Amy Adams - Actress Amy Adams has returned to the “Enchantment” studio to film once again.

The movie was “The Muppets,” which revives the late Jim Henson’s puppet troupe for old fans and a new generation.

For the actress, it’s a return to the studio where she became a star as a Disney princess in the 2007 musical hit “Enchantment.”

“Yes, this is,” Adams confirmed, “my return to singing and dancing. It was a lot of fun.”

She made “The Muppets” three months after giving birth to daughter Aviana Olea Le Gallo with boyfriend Darren Le Gallo in Los Angeles.

“It was my first family film after having a child and cool to work with the Muppets. They were a big part of my childhood,” she said, sitting next to Miss Piggy at a Beverly Hilton hotel press conference.

“It was an opportunity to relive my childhood while I had a child and it’s going to be a great way to introduce my child to the Muppets.”

The musical movie allows her to sing a solo, share vocal duties on a song with Miss Piggy and join the entire cast for the Hollywood Boulevard finale.

“We learned that dance in an hour the day we shot it,” Amy said.

Added her 6-foot-4-inch leading man Jason Segel (“Forgetting Sarah Marshall”), “That dance number came naturally. You can see by my body, I’m very lithe and agile and I was glad to help Amy get her footing.”

“Jason is actually a natural. He only broke a couple of ribs,” Adams joked, “and didn’t drop me but lifted my skirt up, accidentally I think, just once.”
