"Muppets Most Wanted" Presentation at D23 Expo in Anaheim, California

Some highlights from those in attendance:

A longer and more detailed trailer for "Muppets Most Wanted" was showcased.Tina Fey was seen singing and more of the plot was revealed showcasing lots of good Muppet humour. 

The trailer made a big deal about Kermit's resemblance to Constantine.

@MuppetWiki tweeted that there was a gag where "Fozzie has a newspaper with a mugshot of Constantine. Fozzie puts his finger over Constantine's mole and Walter says, 'Hey, it's Kermit!' Fozzie takes his finger away, and Walter says, 'Wait! Where's Kermit? Where did Kermit go??'"

Ty Burrell was there and drove onstage in the car that was seen in the teaser trailer. Spoke about his role as Interpol agent Jean-Pierre Napoleon. Ty Burrell's French Interpol agent is paired with Sam the Eagle. Sam plays a CIA agent and he and Jean-Pierre Napoleon are forced to work together.

A video of Miss Piggy, Tina Fey, and Kermit on the London set was shown. Miss Piggy forced Kermit and Tina Fey to wear "P23" t-shirts (Piggy 23). When asked what the 23 stood for, Miss Piggy responded "my age". Tina Fey turned and mouthed "No" to the camera.

Kermit introduced a musical number scene. The song, called "I'm Number One, You're Number Two" features Constantine and Ricky Gervais's Dominic Badguy (according to @MuppetWiki pronounced Bad-gee). Constantine leads the song and tells Dominic "Dance, monkey, dance" The song was a BIG hit. 

Miss Piggy's dog, FOO-FOO is in the film!!
