Europe, accents, and a bad frog are all on the menu in the new trailer for Muppets Most Wanted.
Disney's 2011 Muppet movie reboot successfully brought Jim Henson's characters into the modern era by keeping their trademark Old-Hollywood feel. Based on the trailer for the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted it looks like they are following in the footsteps of the earlier Muppet movies by turning their focus away from Hollywood into something more The Great Muppet Caper-y.
The trailer finds our Muppets in quite a predicament when a criminal mastermind steals Kermit's identity. Tina Fey is a Russian prison guard wrongfully arresting Kermit. Ty Burrell is a French Interpol inspector comparing badges with Sam the Eagle. Ricky Gervais is British in that Ricky Gervais way.
Will this be any good? Who knows! The first one was certainly charming, but this lacks the influence of Jason Segel, who provided a good measure of that charm. Still, Tom Hiddleston and Diddy make cameos so we're like, definitely, seeing this.
