BEVERLY HILLS, California (Reuters) - The Muppets' Miss Piggy and Kermit the Frog, the object of her affection since 1976, return to the big screen in "Muppets Most Wanted," a caper film that takes the puppet gang on a European tour while a case of mistaken identity lands Kermit in a Russian gulag.

A sequel to 2011's "The Muppets," the Disney film introduces a new character: Kermit's evil Russian doppelganger, Constantine, who stars alongside actors Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burrell.

Miss Piggy, wearing a floral print dress with pearls, and Kermit, in his natural green, sat down with Reuters to talk about love and how many lines Miss Piggy needs in the script.

Q: How have you two kept it going together for so long?

Miss Piggy: Well, how do we keep it going for so long? I have no idea.

Kermit: You know, I don't have a good answer, because all I know is that it's going.

Miss Piggy: I'm not even sure it is.

Kermit: Well, maybe it's not going. Maybe it's stopped.   Continued...
