The Muppets are coming, The Muppets are coming, back to the big screen on March 21, 2014. This is fantastic news for us, my children are HUGE fans of the Muppets, well as huge as a two and four year old can be! Its really funny that they watched “The Muppets” on DVD today, this is our second copy. They watched our first copy so many times, it stopped working!
Disney’s “The Muppets … Again!” is currently shooting on location in London, with plans to film in Hollywood. In a recent interview with EW.com, Kermit talked about The Muppets history with London.
We have lots of old friends here. I know plenty of frogs here. And I’ve met the queen. She doesn’t know I’m in town yet but I plan to go see her. I try to stay close to the royalty. There’s always that outside chance I could get turned into a prince, you see. Pretty important stuff for a frog.
This time around, Ricky Gervais (Constantine’s villainous sidekick Dominic), Ty Burrell (an Interpol agent) and Tina Fey (a Russian prison guard), join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Walter and the entire Muppets Gang (plus Celebrity Cameos) on a global adventure, as they’re on tour with sell out performances in some of Europe’s most thrilling destinations. But as they’re enjoying fame and fortune, trouble finds them when they become tangled up with a criminal mastermind named Constantine, who is out to steal an enormous diamond. The thief is also a dead ringer for Kermit. Anyone else hearing maniacal laughter?
What does Kermit think about working with Gervais?
Ricky Gervais is kind of like a Muppet, if you think about it. He fits right in. He’s about our size. I actually think when this film ends it’s going to be hard to get rid of him. He keeps following me back to my hotel in London, which is very strange, but we’re thrilled to have him.
Hmmm, never thought of Ricky Gervais as a Muppet, but guess we’ll have to take Kermit’s word for it. You can read the entire interview with Kermit at EW.com.
