Given the success of the revival in 2011, Disney’s The Muppets sequel is a highly anticipated project. Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey are set to star in the lead human roles.
Today we’re getting our first look at the latter character.
Fey plays Russian prison guard Nadya, and the possibly leaked photo depicts her and Kermit in prison.
The image almost looks like a leaked still from a preview monitor on set. It surfaced on @MuppetMindset and depicts a frustrated or confused looking Fey possibly dealing with Kermit, who was mistakenly placed in the prison. The antagonist in the film, Constantine-the-World’s Number One Criminal, looks exactly like Kermit.
UPDATE: The image has been removed at the request of Disney.
In The Muppets … Again! the characters head out on a world tour, “selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas,” the official synopsis reads, “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, portrayed by Ricky Gervais.” Modern Family’s Ty Burrell will co-star as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
Be sure to check out our first official look at The Muppets sequel which features Gervais, Kermit, and Miss Piggy having fun on set.
The Muppets … Again! opens March 21, 2014. Thanks to Collider for the tip.
