Must Watch: Ricky Gervais in 'Muppets Most Wanted' Teaser Trailer

The Muppets are back again, and now there's a teaser trailer to prove it. However, as excited as we are for the return of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all our favorite Muppets, this first teaser for Muppets Most Wanted feels dated. It's almost as if this particular trailer was crafted to play on a video tape in the 90s. Maybe it's the cheesy voiceover and weird editing that makes it feel like an old TV spot, but it's strange. Still, there's fun to be had with Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell and surprise appearances by Sean "Diddy" Combs and Salma Hayek. Who knows what other cameos are on the way, but there will be tons.
Here's the teaser trailer for James Bobin's Muppets Most Wanted, direct from Walt Disney Pictures:
Muppets Most Wanted is directed by James Bobin (The Muppets) who co-wrote the script with Nicholas Stoller. This time the entire Muppets gang is on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two (Ricky Gervais). The film also features Ty Burrell, Tina Fey, Ray Liotta and many more with Walt Disney Pictures releasing the film everywhere on March 21st, 2014 next year. Funny?
