    I think they'll announce the content about a month before release.

    Well it's heavily rumoured that there aren't any extra cuts/scenes on the DVD but believe it when I read it.

    Source: http://uk.bluray.ign.com/articles/121/1216623p1.html

    Disney has been a bit shy on releasing specs for this combo pack, but the folks over at Bleeding Cool have managed to uncover some rumored details about the release. The combo pack is slated to include a commentary, bloopers, the beloved parody trailers, a table read and the complete Tex Richman song, "Explaining Evil." No word yet on whether the two-disc version will feature the same extras, or whether extras are exclusive to the "Wocka Wocka" value pack.

    Gee, if all the bonus features are all on the Blue-Ray and the DVD only has the Blooper reel I'm gonna have to buy the DVD & Blue-Ray combo pack and a Blue-Ray disc player.

    I am waiting to see what will happen when it comes on to DVD/Blu-ray in the UK, we might get extra stuff! In the UK edition of the soundtrack we have an extra track called "Dance With Me Tonight" by Olly Murs. They are pictures of Olly Murs with Fozzie in the UK Muppets/Disney site! I am guessing Olly could be on the DVD/Blu-ray discs.

    They apparently flip flopped, or that was bad information. everything but the blooper reel is blu-ray exclusive. I really hope we can get them to change their minds and at LEAST put the deleted sequences on the standard disk, but it's probably too late.

    A very bullocks move.

    I'll end up getting the Blue-Ray/DVD combo. My friend has a Blue-Ray player so I may able to work something out there. VERY stupid move on Disney's part, I'll say.

    It's not just Disney. It's all of them. It's all about selling the high end players that are going to be obsolete in a few years.

    Of all the gripes had with the movie, the one consistent one is that there wasn't enough of it. I don't like not being able to see these unless I buy a premium format and a premium player. I can live without a making of, a commentary, a blooper reel, Disney intermission, easter eggs and all that if they could just put the deleted scenes, even just the Tex Richman extended song, on the standard DVD, I'll be happy.

    I'm not saying this as sour grapes, I'm not saying this as a curmudgeon who refuses new technology, I'm saying this as a consumer who wants to support the Muppets and Disney's ownership, leading to new projects down the line, who is disappointed at the politicking that lead to the end decision.

    Does anybody here think we should email Disney Info about including all the bonus features on both DVD and Blue-Ray? just a thought.

    sweet, torrent time. *expletive deleted* Disney. Consumers shouldnt play their games. If they dont want to support dvd, then dont release a dvd. It costs NOTHING EXTRA to put the same dvd extras on the dvd. Scott Pilgrim dvd has a lot of the blu ray extras , all on one disc. Its just a BULLY tactic is all. One I absolutely will not support

    Yeah. It's ALL of them. There has to be some sort of payola and kickbacks involved. I don't mind if some extras are Blu exclusive, I don't mind if very specifically interactive extras that cannot be translated to DVD are missing. But Deleted scenes being Blu-exclusive? That's terrible.

    If and only if I can get the Poo-ray cheap and pray that I actually can find a place to play it, I'll buy it. If I get the standard edition as a gift, I'll return it.

    I'd love to know that too, or even talk about it! But didnt you know? These threads are strictly for discussing the horribleness (is that a word? Lol) of blu-ray. :(

    Yeah.. after not staying in touch withthe Muppets for a number of years I recently got back into them and the only movies I have are the two that Sony released on blu-ray. Really wanting Disney to get it together and just release the rest on blu ray now rather than wondering what their plans are and if they'll ever get released.

    Disney are great with with their blu rays when they do do them, so I'd expect them to have a few more features compared to what Sony did with their muppets releases so maybe that's one reason for the wait.
