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.
Disneyâ€™s â€œMuppets Most Wantedâ€ takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europeâ€™s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantineâ€”the Worldâ€™s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermitâ€”and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
