Flight of the Concords star Bret McKenzie is back as well, with brand new numbers that are sure to be just as catchy as “Man or Muppet.” Walter revealed that the new score is “incredible,” and that he feels McKenzie has “topped himself.” And while neither he nor Kermit have a solo number this time around, they did get to take part in a lot of the big song-and-dance scenes. Miss Piggy, meanwhile, is rumored to have plenty of diva moments in this new film; Kermit estimated that she had about six musical numbers. And while she wouldn’t confirm if she did indeed get to sing the bulk of the score, she did reveal that there was one song that McKenzie wrote especially for her, which she described as “an old dance hit” that would have everyone in the theater grooving along. The song Kermit’s most excited for, however, is actually sung by Fey when he first arrives at her prison: “she sings a great song called 'The Big House' about welcoming me to prison” that reveals just how much Nadia loves her job. Walter also agreed that it’s a song not to miss, and added that Fey “sings like a nightingale.” After all of the musical numbers that were featured on 30 Rock, we really shouldn’t be surprised.
Unfortunately for Muppet fans who are hoping for another rendition of their most famous song, Kermit has some bad news for you, revealing “We don’t do 'Rainbow Connection' in this movie.” Also gone? Much of Walter’s whistling, a special talent that he discovered in last film’s eleventh hour. He explained the reason it isn’t a large feature of the film by remarking “You don’t wanna repeat yourself, right?” That seems to be a big theme for this new film, which breaks away from much of the warm sentimentality of the last film in favor of zany adventures.
4. "Flight of the Conchords" Star Bret McKenzie, Who Won an Oscar for His Song in the Last Film, Returned to Write More Memorable Muppet Tunes
Miss Piggy: I'm actually very excited about a song that I sing that Bret McKenzie wrote just for moi. I was his muse. I also have a song that I do in the movie, an old dance hit, and I'm gonna bringing it back to the clubs. It's gonna be a whole new craze all over again. I can't tell you what it is though.
Kermit: My favorite is one called "The Big House." I end up in a Russian gulag where the chief warden is Nadia, played by Tina Fey. She sings a great song about welcoming me to prison.
Walter: Oh my gosh, the music in this film is incredible. I don't actually have my own song in this one but I do sing on a couple of the numbers. Bret McKenzie did the music again. It's so good and there's action too. This whole thing is like an action musical. It's an actioncal. It's a musaction. He's topped himself. He really has. I do get to sing and dance but not as much as the last film because, you know, you wanna see new stuff. But the Muppets are really zany in this one. It's really classic.
