Ricky Gervais in The Muppets…Again Stills
Disney is excited to bring us a sequel for the much loved The Muppets next year, so they decided to release a little treat in the mean time. The following two photos was taken on set for the sequel, The Muppets …Again and it shows off Ricky Gervais, Kermit and Miss Piggy together, as well as some regular muppet shot. The movie will also star Tina Fey and Ty Burrell. The sequel is aimed to be released March 21, 2014 at this point. As for what the sequel will be about, Kermit told Entertainment Weekly the following quote.
The idea of this film is that our gang is on this global tour, and we’re selling out these grand theaters all over Europe—in Berlin, Madrid, London—but we sort of get into a little bit of trouble when we run across my Doppelgänger. He’s the world’s number one criminal, Constantine, and he happens to look an awful lot like me. I won’t tell you any more than that, but let’s just say mayhem ensues
Poor Kermit! That is terrible that they have an evil Doppelganger of him playing mean tricks. He needs his image among fans and friends saved, as well as a way to stop this Kermit wannabe. He certainly isn’t kidding when he says that it isn’t easy to be green. Constantine certainly needs to be stopped if they wish to keep Kermit on the tour and not to scare off their fan base! Hopefully they will have all of the help that they need to make that happen,
How do you feel about the sequel? Is Disney trying too hard? Yes to both, if you ask me. I do think that Disney could be taking this whole sequel thing too seriously, but can you blame them? The first one was a hit and since older fans also love the Muppets, it was a win-win kind of option for everyone around. They would be dumb to ignore it, even though that might make them a tiny more respectable in the eyes of some who think they sold out. Hopefully this one will be as successful as the first one was and they can bank big on another potential family hit. Don’t you agree?
