The Muppets gang go on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe's most exciting destinations. However, mayhem follows the Muppets overseas as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine and his dastardly sidekick Dominic.
The first Kermit was made from Jim Henson's mother's old coat, and two halves of a ping-pong ball were used for his eyes.
The Muppets are usually created from various types of foam and then covered with fur, fleece, or other felt-like material to give them their colorful appearance.
Kermit was originally a lizard-like creature, and made several television appearances in that guise.
Many Academy award winners, Grammy award winners and fabric piece have made cameo appearances in the movie.
Oscar-winner Brett McKenzie composed the score for the movie; the soundtrack covers a wide range of musical styles.
'Muppets Most Wanted' picks up where 'The Muppets' left off, though it goes in a completely different direction.
Miss Piggy sang a solo musical number in the sequel. Her wedding outfit was designed by Vivienne Westwood.
This film did not feature Amy Adams or Jason Segel.
There aren’t a lot of classic Muppet songs in this film, because they wanted to move forward with the Muppets rather than dwell on the past.
The Muppet Theater from the previous film was not used in this film.
Robin played a brief cameo in the film.
Talented actress Tina Fey, not only sang in this movie for a scene connected with her wedding in the movie, but has also shaken a leg.
There were a couple of Muppet characters in this film that weren’t in The Muppets.
Kermit does not play a dual-role in the film, because his doppelganger Constantine is played by a different actor.
Lieberman confirmed that they shot a sequence in the Tower of London, a location where major film crews have never been allowed to shoot in previously.
The crew found some technical aspects of shooting at exterior locations extremely challenging because the surfaces weren't specially designed three-and-a-half feet off the ground, forcing people to lie down on the ground or be stuffed into very small spaces.
This is the first Muppet movie that featured a wedding.
The character Kermit has been portrayed as more of an action hero in this muppet film than he has been in previous muppet films.
Walter, the new Muppet, feels he’s bonded most with Fozzy Bear out of all the characters. He loved working with cast members Ricky Gervais and Ty Burrell, because of their fantastic sense of humor.
Lieberman says that Tina Fey’s character develops a bit of a crush on him in this film.
Producer Todd Lieberman said that since 2011’s 'The Muppets' was an attempt to introduce the Muppets to a new generation and set up a foundation with a new character (Walter), this follow up, Muppets Most Wanted, will hopefully be “a boatload of fun,” with plenty of muppet craziness.
