Walt Disney Studios has provided us with a couple of new stills from its upcoming Muppets movie, Muppets Most Wanted (March 21, 2014), which we have added to our gallery of images embedded below. The new stills focus on Kermit look-alike Constantine and his number two, Dominic Badguy.
Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios UK, we have our first clip from the upcoming Pixar Monsters University short, ‘Party Central,’ which will play ahead of Muppets Most Wanted in theaters on March 21, 2014.
In the short, Mike and Sulley return to Monsters University for a fun-filled weekend with their Oozma Kappa fraternity brothers. The gang is throwing their first party, but no one’s showing up. Luckily for them, Mike and Sulley have come with a plan to make sure ‘Party Central’ is the most epic party the school has ever seen.
Walt 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.
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.
When 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.
In addition to the release of the new trailer for Muppets Most Wanted earlier today, Walt Disney Studios has also launched a small viral-type website for Badguy Management, found at BadguyTalent.com. The site provides a message from Badguy Management CEO, Dominic Badguy (portrayed by Ricky Gervais) and serves as an open call for finding new talent for Badguy (pronouned Bad-GEE — it’s French, afterall) to represent. The website also features a live phone number (213-293-5218) which doles out a small message from Badguy, but it’s not much to write home about to be blunt.

A Twitter user by the name of @gavinthomas2015 has shared a couple of images from the set of Disney’s Muppets… Again with several Muppet-oriented websites including Tough Pigs. It’s not known at this time whether the release of the images was done with the blessings of Walt Disney Studios, but for the time being, please enjoy.
IMAGES REMOVED AT THE REQUEST OF WALT DISNEY STUDIOS
The first image features the film’s villain and Kermit-double Constantine alongside Tina Fey as feisty prison guard Nadya.
