Muppets Most Wanted is the German dub of the homonymous Muppets Most Wanted. The film was released in German language theaters on May 1, 2014 (a record low 41 days after the film's US-release date).

It is the sequel to Die Muppets, and as the dubbed teaser trailer suggested, the film once again featured the newer key character voice artists that were established with the 2012 dub.

Promotion

The first German language teaser trailer for the film was released on August 12, 2013.

On March 28, 2014, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and James Bobin arrived in Berlin to kick off a number of promotional appearances in Germany. All three rode in a special XXL limousine Trabant car.

Deutsche Lufthansa promoted the film with a big sweepstakes from the beginning of April all the way into May of 2014.

Three videos with Constantine addressing the German public were released in early April 2014. A Kermit video, as well as related promotional stunts for "Save the Frogs"-Day followed.

Bavarian fashion designer Lola Paltinger designed a traditional dirndl for Miss Piggy in promotion of the film. In late April, several German YouTubers featured interviews with Kermit.

Notes

  • The film's "Muppets World Tour" brings the characters to Berlin, Germany, where their show gets the "German treatment," including a title sequence reminiscent of their Die Muppet Show days (complete with the German title), as well as traditional German (slightly misplaced, since Bavarian) costumes for the band and other characters.
  • The German language "Wanted" posters across the city, while mostly correct, feature some mock-German in the phrase "Evilen Froggen," which in order to claim correctness, would have to depict Constantine as a "Böser Frosch" instead (the phrase used on the dub).
  • Til Schweiger and Christoph Waltz redub their own cameo roles in German.
