Entertainment Weekly has just released the first official poster for “Muppets Most Wanted.” This sequel to the successful 2011 relaunch of the “Muppets” brand will center on an evil doppelgänger of Kermit the Frog, named Constantine, who starts an international caper that involves all of the beloved characters from the series. Constantine appears on the poster, looking like Kermit with a mole on his face and pulling a “Dr. Evil.”
As always, this new Muppets film managed to attract some great real-life stars. While Jason Segel- who was so instrumental in the relaunch- has opted not to return, this film stars the likes of Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, and Ty Burrell. They’re featured heavily on the poster, with their names above the title, so it looks like their roles are sizable. I’m sure we can also expect the usual cavalcade of cameos, too.
“Muppets Most Wanted” hits theaters, stateside, on March 21.
