Somebody’s Getting Married! Miss Piggy to Wed in ‘The Muppets…Again!’

By  · Published on February 12th, 2013

Kermit and Miss Piggy famously got married in Muppets Take Manhattan (sing-along here), and according to /film, at least one of them will be walking down the aisle in The Muppets…Again. At this point, it’s pretty clear that the individual movies don’t bow down to any sort of consistent canon, although the Jason Segal-starring adventure that brought them back to movie life saw Kermit and Miss Piggy dealing with some relationship strife so the progression here makes modern sense. Maybe the joy they found will continue into the sequel, or maybe she’ll have found a new beau by then. You know, a suitor. Hopefully he’ll be bona fide.

Word comes from production designer Eve Stewart (who’s been nominated for three Oscars, including this year for Les Miserables) that she’s crafting the ceremony to take place at the Tower of London.

This sounds like a bit of fun, but I hope Disney is listening when I say this: I will pay good money if Ricky Gervais is the one officiating. Clerical collar and all.
