Disney has released the opening dance number for the James Bobin-directed film, featuring Jason Segel and a new Muppet named Walter. In the clip, Segel’s Gary and Walter wear matching get-ups as they shuffle past a long line of smiling townspeople on the streets of Smalltown, U.S.A.

“I’ve got everything that I need right in front of me/ Nothing’s stopping me/ Nothing that I can’t be with you right here next to me,” the duo croons.
The film centers on the efforts of Gary, his girlfriend Mary (Amy Adams) and brother Walter to save the Muppet Theater from being razed by a nefarious oilman (Chris Cooper) who wants to use the property to drill oil recently discovered there. To do so, they must reunite the Muppets, who have all gone their separate ways.
Segel co-wrote the movie with Nicholas Stoller and serves as an executive producer. The film, which marks the first Muppets feature film since 1999’s Muppets From Space, opens Nov. 23.
