Disney Gets Things Started With Muppets Movie Sequel

The Muppets are joined by director James Bobin, left, star/co-writer Jason Segel, co-writer Nick Stoller and music supervisor Bret McKenzie

Disney’s rejuvenation of Jim Henson’s Muppets franchise with a new film last year not only introduced a new generation of fans to the characters, but also made bank — nearly $155 million worldwide — attracted all kinds of cross promotion and even won an Oscar for best original song. So, it should come as no surprise that a sequel is in the works.

Variety reports the follow-up will be written by Nicholas Stoller, who collaborated on the first film with star Jason Segel. The actor  won’t be co-writing the sequel because of commitments to How I Met Your Mother, This Is 40 and other projects, but director James Bobin will be step in to help Stoller.

The sequel has been talked about by everyone, including Miss Piggy and Kermit on the press tour, but now it’s official.
