters so this one is just old news.
It’s well-documented that Miss Piggy has gone through quite a remarkable transformation since her humble beginnings back in 1974. Forty years later, she’s still making movies, throwing other celebrities into cakes, making moves in the fashion world, and chasing after the love of her life.
Frankly, I’m disappointed in Miss Piggy though.
I don’t expect her to stand up for the rest of the Muppet family but it seems so out of character that she would just sit back and accept this unoriginal, “stock photos disguised as movie posters’ trend, which fail to represent her most flattering side and also her vivacious personality.
It’s a conspiracy!
Oh well. You know Miss Piggy. She finds other ways to shine.
