A new “Muppets Most Wanted” preview that Disney unveiled on Thursday should bring a smile to any fan of Jim Henson’s cloth creations.
The trailer (above) is a musical number with a simple message: “We’re doing a sequel!”
The catchy song and dance routine — featuring favorites including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, Gonzo, and of course Statler and Waldorf — takes place immediately after the ending of the hit 2011 “Muppets” movie that relaunched the franchise.
“We’re doing a sequel, there’s no need to disguise. The studio considers a viable franchise,” the gang sings. “We’re doing a sequel, the studio wants more. while they wait for Tom Hanks to make ‘Toy Story 4’.”
It hits theaters on March 21.
