    There is talk about filming in England, so most likely yes.

    Yep! I saw the news on Facebook today!!! So exciting!! I'm glad to hear Bret McKenzie will be returning to write the music again. But they had already said they felt pretty confident they could get him again. I have a feeling the release date will probably stand as I'm sure Disney doesn't want it out around Thanksgiving since the last film was released around that time. And of course they need to remind us AGAIN that Jason won't be returning. :rolleyes:

    I do hope that if the score is as good in this film as it was in the last one that it's on the soundtrack this time!!!! Now we can start singing:

    "Everything is great, everything is grand
    Because we have a whole new Muppet movie in the palm of our hands."
    Considering their gonna be shooting in two months it's really not surprising news continues to come in.

    Very nice news updates going on here...a filming location, potential release date, all kinds of stuff...

    And a release around Christmas would be pretty nice...

    Though last year it was supposed to be a Christmas release, but it ended up at Thanksgiving...

    Yeah I had thought of that too but I also keep thinking they might not want another Thanksgiving release. Disney might want this one as their big Christmas release.

    My only issue with a Christmas release is, in a way, the fact that it could be bad for the merch aspect, as people are already getting bombarded with toys around that time. Then again, more merch sales would be good around that time...

    Pshh when it comes to Muppet merchandise they can bombard me till the pigs squeal. :p My mind is thinking Disney is hoping after seeing the movie people will wanna rush out and buy the toys anyways. Which also means they would wanna have it out on blu-ray/DVD by Easter to capitalize on those sales as well.

    I'm sure that's why they were pushing for a summer release to begin with so they could've had it out on DVD by Christmas to bring in sales.

    I'm just really excited to be able to actually experience my first Muppet movie with you guys at MC...I just think back to how lonely the last one must have been for me without a group of Muppet fans to gush to about it...

    Same here to be honest. My husband loves the Muppets but his fandom is nowhere near my level. :p I'm also excited too cause that means more merchandise for me for Christmas next year as well. :D

    And this doesn't have any relation to the movie but I am excited this will be my first Thanksgiving and Christmas here at MC. :)

    Yeah, same with me for the first paragraph (though I don't have a spouse to talk about in this case...). I really don't know anyone in real life to the extent of anywhere near my fandom...I mean, my dad is a casual fan who is somewhat well versed in Muppet knowledge, but nowhere at all to my extent.

    I am also excited for my first holiday season here...I just love this place...

    If it wasn't for my spouse I would have no one to talk to about Muppets either. My friends and family just wouldn't get it so I don't even bother.

    Yes well we know that "The Muppets 2" is not the definite title. But I guess for now that's all we got. :p
