The new trailer for “Muppets Most Wanted,” the latest film from the felt troupe of performs gives us a better idea of what to expect when it hits theaters next year, in terms of story, cameos, and songs.
“Muppets Most Wanted” is bringing back most of the elements that made 2011’s “The Muppets” the group’s first hit in years. Bret McKenzie is back with new songs after winning an Oscar for “Man or Muppet” and so is director James Bobin and co-writer Nick Stoller.
This time around, the story is in the style of a classic Muppets caper. The world’s most notorious jewel thief bares a striking resemblance to Kermit the Frog, and he devises a plan to switch places with the lovable ringleader. Once the trade takes place, the rest of the gang has to figure out the plot before Kermit spends too much time in prison.
“Muppets Most Wanted” opens in theaters on March 21, 2014.
