The trailer for the much anticipated sequel to The Muppets debuted on the internet today.
Starring Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell (Phil Dunfey in Modern Family), and with cameos from Salma Hayek and P Diddy along with our favourite furry friends, it seems the movie is aiming for aggressive expansion.
Although the plot remains sketchy at this early stage, we do know that at least part of the film will be set in England and by the looks of the trailer Russia too.
After the The Muppets’ initial parody of F*ck You by Cee Lo Green, it looks like the Muppets are getting the moves like Jagger if this trailer is anything to go by.
Expect a great social media campaign to follow in the coming months for all ages. The Muppets underwent a full rebranding of sorts when Disney took the reins for the initial 2011 film, and the campaign which followed was excellent.
