Disney has released the official character descriptions for most of the main cast of the new Muppet flick, which has some surprising choices – like a beefed up role for Sam the Eagle. The site Stitch Kingdom got the descriptions from the Disney production offices, that also let slip the name of a possible new addition to the Muppet family. Instead of spoiling it here, I’ll leave you a link to it.
Here are the character descriptions:
Dominic Badguy (pronounced ‘Badgee’ – it’s French!) (Ricky Gervais) is a handsome opportunist who books the Muppets on a grand global tour. What they don’t realize is that he’s really Constantine’s dastardly sidekick aka Number Two.
Nadya (Tina Fey) is a feisty prison guard. She does her homework and is always one step ahead. Nothing gets by Nadya.
Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell) is an Interpol agent who’s charged with solving an elaborate crime spree. He’s not alone in his mission, however, as Sam the Eagle, CIA, is assigned to the same case.
Kermit the Frog enjoys the Muppets’ return to fame following their latest big-screen hit — until they kick off a global tour and he’s mistaken for the World’s Number One Criminal, Constantine.
Constantine is the World’s Number One Criminal — and a dead ringer for Kermit. Despite his prowess in all things evil, Constantine does not share Kermit’s natural talents on stage.
Miss Piggy is a fashion icon, super diva who delights in the news of the Muppets’ global tour — starring her, of course, in her best performances ever. Even better, overseas adventures are ripe with romance. Oh Kermie! (Or is it?)
Sam Eagle is a CIA agent who’s charged with solving an elaborate crime spree. He’s not alone in his mission, however, as Jean Pierre Napoleon, Interpol, is assigned to the same case.
Fozzie hits the stage in some of Europe’s grandest theaters, bringing the comic stylings of the funniest — and only — stand-up bear to a global audience. Wocka! Wocka!
Walter, a superfan-turned-actual-member-of-the-Muppets-gang, brings his voice of reason to the Muppets’ global tour. And they’re gonna need it.
Animal dreams of a drum solo in the Muppets’ global tour. A shaggy appetite with legs, Animal is a gentle soul with a knack for LOUD — but he can sense when something’s awry.
Gonzo, a poultry-loving daredevil and plumbing aficionado, makes a breakthrough in entertainment and personal injury with a new act that just oozes with European flavor: indoor running of the bulls.
