The Muppets…. Again To Feature Classic Songs As Well As New

The Oscar-winning Conchord and The Muppets composer Bret McKenzie is back for more on the upcoming sequel, but the film is also going to feature some numbers from their classic repertoire.

Producer Todd Liberman told Movie Fanatic that the film:

has tons of new songs, and some old favorites. 

Rainbow Connection, Mahna Mahna and The Muppet Show Theme all got an airing last time out. I imagine the theme could turn up again – the plot gives the characters plenty of opportunities to play the music and light the lights, after all – but they’ll likely be looking elsewhere in the catalogue for other picks.

Here are my three best guesses at what they might be using. These aren’t my favourite Muppet songs, but the ones I think most likely to come back around in …Again.

In no particular order, then:

Incidentally, the way Liberman said:

We got Bret McKenzie back to do the music!

I think he’ll be the only composer of new songs on this film, unlike The Muppets.

Production on The Muppets… Again is underway now for a release next spring.
