For the follow-up to the 2011 blockbuster hit The Muppets the fur and felt troupe are going into the international crime field. While on an international tour the notorious Jewel thief Constantine, which happens to look very like Kermit The Frog, manages to switch identities with our amphibious hero in order to carry out the most daring theft of all time.
Given the critical and commercial success of the last film a sequel was inevitable. Interestingly Jason Segal is not featuring this time around. Jason was the driving force behind the previous film getting green lit. In his place as the Humanish characters we have Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell. Add to them a long list of cameo appearances from major and minor film stars.
As a fan of The Muppets (the film and the TV series) I am looking forward to this immensely. The trailer is fast and funny and over all too soon. It’s good to see Sam the Bald Eagle featuring more prominently in this one. A Classic character.
Muppets Most Wanted is released on the 21st of March 2014
