Between Disney’s hiring of Nicholas Stoller and James Bobin to being work on the script, and Stoller’s subsequent comments about that script, there would seem to be little doubt that a sequel to The Muppets is in the works. Nevertheless, the studio used CinemaCon to, I don’t know, doubly confirm the follow-up to the hit musical comedy, and then through the movie’s Facebook page released a teaser banner for … The Muppets 2.
No release date is included, but Disney apparently is hoping the sequel, characterized as a comedy caper in the tradition of The Great Muppet Caper, could arrive as early as summer 2013 (a target Stoller thinks is unrealistic).
