'Muppets Most Wanted' Releases Music Trailer

The Muppets can do no wrong. Their eponymous 2011 film was so successful at the box office that it's hardly any wonder a sequel is on the way. "Muppets Most Wanted" will be released on March 21, and Disney is hyping it up.

Given that the upcoming film will be a musical comedy, it's only fitting that its trailer is something of a music video. Featuring all the theatrics of a catchy tune, fabulous costumes and a Danny Trejo cameo, this promo lacks nothing.

The Muppets also drop a few snarky truths about the film industry amid the song and dance, including these amusing quips about the realities of Hollywood:

"We're doing a sequel / That's what we do in Hollywood / And everybody knows that the sequel's never quite as good."

"We're doing a sequel / There's no need to disguise / The studio considers us a viable franchise."

"We're doing a sequel / The studio wants more / while they wait for Tom Hanks to make 'Toy Story 4.'"

What's funnier than a self-deprecating Muppet? Check out the musical trailer, and then, if you're wondering about the film's plot, revisit the song-less trailer released in late 2013.
