On the heels of the wildly successful, The Muppets, the gang is all back together as filming for the highly anticipated sequel began in London. The premise of the sequel is that The Muppets are off on a world tour only to be caught up in the evil diamond heist plans of Constantine, a criminal mastermind and Kermit the Frog doppelganger.
Returning director James Bobin co-wrote the film with Nicholas Stoller crediting his love of “those classic jewel-heist capers from the ’60s and ’70s” with inspiring the plot for the film which will again feature some musical numbers. The Muppets sequel will also feature some A-list celebrity cameos including Ricky Gervais (as Constantine’s villainous sidekick), Tina Fey (as a Russian prison guard), and Ty Burrell (as an Interpol agent).
The Muppets sequel is slated to be released March 14th, 2014.
