In honor of the new ‘We’re Doing A Sequel’ music video, Walt Disney Studios and Muppet Studios have provided us with a few new high resolution stills from Muppets Most Wanted (March 21, 2014), which have been added the beginning of our gallery embedded below.
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 Golden Globe-, Emmy- and SAG Award®-winning actress and writer Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.
While we’re waiting for Tom Hanks to make Toy Story 4, Walt Disney Studios and Muppet Studios has released a brand new music video for ‘We’re Doing A Sequel’ from the Muppets Most Wanted soundtrack, available to own on March 18, 2014 (now available for pre-order). On the soundtrack, the song — which was written by Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie — includes a performance with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett.
In conjunction with the Blu-ray release of The Muppet Movie: The Nearly 35th Anniversary Edition, available to own on August 13, 2013, Amazon.com is now advertising that Walt Disney Records will also be re-issuing the Muppet Movie soundtrack as well. No further details in way of track list or description have yet to be made available so whether it’s a straight release or a special edition remains to be seen.
From the very first ‘plunk!’ of Kermit’s banjo playing ‘The Rainbow Connection’ (Oscar nominee, Best Original Song, 1979), to the hysterical road trip that brings our fearless frog together with Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal and most importantly of all, Miss Piggy, join the jam-packed heartwarming hilarity, outrageous antics and big-shot Hollywood cameos.
Earlier this week, Disney Interactive and Junction Point Studio held a special exclusive event at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA to unveil brand new areas and worlds for both ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two’ and ‘Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Illusion’ as well as demo the game for the first time on the Nintendo Wii U, along with other surprises which enhance gameplay.
Walt Disney Records has released the full track list for its upcoming release titled ‘Frankenweenie Unleashed!,’ a compilation of music inspired by the Tim Burton film from popular alternative recording artists.
A feature-length stop-motion remake of the original short film by Burton, Frankenweenie is a heartwarming tale about a boy and his dog. After unexpectedly losing his beloved dog Sparky, young Victor harnesses the power of science to bring his best friend back to life—with just a few minor adjustments. He tries to hide his home-sewn creation, but when Sparky gets out, Victor’s fellow students, teachers and the entire town all learn that getting a new ‘leash on life’ can be monstrous.
Featuring original music by composer Patrick Doyle, the album also features new songs by Julie Fowlis, Birdy and the cast of the film.
