WATCH: ‘Muppets Most Wanted’ ‘New Mission’ Big Game Ad (Spoilers)

'Muppets Most Wanted' New Mission AdThere are certain inalienable truths in life, one of which is that there can be only one Kermit the Frog. Event the world’s most evilest villain, Constantine, can’t approach the purity, the sanctity that is Kermit — certainly not with his heavy, thick accent and mole. Right?

Truth be told, Walt Disney Studios has already hinted at some strange goings-on in The Muppets Most Wanted, most notably with the wedding scene, but this new ad for Muppets Most Wanted, titled ‘New Mission’ pretty much just lays it all out on the metaphorical table. Somehow, someway, Constantine and Kermit have become completely indiscernible — at least physically. So when Piggy meets Kermit at the altar, who is she really marrying? We just may have to wait until March 21, 2014 to find out (or at least until the books are released on February 11).

WATCH: The Muppets’ Toyota ‘No Room For Boring’ Full Music Video

Muppets Toyota Highlander Joyride Super Bowl Ad

In addition to its sixty-second ‘Big Game’ ad for the 2014 Highlander which features ex-NFLer/actor Terry Crews playing straight man to Disney’s Muppets, Toyota has now release an extended music video for the ad’s original song, ‘No Room For Boring.’ You can see the entire music video embedded below.

With their over-the-top personalities, the Muppets teach Crews’ character a thing or two about ‘unborifying’ his lifestyle as they ‘borrow’ his sweet ride, the Toyota Highlander. The spot features humorous hijinks, dancing and surprises — and no Muppet caper would be complete without an original song. Viewers will see that with seating for up to eight human passengers or more than a dozen Muppets, the all-new Toyota Highlander has plenty of room for everything — everything except boring.

‘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 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.
