What do you get when you combine the Muppets with some of Hollywood’s most hilarious actors?
Why, you get Muppets Most Wanted, of course!
The poster of sequel to the hit film, Muppets, was just released by Disney and it’s jam-packed with amazingness.
Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell are seen making funny faces in the background of the famous puppets in the promo shot.
And don’t worry fellow Muppet fans…all of the furry pals we’ve come to know and love are included in the fun.
We spot Miss Piggy (looking glam as always) and her pet pooch Foo-Foo, Fozzie Bear,Gonzo, Walter, Beaker, Animal, Constantine, Dominic and last, but certainly not least,Kermit the Frog.
Everyone’s favorite amphibian appears in the forefront of the poster making a devilish Dr. Evil pose.
Also, is Kermit rocking a new accessory this season? Mole, anyone?
We can’t wait to see what kind of trouble these pals get themselves into. And with the trio of comedians on board, plus many other surprising star cameos, there’s no telling what will happen.
The Muppets are set to take “the world by farce” when the flick hits theaters on March 21.
See from 1:27. It was funny!!!
Ty Burrell of ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ attends ‘Let the Adventures Begin: Live Action at The Walt Disney Studios’ presentation at Disney’s D23 Expo held at the Anaheim Convention Center on August 10, 2013 in Anaheim, California.

The Muppets are headed to Europe for their new film, Muppets Most Wanted, but while the audience in the big D23 Live Action Presentation were treated to a video link-up to Miss Piggy, none of the felt-covered famous folk gave interviews today. Still, they sent Ty Burrell – who plays Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon – in their place.
Burrell admits to being a massive Muppet fan, and says he agreed pretty much on the spot to take the role, before his agent asked him to go through the usual deal-making process. “It was such a warm part of the week in my household when I was young, so when this came along, I was extremely excited and had a hard time believing it. Let’s face it, it’s tough to find someone who isn’t a Muppet fan, something I’m learning more and more. Everyone seems really excited about there being another movie.”
Given that he’s playing a French law enforcement officer, was the actor tempted to go Full Clouseau with his accent? “It was very hard to resist the Clouseau, I must admit! You always want the running joke about no one being able to understand him, but luckily we didn’t just completely rip off that character.” Still, he got plenty of banter with Sam the Eagle, here tracking a frog criminal menace known as Constantine who switches places with Kermit on the Muppets’ world tour. “Sam is a very stubborn Eagle!” laughs Burrell. “He’s uber-American and my character, Jean Pierre is the European side, so it’s us basically us badmouthing each other.”
This sequel promises more music, written once more by Oscar-winning Muppets man Bret McKenzie. And Burrell didn’t miss out on the musical action. “I have a song, written by Bret. Mine is more of a patter song, but really fun and funny. I’ve done a couple of musicals in my life, but they were back in college, so this was truly fun.” For all his nerves, however, he’ll need more preparation as he gets set to voice a whale named Bailey in Finding Dory, which was briefly talked up yesterday. “I’m excited to get started on it. I’m a huge fan of Pixar. I’m going to put on 1100lbs to play him…”
Producer Todd Lieberman, who worked on the first film as well as this, was also available to talk, and he addressed how much Most Wanted would channel The Great Muppet Caper. “I think there was probably some subconscious element going on there, more of an honouring than anything else. But the feeling of the first movie leaning on a lot of the nostalgia and emotion and sets up the characters and this one takes advantage of that and has hopefully a lot of fun and madcap mayhem and crazy fun humour while not losing the heart.”
And despite the setting, London doesn’t suffer as much this time, despite potential trouble from the demolition-happy Crazy Eddie. “We shot inside the walls of the Tower Of London, which was a massive undertaking and a massive deal, but the name Kermit opens a lot of doors. Plus, we don’t blow it up…”
Muppets Most Wanted will travel to UK cinemas on March 28 next year.
Disney announced on Friday at the D23 expo in Anaheim, Calif., that Diane Keaton and Eugene Levy will join Ellen DeGeneres and Albert Brooks in the Disney/Pixar Finding Nemo sequel, Finding Dory. Keaton and Levy will play Dory’s long-lost parents.
Ty Burrell has also been added to the cast, playing a whale named Bailey.
Finding Dory is set one year after the first film takes place, reported director Andrew Stanton, the two-time Oscar winner who directed Finding Nemo a decade ago. This time, Dory returns to the open sea in search of her parents. It’s slated to hit theaters in November 2015.
Disney also announced Friday the voice casts of its upcoming The Good Dinosaur and Inside Out.
The cast of the prehistoric creature feature includes John Lithgow as the character Poppa and Frances McDormand as Momma, along with Bill Hader, Neil Patrick Harris and Judy Greer playing their kids, and Lucas Neff voicing their sibling, protagonist Arlo.
Hader, Greer and Neff made an appearance, helping to introduce several clips from the film, in which the dinosaurs are effectively farmers. One humorous clip features Arlo as he comes into contact with a human for the first time.
Up director Pete Docter‘s follow-up, Inside Out, slated for release in 2015, involves an inventive story that takes place inside the mind of an 11-year-old girl. Lead characters include the emotions Anger, voiced by Lewis Black; Disgust, Mindy Kaling; Fear, Hader; Joy, Amy Poehler; and Sadness, Phyllis Smith. Work in progress was screened, including a well-received clip showing several emotions in a sort of master control room, responding to a disagreement with the girl’s father. Smith and Hader joined Docter and producer Jonas Rivera on stage for the presentation.
Lasseter also previewed a short, Party Central, set on the campus of Monsters University as Mike and Sulley’s fraternity throws its first party; and the first 10 minutes of Toy Story of Terror, which will bring the toys to ABC on Oct. 16.
Additionally, Disneytoons announced two new projects on Friday, including The Legend of the NeverBeast, arriving in spring 2015, and The Pirate Fairy, due in Spring 2014. Christina Hendricks and Tom Hiddleston — the Pirate Fairy voice cast — took the stage to discuss their characters. The Mad Men actress will play Zarina, the titular character, while the Avengers alum will play James, a young Captain Hook.
Modern Family’s Julie Bowen joins the Planes sequel from director Bob Gannaway, Planes: Fire and Rescue, out next summer. Bowen will voice Dipper, a plane who is a big fan of the film’s protagonist, Dusty. Dane Cook is reprising his role as Dusty.
Disney revealed plans for a 2016 film titled Zootopia from director Byron Howard and writer Jared Bush.
