The Muppets sequel begins shooting in January in London


Life's a happy song when Brett McKenzie is writing it

Last years The Muppets seemed to be a surprise success for Disney, though I'm not sure why they didn't expect it, because anyone who's seen the movie can tell you it's fantastic. Anywho, the studio got the ball rolling on a sequel pretty quickly I now we're hearing that it looks like filming will start very soon indeed, this coming January to be precise, and in London to be even preciser. Right now the sequel is scheduled for a December, 2014 release, so that gives Disney about a year to wrap everything up and put a pretty little bow on it in time for Christmas.

In other most excellent news, it also looks like Brett McKenzie will be returning to write the songs for the film. This is excites me not just because of my love for Flight of the Conchords, but because I listened to The Muppets soundtrack for like a month after the film was released. Taken with the news that Christoph Waltz is involved, I'm not sure I'll be able to manage my inner Muppet until release late next year.
