Kermit The Frog

Here’s the new voice of Kermit The Frog

Posted Filed under

Earlier this year, it was revealed that Steve Whitmire, who has been playing and voicing Kermit The Frog since the death of Jim Henson back in 1990, had been relieved of his duties by Disney. Both sides of the argument got a very public airing in the aftermath of the news coming to light.

Now, the dust may be settling a little, as a new Muppets YouTube post has introduced us to the new Kermit The Frog performer. You don’t see him, of course, but Kermit is now voiced and performed by Matt Vogel (who performed the role of Kermit doppelganger Constantine, amongst others, in the underrated Muppets Most Wanted movie).

Here, then, is Vogel’s official debut in the role…

What further projects are being lined up for Kermit remains to be seen…
