Tag Archive: The Muppets…Again!


Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” was a box office smash, even though it wasn’t all that great. But Disney of course is making a sequel called “Into the Looking Glass”. The sequel brings back Mia Wasikowska as Alice and Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter. Here’s the surprising news. Burton isn’t coming back. Instead, James Bobin (“The Muppets”, “The Mupets…Again!”) will helm the sequel.

This is getting confusing. “The Muppets…Again!” won’t have Amy Adams or Jason Segal involved. It does star Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell, Tina Fey and Ray Liotta (?) are in. Christoph Waltz was in, but then was replaced. Turns our Gervais revealed that Waltz will still appear in the film. That’s good news, even if it’s just a cameo, but the casting news is getting as confusing as “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For”.

Well, I don’t know about big, but it’s pretty significant. Reports are that Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog will be tying the knot in “The Muppets…Again!”. Now this is where things get fishy. Technically speaking, the pair got married in “Muppets Take Manhattan”, though in “interviews” Kermit has denied this. The anticipated sequel also stars Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey.

Muppets sequel gets a title!

“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”.
