In true Muppets (read: Miss Piggy) fashion, their arrival stole the show. Rolling up with Rowlf The Dog as chauffeur, the muppets were dropped off via car at select locations along the red carpet.

I have to say, Miss Piggy looked flawless as always with her Farrah Faucet hair and shimmery blue evening gown, but Kermit was sadly lacking in the clothing department. No tux?

With fans of all ages, the Muppets Most Wanted premiere attracted the likes of Terry Crews, Tina Fey, Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell – all spotted rubbing elbows with the stars of the show and grabbing “selfies” at every corner.


Tip: If you’re an LA resident, be sure to take your family to see Muppets Most Wanted at the El Capitan. As a special treat, Kermit & Miss Piggy will perform live on stage before every showing at the El Capitan! You’ll also be able to see Muppets props and costumes with ANIMAL’s drum set and MISS PIGGY’s wardrobe – including her Vivienne Westwood couture wedding gown.

Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon. Disney’s “Muppets Most Wanted” is directed by James Bobin and produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman. Bobin co-wrote the screenplay with Nicholas Stoller, who is also executive producer with John G. Scotti. Featuring music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie, “Muppets Most Wanted” hits the big screen March 21, 2014.

  1. My daughter loves the Muppets, but I must admit that I am not a fan. Puppets freak me out. This is definitely a daddy-daughter movie.
