MUPPETS MOST WANTED opens in theaters on March 21, 2014!
Did you grow up watching the Muppets? I used to love that show. How could anyone resist the handsome Kermit the Frog and the sassy Miss Piggy! I had muppets on movies, books, and even plush toys. I am so excited for the new Muppets Most Wanted movie that I can hardly contain myself. I hope Em will share in the same joy I did as a child.
