You can't keep a good frog down. After writer/star Jason Segel left the 'Muppets' sequel to work on other projects, Kermit, Gonzo, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the gang pressed ahead with 'Muppets Most Wanted' and brought some famous friends - namely Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell - along with them. Today, you can get your first look at the trailer for the all new Muppet adventure.
We were just saying last night on Twitter that upon further reflection, 2011's 'Muppets' reboot was mostly just...OK. It's not a bad movie, but considering how excited we were to have The Muppets back on the big screen (no more of those cheap, direct-to-DVD sequels), it felt like a let down. It's not even the best Amy Adams Disney musical of the past six years!
Regardless, we're still looking forward to 'Muppets Most Wanted' because, like pizza, even a bad 'Muppets' movie is still OK.
As with every 'Muppets' movie, this one is chock full of celebrity cameos. In addition to the names listed above, we noticed P. Diddy, Christoph Waltz, Danny Trejo, Zack Galifianakis, Salma Hayek, Celine Dion, Ray Liotta and Stanley Tucci (of course, not all the cameos in the 2011 'Muppets' trailer made it into the final film). But, most of all, we're just happy to see Waldorf and Statler back doing what they do best.
Take a look at the new 'Muppets Most Wanted' trailer above and let us know what you think.
