‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Spanish Poster

'Muppets Most Wanted' SpainWalt Disney Studios Spain has released a new international poster for Muppets Most Wanted (March 21, 2014) via Andromeda High. A variation on a previously released international poster, it puts co-stars Constantine and Kermit front and center while highlighting the rest of the cast, including Ty Burrell, Ricky Gervais and Tina Fey.

Disney’s Muppets Most Wanted takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling our grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid, Dublin 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.

Muppets Toyota Highlander Joyride Super Bowl Ad

Disney’s Muppets will hit the road with Terry Crews, star of the Golden Globe®-winning FOX series ‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine,’ in Toyota’s new commercial for the all-new 2014 Toyota Highlander. The 60-second spot, entitled ‘Joyride,’ will make its broadcast debut during Super Bowl XLVIII on Sunday, February 2.

‘Our game-day spot shows how Toyota Highlander puts the “fun” in function,’ said Jack Hollis, vice president of Toyota Division Marketing at Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc. ‘Toyota vehicles are built to last and can even endure the most boisterous Muppets, a former NFL player as well as a center console full of chickens.’

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ Viral Ad is Totes Da Bomb

'Muppets Most Wanted' PosterWalt Disney Studios has just released this new viral ad on its YouTube page promoting Muppets Most Wanted, most likely the first of many parody ads if 2011’s The Muppetsmarketing is any indication.

Instead of taking shots at other films, however, this particular ad pokes fun at the burgeoning marketing method of using the tweets of ‘ordinary folk,’ not actually reviewing the film, but instead just simply voicing the intent of seeing the film. All of the tweets/accounts named in the ad do actually exist (see embedded below), but they are obviously not genuine and were all generated for the sake of making the ad, embedded below.

‘Muppets Most Wanted’ to Feature Brand New Muppet? Plus Character Descriptions (Tiny Spoilers)

'Muppets Most Wanted' PosterWhen Disney produced The Muppets in 2011, it introduced a brand new character, Walter. Given Walter’s wide acceptance into the already established Muppet family — by both fans and Muppets alike, it only makes sense that the opportunity is seized in the sequel to introduce another new Muppet to the world (at least one, anyway).

The news comes to us by way of production notes for Muppets Most Wanted provided to us by Walt Disney Studios, who mentions her by name (or at all) just once and in a very manner-of-fact manner. Referring to sets that had to be built that would take all Muppet sizes into consideration, production designer Eve Stewart notes that Muppet sizes range from the seven-foot tall Sweetums to the two-foot tall Carmen. So there you have it, Carmen is two feet tall.
