It’s time to play the music. It’s time to light the lights. It’s time to get things started with “The Muppets…Again!”

Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang will return to theaters on March 21, 2014 for the sequel to their 2011 blockbuster. The official synopsis for the film is as follows:

Disney’s “The Muppets …Again!” takes the entire Muppets gang 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, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
