The New Muppets movie is one that many of all ages can enjoy. As a kid I remember growing up watching the Muppets after school at the babysitters. The Muppets started in 1976 and have been on the air in some way or another. From new episodes, to re-runs, a list of movies, to Sesame Street, the Muppets are known throughout different generations.
The Muppets have no plans to go away and are many children’s friends on Sesame Street. Kermit has been around since 1955, and I do not think he plans on going anywhere for a while.
Disney’s The Muppets brings the cast back in this family comedy. It stars a live cast which includes Jason Segel, Academy Award-nominee Amy Adams, and of course Kermit and Miss Piggy. The Muppets are on a mission to save Muppet Studios by putting on a benefit show. An oil baron Tex Richman wants to demolish the studio to dig for oil, but the Muppets will not let that happen. After going their separate ways, the Muppets have to reunite for their common goal to raise $10 million to save Muppet Studios. Just imagine how much can happen.
The film was directed by James Bobin (Flight of the Conchords) and produced by an Academy Award nominated team of David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (The Fighter & The Proposal). The screenplay was written by Segel & Nicholas Stroller (Get Him to the Greek) and many other talented names make up the production team.
This new release has a couple of different movie packs available.
The 3-disc Wocka-Wocka Value Pack includes 1 Blu-Ray disc, 1 DVD, a digital copy (great for iPads), and a digital card to download the entire soundtrack. The Blu-Ray discs include the Disney intermission which is a neat feature. When you pause the movie, the action doesnt stop, the film does, but not the action. During your intermission, the Muppets will take over and entertain you till its time to restart. Also in the Blu-Ray packs is Tex Richman telling us why he turned out to not care for others. Other features include the Muppets in their first script reading, a brief making of Disneys The Muppets, audio commentary and 8 deleted scenes.
There is also a 2 Disc Blu-Ray Pack and DVD Combo Pack. There is also a DVD only copy and all packs in includes a long segment on bloopers from the Muppet Cast during the making of the film.
