The Muppets are back…again. For their follow-up to the 2011 hit featuring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear and many more, Disney have decided to go with a very literal, fitting moniker for the project, titling the film The Muppets…Again!.

The Muppets…Again! hits theaters on March 21st, 2014.
