The Muppets wish you a Happy New Year

3 January 2014

With a countdown that can’t count.

You may have noticed from the different numbers on your calendar that it is now 2014, and everyone’s favourite cloth-faced hand-operated puppet pals, the Muppets, are here to wish us a happy new year.

Two short promos have debuted in support of Muppets Most Wanted, the sequel to 2011’s joyously silly reboot The Muppets. Each has an auld lang syne feel, with one demonstrating a particularly poor grasp of counting.

The film sees the fabric friends visiting cities like London, Berlin, Madrid, and Dublin - and naturally bumping into a bunch of famous faces along the way.

The non-Muppet cast includes Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais, and Ty Burrell.

Flight of the Conchords director James Bobin is returning to direct and co-write, with fellow Conchord Bret McKenzie and Nicholas Stoller on songwriting duties.

Muppets Most Wanted is released to UK cinemas on 28th March 2014.
