Disney has released a new trailer for director James Bobin‘s upcoming sequel Muppets Most Wanted.  In the follow-up, the gang is on a successful tour in Europe but gets into trouble when Kermit gets confused with his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine. I really enjoyed 2011’s The Muppets, but almost everything I’m seeing from this sequel is doing nothing for me.  It’s not a bad premise, and it’s amusing to see Constantine try to impersonate Kermit, but it’s still a fairly tired plot and there’s almost none of the irreverence or wackiness I’d expect to see from a Muppet movie.  Here’s hoping it’s just a bad trailer and not a bad movie.

Hit the jump check out the new trailer and images, and find out about some of the cameos.  The film stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell.  Muppets Most Wanted opens March 21, 2014.

Yahoo! Movies also reveals that the film’s cameos include Celine Dion, Salma Hayek, Ray Liotta (who also had a cameo in Muppets from Space), P. Diddy, and Danny Trejo.  There are few details on the cameos except for Trejo, who will be in the Russian gulag with Kermit.  Trejo was supposed to have a cameo in the 2011 movie, but it ended up on the cutting room floor, so they decided to bring him back.  I’m all for Trejo paling around with Kermit the Frog.

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.
