Exciting news about The Muppets… Again this week. As the Muppet performers and everyone involved with the movie are working hard filming over in London, Production Designer Eve Stewart, who was recently confirmed to be working on The Muppets… Again (after just winning a BAFTA for her work on Les Miserables), was interviewed by BBC Radio 4. While interviewed, Eve Stewart discussed her involvement with the new Muppet movie saying, “I’m now at Pinewood doing the Muppet show, and today has been one of the best days of my life, designing Miss Piggy’s wedding at the Tower of London… I’ve never been so happy.”
Whoa, whoa, whoa, Eve Stewart! Slow your motors. You’re designing Miss Piggy’s wedding?! What. Does. It. Mean?! Could Miss Piggy and Kermit finally (and unquestionably) be tying the knot in The Muppets… Again? If that’s the case, that is a bold, huge step for the Muppets to be taking in the next movie–a step that would really impress me if they do pull it off. But there is definitely another road they could be taking… with the new character, Constantine, who is a dead-ringer for Kermit other than his Russian accent. Could Constantine be tricking Miss Piggy into marrying him, convincing her that he’s Kermit? Is Piggy that gullible? Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait until March 21, 2014 to find out.
What do you think this exciting development means, Muppet fans? Are you excited by the news? Put off by another Piggy wedding? Scared by the prospect of another Swedish Chef wedding cake? All of the above? Sound off in the comments below!
