Julie Andrews: "One Step Into Spring" coming to DVD in 2014

Discussion in 'Muppet Merchandise' started by BobThePizzaBoy, Feb 5, 2013.

    Not a Muppet special per se, but a check of Muppet Wiki seems to indicate this special has enough Muppet material to have it worth mentioning that it's coming out.

    http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00B999DLS/?tag=vglnk-c485-20

    Interestingly, it seems to be from the same company that distributed the A Special Sesame Street Christmas DVD... I guess that means it'll smell like printer BO but hey, any classic Muppet material, no matter how obscure is something I'll take.

    I think Muppet Wiki usually notes video releases of productions that feature guest appearances by the Muppets, so it's not that big a deal (but it's still good this was posted on the forum).

    There's actually quite a lot of Muppets in this special, I'll have to watch it later, hopefully it's on Youtube.

    Gonzo appears briefly in part 1 but for the most part, the Muppet sections take up a good bulk of part 2.

    I wonder if the company that owns this special owns any of the other Julie Andrews specials with the Muppets. The Muppet Wiki pages don't seem to note distribution rights or production credits for these specials (except for Julie on Sesame Street being produced by ITC). That would be good to know, so we could get an idea on if Legendary Group can release any of the other ones.

    I'm happy about this! The large presence of the Muppets in this almost makes it a Muppet special in disguise. Can't wait. :)

    Julie Andrews and Muppets are two of my favorite things! I'm excited to check this out, I've not seen it before!

    That is most likely a fake, right? Cause if that's real.... that is horrible! :eek:

    Is it any worse than the cover for "A Special Sesame Street Christmas", which was released on DVD by the same company?

    I wouldn't expect anything less from the guys at Legend Entertainment Alliance or whatever their name is. At least I won't feel too bad about putting this on my DVD shelf next to my Muppet Show Muppet DVDs considering how prominent they are on the box.

    Haha, I think this may be worse. I mean, there's a season 5 Gonzo, Stock Photo Kermit (belch) and Rowlf, and Miss Piggy from a still from The Muppets. So that's just pics from all over the place. At least the pics on the SS Xmas cover were from the special. :p

    I'm sure that the cover would be better if this special was owned by Disney. But as it's owned by a company that doesn't own the Muppets (it would be interesting to know what the process is like for such releases.... since those images are stock photos instead of still images, I wonder if they needed permission to use those images on the cover) I'm not surprised by the poor cover. Though it is a better cover than the Muppets Magic from The Ed Sullivan Show cover.

    The Muppet Mindset posted a better quality upload of the cover:

    Gee, they are really pushing the Muppets the same way Michael Jackson was really promoted on the A Special Sesame Street Christmas DVD. I guess that means there will be a dubstep about firin' our im-a-gin-a-tions.

    The Amazon.com listing has a new version of the cover, which (admittedly) is an improvement over the last; includes 6% more Timmy Monster :)

    Oh Gawd, that one's even worse!
    That just looks horrible, it looks so fake! I can't believe an actual video company makes covers like that!

    My reaction to the cover art.

    At least they used (a) actual stills from the show (b) REAL Muppets and not ugly posers (c) it's got Timmy!!! That means they're one up on the filmmakers of "The Muppets"

    We wanted to give everybody a heads up that the "One Step Into Spring" DVD release with Julie Andrews and the Muppets has been postponed by Legend Group Studios until Spring 2014 to coincide with the Muppets eighth theatrical feature.

    On-line sites like Amazon still have it being released on April 23, however, you won't find the DVD anywhere. The good news is that this anticipated CBS special will be released on DVD in Spring 2014. It's not cancelled, only delayed.

    They're waiting a half-a-year to release this? :confused:

    Hopefully in all that time, they can work on better artwork for the DVD cover.
