Later this month, The Muppets will be back on the big screen. To celebrate their return, here’s a special trailer to get you in the mood.
When it comes to The Muppets, you have to go big or go home. In 2011, the franchise was revived with a self-titled feature directed by James Bobin. The film was a commercial and critical success, earning over $165 million worldwide at the box office. Plus, it scored an Academy Award for Best Original Song (“Man or Muppet”).
It’s three years later, and the gang’s ready to do it again. They’ve shot a sequel and are announcing it the only way they know how. Immediately after the dramatic finale of the previous film, The Muppets reunite for another song-and-dance number. This time, they sing about their newest adventure, Muppets Most Wanted.
Once again, Bobin is on board to direct, but there’s a new human cast. Jason Segel and Amy Adams are out, while Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais are in. We can also expect appearances by Ty Burrell, Tom Hiddleston, Zach Galifianakis and even Lady Gaga. Everyone wants to be a part of this movie. It’s no wonder The Muppets want to sing a song about it.
In Muppets Most Wanted, you can expect mystery, intrigue and lots of laughs. The Muppets get caught up in an international caper when Kermit’s mistaken for a notorious thief. Will they be able to prove his innocence? We’ll have to watch to find out.
