MUMBAI: Disney has decided to make a sequel of The Muppets.The family movie, starring Jason Segel and Amy Adams alongside the late Jim Henson's puppet creations, claimed the Best Song Academy Award for Man or Muppet at the recent Oscars.
The film proved to be a hit with film fans when it raked in $ 154.8 million worldwide upon its release last year.
Segel, who co-wrote The Muppets with screenwriter Nicolas Stoller, will not be involved in the writing process this time around due to his other film and TV commitments. "My goal was to bring The Muppets back and I think that I achieved that. It was half a decade of my life and I just want to take a minute to concentrate on more human related projects," Segel has been quoted to have said.
The Muppets director James Bobin will help Stoller come up with a new adventure for Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy.
