Two years ago, the Muppets made one hell of a comeback thanks to the combined efforts of Jason Segel, Nick Stoller, director James Bobin, and Academy Award-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, and they’re back again in a new caper called “The Muppets Most Wanted.”
The sequel to 2011’s reboot plays to the tradition of “The Great Muppet Caper” and sends the lovable felt creatures to Europe to tangle with an Interpol agent played by “Modern Family’s” Ty Burrell and a gulag officer played by Tina Fey.
Though Segel has left his Muppet days behind him, the rest of the team is back, including McKenzie, who is writing new songs for the sequel.
The short preview for “The Muppets Most Wanted” already reveals a few cameo for the movie, which is sure to have many more. We get early glimpses at Diddy and Salma Hayek and a musical cameo from the Maroon 5 song “Moves Like Jagger.”
“The Muppets Most Wanted” opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.
