New 'Muppets Most Wanted' trailer features an evil Kermit: 'It's not easy being mean' -- VIDEO

Muppets Most Wanted

Your favorite fuzzy friends the Muppets are returning to the big screen. But this time, the sequel to 2011’s The Muppets, is hopping with evil.

In the midst of a world tour, the felt gang runs into some trouble, when Kermit the Frog is framed for a crime he didn’t commit. Instead, the villain is a very similar-looking fellow – Constantine, “the world’s most dangerous frog,” should send ripples of fear down your lily pads.

Ricky Gervais also stars as Constantine’s sidekick, Dominic Badguy (“it’s French”), along with a chilly Tina Fey (with a Russian accent), and a bumbling Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon. Keep your eyes open for the flurry of other famous faces that make a cameo in the film.

Watch the new trailer below:

Muppets Most Wanted arrives in theaters March 21, 2014. (Update: We hear there’s a special Easter egg in the trailer. Hint: Those numbers on Dominic’s business card aren’t there for naught …)
