The new movie comes three years after Disney revived the franchise with "The Muppets," which made $158 million and won a best song Oscar for "Man or Muppet".The 2011 film was such a hit that Disney, which in 2004 bought the children's TV troupe created by Jim Henson, agreed to make a sequel with the same director, James Bobin.The Briton and screenwriter Nicholas Stoller may be the same, but a new human cast this time includes British comic Ricky Gervais, and Americans Tina Fey and Ty Burrell.Burrell, star of award-winning TV series "Modern Family," plays Jean-Pierre Napoleon, a heavily-accented French policeman who teams up with Sam the Eagle, patriotic and protective of the Muppets, to hunt for Constantine.Burrell joked that he ended up treating the Muppets like real people.Burrell acknowledged that he is a life-long Muppet fan, having watched the original TV "Muppet Show" as a child.
