Disney preps ‘Muppets’ sequel

James Bobin, Nicholas Stoller to pen follow-up

Disney is moving forward with a sequel to “The Muppets” after the return of Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and friends went on to earn more than $154.8 million at the worldwide box office.

James Bobin, who helmed “The Muppets,” and co-writer Nicholas Stoller will write the script for the sequel. First film took home the Oscar for best song on Sunday for “Man or Muppet.” Bret McKenzie penned the tune.

Kermit and Miss Piggy had already announced the sequel while on an international tour for the first film, saying that the follow-up was officially moving forward during a Feb. 13 appearance on ITV’s “This Morning” daytime talker.

Jason Segel, who was instrumental in getting the first film made and co-wrote the script with Stoller, may star in the sequel, but his various projects (which include CBS’ “How I Met Your Mother” and films “The Five Year Engagement” and “This Is 40”) are keeping him too busy to pen the sequel.

“The Muppets” was produced by David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman.
