“The Muppets” was really one of my favorite films of 2011. It was funny, charming and Jason Segal and Amy Adams were great. They’re not returning, but Kermit, Miss Piggy and company are in the newly titled “The Muppets…Again!”

The sequel stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell and James Bobin returning to direct. Also, more good news, Flight of the Conchords’ Bret McKenzie is returning to write some of the songs. He won an Oscar for “Man or Muppet”.
