It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights. It’s time to read an update on the new Muppet film tonight!
As you might assume from my lead, a sequel to The Muppets has officially been confirmed, and there’s even an image to prove it. [MTV]
Disney made the announcement yesterday during a panel at CinemaCon, and while the studio neglected to divulge any further details, the news did cement the plot leanings that Muppets co-writer Nicholas Stoller dished on earlier this month. So far, we know that Muppets 2 will be a “comedy caper” in the tradition of The Great Muppet Caper and The Muppets Take Manhattan, and that the felted cast will return with the addition of new characters.
As for the human side of the film, Jason Segel won’t return to write or star (except for a possible cameo), but Stoller and Muppets director James Bobin will step back into their roles. Fans can look forward to a summer 2013 release, but until then, we’ll keep you updated on any new information.
