The upcoming family comedy film Muppets Most Wanted continues to build hype by releasing a short 18-second teaser trailer.

The highly-anticipated sequel to the critically acclaimed 2011 film The Muppets stars, as always, the Muppets who first made their debut 59 years ago on Sam and Friends.

Co-starring with The Muppets are English comedian Ricky Gervais as a sidekick to the main villain, Tina Fey as Nadya, a Russian gulag officer and Ty Burrell as Jean Pierre Napoleon, a bumbling French Interpol officer.  The film will feature several high-caliber cameos from the likes of Tom Hiddleston, Zach Galifiankis, Celine Deon, Stanley Tucci and two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz.

Like its predecessor, the film is set to be directed by James Bobin, notable for co-creating the TV series Flight of the Conchords. Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie, who won an Academy Award for Best Original Song at the 84th Academy Awards, is also set to return.
