Here’s your pleasant surprise for the day: Disney released a teaser trailer for the sequel to 2011’s amazing Muppets reboot. While we knew that it would have the Muppets meet Ricky Gervais on a tour of Europe, we now know that Tina Fey and Ty Burrell will be along for the ride too. More importantly, we have a title– Muppets Most Wanted.
The trailer’s got Animal yelling, Fey arresting Kermit in Russia, P. Diddy on a train, and Scooter singing Maroon 5’s “Moves Like Jagger”, because why not:
In addition to the trailer, Disney gave a quick summary of what we can expect to see in the film:
Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’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 Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—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.
Sounds very fun, and very Muppet-y. Spring 2014 can’t come soon enough!
