Egmont Creative Center signed a deal to publish a one-shot magazine to support the release of The Muppets throughout Europe in January.
The Muppets Magazine is scheduled for distribution in Germany and part of Eastern Europe initially. Targeted at teens, the full-color, 36-page magazine will feature a mix of comic pages, quizzes, profiles, activities, fun facts and jokes.
“We are excited to have this opportunity to expand on the story line and audience appeal with the Muppets Magazine,” says Lone Jochumsen, editor-in-chief at ECC. "Teens are a perfect audience for our publication. The Muppets are nostalgic for them–a good memory from their childhood. The magazine builds on the characters teens love and helps bring the story of the movie to life."
