THE MUPPETS was one of my favorite movies a couple of years ago mostly because the nostalgia factor hit all the right notes for me. Since then I’ve been looking forward to the possibility of a sequel, but remain cautiously optimistic because I feel like there’s plenty of opportunities to drop the ball and waste all the good will of the last one. Granted James Bobin is returning and appears to have a pretty good grasp of what makes the Muppets so beloved among audiences that grew up with them.
That brings us to the newly released trailer for MUPPETS MOST WANTED, which doesn’t do much except acknowledge the fact that most sequels aim to be bigger and better than the original. This trailer on the other hand, appears to almost be trying to mimick the beats of THE MUPPETS- then again this seems more like a teaser than a full blown trailer. There is every possibility in the world that this will trump the original, it’s just a little too early to tell right now. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
