“Oh no! Disaster! That can only mean one thing!” That’s right, Statler and Waldorf. A sequel. With just a month to go before the film’s premiere, Disney has released another tongue-in-cheek, star-studded trailer for Muppets Most Wanted. In fact, Disney has been releasing teasers, Muppisodes, fan-reviewed trailers, Super Bowl trailers, and a number of other viral marketing videos to get audiences ramped up for The Muppets sequel, and let’s just say the tactic is working. How is this movie not out yet? Give us Miss Piggy!
Luckily, this trailer is just as charming as its predecessors. It introduces “We’re Doing a Sequel,” Muppets Most Wanted‘s self-aware opening number. Set up like a classic movie musical, Kermit, Fozzie Bear, Miss Piggy and the entire Muppet gang takes a few jabs at themselves, the film industry, and movie studios with lines like, “We’re doing a sequel! That’s what we do in Hollywood. And everybody knows that the sequel’s never quite as good.” Wink. From what we’ve seen so far, it looks like the Muppets are pulling out all the stops to make sure their sequel’s up to snuff.
