After finding big success with their last feature-length film, the Muppets are getting ready to hit the big screen again in a sequel called “The Muppets… Again!” Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang have already begun filming for the movie in London, which will hit theatres early next year.
“The Muppets… Again!” will find Kermit and friends busy on a world tour when they get caught up in a mess with a criminal who wants to steal a huge diamond. The criminal just so happens to look exactly like Kermit.
Kermit himself says it was great filming the last movie, since he and his friends don’t see each other very often.
“Well, we hadn’t done a big movie in a long, long time, so really just seeing the guys everyday was celebration enough,” Kermit said of the first Muppets movie. “Because, you know, when we’re not working, we go and do our separate things. We don’t live in a big house or anything. I don’t really spend a lot of time in Hollywood. I go back to the swamp. Piggy usually won’t come to the swamp with me—she just goes off with my credit card and I don’t see her for months. It’s very strange.”
