Disney In Depth banner

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.

Tina Fey And Amy Poehler To Host Next Two Golden Globes

Tonight, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler returned to NBC for their second time hosting the Golden Globes Awards ceremony. The former SNL comediennes, TV actresses, and best buds once again did a great job, bringing laughter to the elite attendees and also to those of us watching at home.

Tom Hanks (who they repeatedly referred to as Tam Honks), Matt Damon (who they said tonight was “basically a garbage person”), and fellow SNL alum Julia Louis-Dreyfus, who was nominated for Best Actress for the film Enough Said as well as for her HBO series Veep, were highlighted in the hosts’ humorous opening monologue.

Watch the full Fey and Poehler’s entire opening monologue from the 71st Annual Golden Globe Awards here below.

‘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.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler

As the Oscars continue to scramble to find something that resembles a rating stability, the Golden Globes have locked 2013 hosts Tina Fey and Amy Poehler for two more Golden Globe shows. This really shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone seeing that the ceremony they hosted was a critical hit and a huge ratings boost – a 28 percent jump in the 18-49 demo if you are keeping track.

Below is a video of their opening monologue to remind you why these two are so hilarious and why NBC and Dick Clark Productions would want these two to host two more times.

D23 Expo: Ty Burrell Previews ‘Muppets Most Wanted’

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.
