The sequel “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,” reads the film’s official synopsis. “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 Gervais. Fey is featured as Nadya, a feisty prison guard.”
2011′s The Muppets starred human celebrities Amy Adams and Jason Segel (the latter got the project off the ground to begin with thanks to his passion for the long-running franchise). Neither star will be a part of the sequel, but we’re looking forward to new characters from Gervais, Fey, and Burrell.
