In the marketing they say it is "less Sesame, more Street". And Sesame Street is suing them over it.

Coming in August.

I won't go to a theater for it but I'll see it eventually.

I'd sue them too.

Not to make them stop of course, but to get a cut. It looks like a big one.

I doubt it's a copyright violation. If they call it a parody it probably falls under fair use. Like how Spaceballs was a parody of Star Wars.
