The official trailer has been released for Muppets Most Wanted, the upcoming sequel from director James Bobin. While on a grand world tour, the Muppets find themselves wrapped into an European jewel-heist caper headed by a Kermit lookalike and his dastardly sidekick. The trailer is amusing, with plenty of jokes and guest-stars everywhere you look. It doesn’t look as good as Bobin’s excellent 2011 film The Muppets, but there’s still enough going on here to capture our interest.
The film stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell.
You can find the official synopsis and poster underneath the trailer.
Official synopsis for Muppets Most Wanted:
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, creator of “Derek” and the Golden Globe®- and Emmy®-winning series “The Office” and “Extras.” The film stars Golden Globe-, Emmy- and SAG Award®-winning actress and writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock,” “Mean Girls,” “Date Night”) as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell (TV’s “Modern Family”) as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
