Kermit the Frog sat down with Entertainment Weekly for an interview aboutThe Muppets… Again, and he gave away some important plot info!
Go ahead and read the interview here.
Here’s the important stuff we’ve learned:
- The plot, according to Kermit: “The idea of this film is that our gang is on this global tour, and we’re selling out these grand theaters all over Europe—in Berlin, Madrid, London—but we sort of get into a little bit of trouble when we run across my doppleganger. He’s the world’s number one criminal, Constantine, and he happens to look an awful lot like me”
- Tina Fey will be playing “a feisty prison guard named Nadia”.
- Some interesting things in the new photo above: Bellhop rats, Constantine’s mug shot, the Muppet Newsman on Kermit’s newspaper, an awesome Muppet Show poster that I want to own
UPDATE: Here is the official synopsis from Disney’s press release, which Kermit refers to in his interview:
Disney’s “The Muppets …Again!” 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.
Muppet fans, start your engines.
