In the past, the Muppets have traveled to Hollywood, Treasure Island and—of course—Manhattan, but in Muppets Most Wanted, ​out Friday, March 21, the furry megastars are going for world domination. Filming for the comic caper, which costars Tina Fey and Ricky Gervais, took Kermit, Miss Piggy & Co. to London, Berlin and Madrid. But we wanted to get the lowdown on what it's like to be a Muppet: Who's Fozzie's dream costar? What nasty rumors do they want to clear up? And who's the biggest diva of all? (Okay, that one is easy: Miss Piggy, duh.​) Read on for more bits of insight from the gang.

The best films now showing


Mr. Turner

  • Rated as: 5/5
  • Critics choice

Mike Leigh delivers a naturalistic, stunningly shot biopic about the working life of J.M.W. Turner. Timothy Spall plays the legendary painter with brave and captivating restraint.


The Interview

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

In the unlikely event that this subversive Seth Rogen comedy proves to be Sony’s downfall, at least they'll go out with a bang—the jokes are wonderfully lowbrow.


Winter Sleep

  • Rated as: 4/5
  • Critics choice

This year’s winner of the Palme d’Or is a nearly four-hour drama about a curmudgeon who lives in Turkey's remote mountains. Despite that, it’s pretty great.
