An amusing new trailer has been released for Muppets Most Wanted, the upcoming sequel to the 2011 hit The Muppets. The marketing for the new film has been quite smart, poking fun at Hollywood’s Twitter-inspired marketing and now they’ve targeted Hollywood’s obsession with sequels. It’s a great trailer, unveiling an entire musical number in which the Muppets sing, “There’s no need to disguise, the studios consider us a viable franchise.”
Check out the film’s synopsis and poster underneath the great new 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.
