The Muppets’ planned screen return, once hoped to take place late this year, will have to wait until next spring.

According to a Disney release roadmap published by Deadline Monday, “The Muppets 2″ will arrive in theaters March 21, 2014. In addition to the usual Muppet crew, the film is set to star Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and possibly Tina Fey, for director James Bobin.

Disney also announced that a mysterious film called “1952,” which is written by Lost cocreator Damon Lindelof, directed by Brad Bird and stars George Clooney, will come out Dec. 19, 2014. And a fifth “Pirates of the Carribean” release is set for July 10, 2015. Disney has said that its first “Star Wars” film will also come out in 2015, but that release date was not announced.
