Kermit The Frog has been invading the Tower of London recently…or is it someone else that looks a lot like him?! We’ve discovered some shots that might not be as straight-forward as you think, plus it’s backed up by Kermit The Frog’s original chat about the storyline and what’s happening in THE MUPPETS…AGAIN! Basically, he’s due to have a doppleganger (and maybe a small mole on this alternative frog’s face?) and this might cause a bit of a problem for our mighty Green cult legend. Here are his original words:
The idea of this film is that our gang is on this global tour, and we’re selling out these grand theaters all over Europe—in Berlin, Madrid, London—but we sort of get into a little bit of trouble when we run across my doppleganger. He’s the world’s number one criminal, Constantine, and he happens to look an awful lot like me. I won’t tell you any more than that, but let’s just say mayhem ensues…
We talked about putting me in make-up and having me play both roles, but we decided Constantine needed to be a guy who could do a Russian accent. And, you know, I’m a pretty accomplished actor and all, but besides the Muppet Christmas Carol and Muppet Treasure Island films, I’ve only really ever played myself. The great thing is, I have like 3,000 relatives back in the swamp, so it was quite easy to find a frog who could play Constantine.
And now, possible spoilers but in honesty, we don’t know what any of this means yet but it’s great to see The Muppets in London! The film also stars the brilliant Tina Fey and our own Brit-legend Ricky Gervais, there are also sure to be a lot lot of cameos. Check out the images:
THE MUPPETS AGAIN…is due for release in the UK and USA on March 21st 2014.
