Muppet Babies is coming to Disney Junior this March and we are so excited to hear a piece of the brand new theme song today. We’re even more thrilled because Tony Award-winner and Broadway star of Hamilton Renée Elise Goldsberry is the one singing it! Goldsberry will bring her fabulous voice to the iconic tune and you can listen to a sneak peek right now:
While Goldsberry is making every Muppet Babies fan’s dreams come true, she’s making her own dreams come true as well. Here’s what the spirited songstress had to say about being the voice of the Muppet Babies theme song:
“I was a huge fan of the original Muppet Babies series and am so excited that Disney Junior is bringing these beloved characters back in a new series for my children to grow up with in the same way that I did.”
Props to talented songwriters Kay Hanley, Michelle Lewis, and Dan Petty for reimagining the theme song for a new generation of kids—and us—to experience the beloved Muppet Babies series! We can’t wait to relive our childhood and follow the computer-animated adventures of young Kermit the Frog, Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and Animal—as well as welcome a Muppet Baby newcomer named Summer Penguin:
We’re going to be playing the modern-day theme song on repeat when it’s released by Walt Disney Records on February 23!
