Disney officially announced today that The Muppets 2 will release on December 20, 2013. James Bobin will return as director and Bret McKenzie will once again provide music for the movie.
Few details are known at this point, but the plot is said to have the Muppets in a caper comedy (akin to The Great Muppet Caper) that takes them overseas to Europe. Jason Segel will not return as Gary, but his Muppet pal Walter will have a solid role in the movie. The only casting confirmed is that Christoph Waltz will star as a villainous Interpol inspector, but expect more casting and cameos to be announced in the coming weeks with filming due to begin in January.
