Disney’s MUPPETS MOST WANTED takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theatres in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including our very own Dublin, and also Madrid, Berlin and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine-the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog-and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais. The film stars Ty Burrell as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon and Tina Fey as Nadya, a feisty prison guard.
