Ricky Gervais Smuggles Kermit And Miss Piggy In New Look At The Muppets...Again!

The combination of the Muppets and Ricky Gervais could very well be a genius one. The Muppets classically represent everything that is happy and awesome in this world, while Gervais is widely known for his deep, deep cynicism. It should be fascinating to see how their personalities clash on screen - but sadly there's probably a long wait ahead of us before we get to see any actual footage. So we'll just have to live with this great new still for now.

Disney has released a brand new image from the upcoming The Muppets...Again! featuring Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy being smuggled in Gervais' jacket. Check out the new image below and click to see it full size in our database (where you can also find the first official image in high-res).

Once again directed by James Bobin and co-written by Bobin and The Muppets writer Nick Stoller, The Muppets...Again! will take the fuzzy crew to Europe where they are set to visit such exotic locales as Berlin, Madrid and London. But as you could have probably predicted, soon enough chaos ensues and they find themselves at the heart of a mystery involving a great criminal called Constantine - who happens to look exactly like Kermit - and his sidekick Dominic (Gervais). Tina Fey (who plays a prison guard) and Ty Burrell (an INTERPOL agent) also star in the movie, which will surely have plenty of celebrity cameos as well.
