Muppets Most Wanted
Directed by James Bobin
Starring Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Steve Whitmire, and Eric Jacobson
Walt Disney Pictures
Released March 21, 2014

The Muppets are back on the big screen, but does this “sequel” live up to the 2011 film that essentially ignited interest once again in the brand? While Muppets Most Wanted lacks the drama and overwhelming nostalgia of its predecessor, it more than makes up for that in laughs and smiles a plenty. The movie is insanely funny and astute, far from a film that you would want to imprison audiences from seeing.

While initial box office results are more disappointing and middling than encouraging – its opening weekend here in the United States totaled to a mere $17 million – I cannot think of any reason why moviegoers should avoid this genius blend of satire and parody in great Muppet form. It was evident in its marketing, and it translates to the actual film.

Muppets Most Wanted leaps into theaters some 28 months after the “revival” of the Muppets entity through the Jason Segel and Amy Adams film that sparked new interest in Kermit, our favorite felt friend. The March 21 release benefits from a keen and laugh-out-loud marketing campaign that integrates one of the brand’s best assets: smart humor.

This week’s Disney In Depth takes you behind the scenes as we explore how Disney’s first family film of 2014 may also be the best-promoted movie of the year – no matter the studio.

Happy St. Patrick's Day from The Muppets

The Muppets are gearing up for the release of their next feature film, Muppets Most Wanted, but they’re taking some time out of their busy schedule to send some St. Patrick’s Day greetings. You see, main Muppet Kermit The Frog usually laments about how it’s not easy being green, but this green-filled holiday is the one day where it’s actually is easy to be green!

Check out The Muppets holiday ecard here above, and their video message here below.

You can see Kermit and his friends in the movie The Muppets on DVD and Blu-ray, and then in its sequel, Muppets Most Wanted, in theaters on March 21, 2014.

Miss Piggy’s Designer Wedding Gown For ‘Muppets Most Wanted’

Muppets Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog at the 2012 Academy Awards

Will they or won’t they get married? That’s the question on everyone’s minds when it comes to the world-famous Muppets pair Kermit The Frog and Miss Piggy. The couple has been together for decades, repeatedly professing their love for one another, yet Piggy has had to resort to trickery several times in the past in an effort to get Kermit down the aisle. In 1984’s Muppets Take Manhattan, the couple seemingly tied the knot, but it seems the union was invalidity due to it being yet another one of Piggy’s schemes.

For the upcoming film Muppets Most Wanted, Piggy commissioned a dress from famous designer Vivienne Westwood, whose creation can be used as a wedding gown if Piggy can get Kermit to finally say “I do” for real this time around.

Check out the photo here below of Miss Piggy in her beautiful couture wedding dress.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Trailer: Kermit The Frog and The Case Of Mistaken Identity

Muppets Most Wanted Trailer Header Image

One is the most world renowned frog in the entertainment business, and the other is the most notorious frog in crime. It’s a case of mistaken frog identity in director James Bobin‘s sequel to The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted. The gang is back together for the sequel that will take them on a tour that takes them around the world and back. Problem is Kermit will be spending a great portion of that tour in prison, while the most notorious frog in crime, Constantine, takes his place.

This crime caper flick, which looks to be as much fun, if not more fun, than the film’s predecessor. And of course it wouldn’t be much of a Muppet movie if it did not have any sequels. Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, and Ricky Gervais are the principle cast, but there are cameos made by Danny Trejo, Christoph Waltz, Ray Liotta, P. Diddy, Celine Dion, and Tom Hiddleston (oh please let that be Tom Hiddleston). Hit the jump to see the full trailer.

D23 Expo 2013: Muppets Most Wanted

Get ready for Muppet mayhem in March 2014, as a preview of Muppets Most Wanted shown today at the Disney D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, suggests this will be a fantastic sequel to the 2011 feature, The Muppets.

The newly-shown footage says that Constantine, the villainous Kermit look-alike with a mole, is the “world’s greatest criminal (that) bears resemblance to someone you know.” Constantine is a riot, as indicated by the clips, including a musical sequence where he asserts his “number one” authority over Ricky Gervais’ character, Dominic, aka Number Two.

The scene began with the Muppets in a theatre, looking for Kermit, and in comes Gervais with Kermit “clone” Constantine, who tries to cover up his European accent. Animal senses this is not his amphibian pal and attempts to eat Constantine’s arm. Constantine talks with Walter, but the cheerful Muppet does not understand who this is. Constantine struggles to say the word “burglary” when scheming with Gervais’ character, and then the two enter their duet on a staircase. They even “tap dance.” This was hilarious, and the audience was apparently the “first in the world” to see this footage, according to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Sean Bailey.
