Thirty-five years after the first "Muppet Movie," Kermit, Piggy and company are returning to the big screen with "Muppets Most Wanted." The latest offering is the sequel to the 2011 blockbuster "The Muppets".

The new film’s plot sees British comic Ricky Gervais as a scam artist who teams up with the world’s most dangerous frog, the Russian Constantine. Together, they con The Muppets into thinking they’re on a successful world tour. But the reality is that the road show is all just part of a plot to steal England’s crown jewels.

Gervais and Constantine, the latter bearing a striking resemblance to Kermit, spent a considerable amount of time together while making the film.

"Muppets Most Wanted" is the seventh "Muppet Movie" sequel, and while it portrays many locations, most of it was shot in England. If there’s a next movie, Miss Piggy says she would prefer it to be made in a different place.

"Muppets Most Wanted" goes on general release around the world starting from March the 20th, with China’s Hong Kong being among the first batch of cities for the release.
