The film centers on the efforts of Gary (Segel), his girlfriend Mary (Adams) and brother Walter to save the Muppet Theater from being razed by a nefarious oilman (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.

In one clip, Gary, Mary and Walter are searching for Kermit in Los Angeles -- where they make an unscheduled pit stop at famous hot dog eatery Pink's.

Another provides a bit of nostalgia for Muppets when Miss Piggy takes down another pig with her signature "hey-ya!" karate chop.

Segel also co-wrote the movie with Nicholas Stoller and serves as executive producer.

The movie, which marks the first Muppets feature film since 1999's Muppets From Space, opens Nov. 23.
