In the 1960’s, Jim Henson created The Muppets, dawning a new era of puppet entertainment for the young, old and everyone in the middle. Twelve years after the last theatrical release, The Muppets are back in a fun new musical parody starring Jason Segel, Amy Adams, Chris Cooper, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and the rest of the gang.
Walter, the newest Muppet, travels to meet his Muppet idols with his brother and his girlfriend (Segel and Adams), only discover a plot by an evil oil tycoon to destroy the Muppet Studios.
It’s non-stop entertainment from beginning to end. Every member of the cast has a world of fun with their characters and jabs at movie clichés every chance they get.
Jason Segel and Nicholas Stoller wrote the screenplay and all of the incredibly memorable songs (Beware: you’ll be singing them for days after watching the movie).
This super home release includes a Blu Ray, DVD, and Digital Copy, as well as a copy of the soundtrack. Could you ask for anything more? Disney thought you would, so they included a bountiful array of special features, including Scratching the Surface: A Hasty Examination Of The Making Of The Muppets, Deleted Scenes, A Little Screen Test On The Way To The Read-Through, Explaining Evil: The Full Tex Richman Song, Unreleased Theatrical Spoof Trailers, Audio Commentary with the writers and director, The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History), and Disney Intermission. Lots to explore!
They’re all self-explanatory, but the coolest feature is most definitely the Disney Intermission. This feature is automatically activated when you pause the movie, prompting fun, original skits by the Muppets that keeps everyone waiting entertained.
Bottom Line: This is a jam packed home release that will tickle everyone in your home.
