    It's official! The restored version of the Muppets first feature film, "The Muppet Movie" is coming to Blu-ray and DVD on Tuesday August 13, 2013. Find out all the official details here on this anticipated Blu-ray release.

    Since most of us will be getting the restored version of "The Muppet Movie" we'd like to mention that if you pre-order "The Muppet Movie" on Blu-ray or pre-order "The Muppet Movie" on DVD from Amazon using these links, that a small portion of your entire order will go to Muppet Central to help make future upgrades possible. It's a great way to help MC and get a great price on the movie with a low-price guarantee - if the price decreases between your order time and the end of the day of the release date, you'll automatically receive the lowest price. Thank you for supporting MC by placing orders through Amazon links on our site.

    DVDDizzy reports that the Blu-ray (which included a digital copy, but no regular DVD) will be released on August 13. Cover Art:

    Huh. The cover looks like a weird combo of the original film poster and this horrendous French DVD cover. Still, I am glad so many Muppets made it on the cover (though I'm perplexed as to why Statler and Waldorf are there).

    I'm a little worried about the seemingly soon release date and the lack of a DVD re-issue. For some reason, it makes me suspect that there may be "No New Bonus Features" (Oh Nose!!! :concern:)

    I know these are old stock photos but they've made it work, i wasn't expecting this much effort to be put into it. I love it althought take out :boo: :sleep: :hungry: and replace them with :sing::cool:

    We've known about this blu-ray release since last year, we only now know about the official release date. They've surely been planning for awhile.

    As I mentioned, it includes alternate audio tracks and a deleted scene. Is it entirely "special", no. Is there something special about it, I'd say yes. Does that mean it deserves to be on the Blu-ray? Not necessarily.

    Exactly! :)

    No! I refuse to see those stock photo puppets to be over useed on every new piece of merchandise!They have plenty of great brand new ones which they refusse to use.

    Ugh. Why does all recent Muppet stuff always have to look so Photoshop-y and cheap? This is better than a lot of it, but Kermit looks really screwy with those hands stuck on there. Oh well. At least the film inside is well worth watching!

    Why can't they either use new photo stocks or just take a photo cover with puppet posers ugh

    Well it maybe cheaply Photoshopped, but is this the first time we have ever had Janice and Dr.Theth on a Muppet Dvd,or VHS cover?

    I'm half cringing/half excited looking at this cover art. It is a great concept, I love the variety of characters (even in spite of inclusion to those not featured heavily in the plot) and the classic Studebaker front and center, but I must say it is too photoshopped (probably something everyone will be saying). One who doesn't even know what Photoshop will probably think something's a little off. Despite this, I'm still excited and I'm enthusiastic to see how the product overall turns out in August!

    In the end, does the design really matter? Yeah...there is something off about it, but its still better than the Disney dvd release a few years back. Despite it being nothing but a photoshop collage, at least it looks like there was some work put into it.

    And its an older movie that only fans would be picking up anyway, not new fans who only buy things because the covers look pretty :p

    The fact that we are getting this at all is a good sign that maybe one day we will finally get the Muppet Show seasons 4-5 on dvd. I also don't know about anyone else but I really think that this is going to be better then when they put The Muppet Christmas Carol on blu Ray. I'm hoping that they do a lot of neat and interesting things with this one.
    One feature I really enjoyed on the first blu ray was the commentary with Gonzo/Rizzo/Stalar/Waldorf/Kermit it was very fun.

    The MuppetsStudios YT channel posted the trailer and mentions in the description that there are new bonus features, including the Disney Intermission thingy.

    Well I checked amazon and it's 18$ not too bad and I liked on the cover that it said original classic and I'm shocked they didn't use the new the muppets fuzzy green M logo on this like they did on MCC

    That's really not, considering the average price of a dvd is about 15 dollars. I would have expected it to be near 25 dollars honestly
