During last night’s Golden Globes, Disney released a new TV spot for Muppets Most Wanted. In the upcoming sequel, the gang is on a successful tour in Europe but gets into trouble when Kermit gets confused with his jewel-heisting doppelganger, Constantine. This new TV spot is in the vein of the one that was released last week, which also poked fun at poor grammar and communication on Twitter. I don’t know if the movie is going to be any good, but at least these spots have been an entertaining parody of Twitter discourse. And obviously, it’s preposterous to quote actual Twitter users for the purposes of marketing. Who would do that?
Hit the jump to check out the TV spot, and click on the respective links for our set report, and interviews with Kermit, Miss Piggy, Walter, and producer Todd Lieberman. The film stars Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, and Tina Fey. Muppets Most Wanted opens March 21st.
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, Dublin 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 the Frog—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
