The first teaser trailer and a few new images were just released by Disney for the upcoming Muppets Most Wanted.  Director James Bobin’s sequel finds the Muppets gang on a successful tour in Europe, but everything goes awry when Kermit gets confused with his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine.  Ricky Gervais plays Constantine’s sidekick, Tina Fey plays a Russian prison guard, and Ty Burrell plays an Interpol agent.  SOLD, take my money now please!!!!  This trailer is heavy on kid-frienly stunts, and we don’t get to see much of Gervais’ performances, but from the brief glimpses it looks like Fey and Burrell will be scene-stealers here.  The majority of the creative team behind the first film is back, including Bobin as director and co-writer and Nicholas Stoller as the screenwriter, so hopefully it will be as delightful as the original.

The film will feature cameos by Tom Hiddleston, Christopher Waltz, Danny Trejo, Ray Liotta, Frank Langella, Sean Combs, Usher, and many more big names.  Muppets Most Wanted opens on March 21, 2014.

Via Disney.

Here’s the 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.
