    That puts me at ease. Hopefully it will be on both. Just to be safe, I'm probably going to try for the Wocka Wocka pack. At least then I can find someone who has a Blu-Ray and watch the deleted bits there.

    I might just have to take up Disney's offer. I don't need a digital copy or soundtrack card so this plus the lithographs might end up being a good deal for me! :)

    I'm glad there's a commentary with Segel, Bobin and Stoller. Still, I would've also loved another commentary with the Muppet Performers.

    I have to say I'm not happy with the Making Of Documentary being "hasty". I really hate when Making Of Doccos are done like that! Just seems so lazy and annoying to me. It would've been so great to be treated to a long, in-depth documentary. I think this movie is deserving of it given the history behind it. I also feel it's long over-due with any Muppet DVD really - be it The Muppet Show, or other Muppet Movies.

    Good, solid bonus features. I can't wait! The blooper reel is going to have me in stitches, I can feel it.

    This may sound like an odd question, but how many Disney Movie Rewards points do you think they're giving on this?

    I would say 100-125. That usually the case.

    Well, between the two large cups of coffee I've had this morning and this news, I'm pretty much running around in little circles going, "Whoop! Whoop!" :crazy:

    I'm a little sad that the commentary doesn't include any Muppets/performers, but then I was expecting it to be Segel/Stoller anyway. I'm sure they'll be hilarious and informative. And I'm so excited for the blooper reel that I feel like all the rest is icing. :)

    Sometimes it's about availability. I LOVE how on the UHF commentary Weird Al actually calls someone (I wanna say Michael Richards) and he does the commentary from a phone. A character/Muppeteer commentary track would have been great, but I don't know if they didn't plan on one in the first place or they just couldn't get the Muppet performers to do it in time.

    Still, I rescind my complaints about deleted scenes since we're actually getting them... I just hope they aren't premium DVD exclusives. Even if they are, at least some of us can enjoy them. Hopefully they won't be cheap and have all the sequences with the other celebrities that were cut from the film.

    Anybody else a bit miffed about the lack of Toy Story short? Not that it was anything special, but I tend to think that if a movie has a short before it in theaters - that'd be a shoe-in to be a bonus feature. Yet here it's absent. It's National Treasure: Book of Secrets all over again! :attitude:

    Curious: What has been the longest Muppet blooper reel to date? MCC was only about two and a half minutes. VMX was five. MWoZ...doesn't seem to be up on Youtube anymore. If they're including Muppets at Disney World, that one's almost eight minutes long. And they ought to be including it, because, c'mon, it's Disney. If they include Kermit's Swamp Years, that goes on for about nine minutes. So we're potentially looking at 10 minutes worth of bloopers? Am I thinking about this too much? Yes. Yes, I am.

    I had a feeling Disney wasnt stupid enough to release an extra less home release. And Im pretty sure that all the extras listed are also for the dvd. I refuse to ever buy a blu ray, so dvd for me. Had this been another Tron Legacy home release(ie: nothing at all but the film itself) I woulda just torrented this sucker. But Ill gladly buy and support it given theres all the extras I assumed we'd get. So yes, time to rejoice^_^

    Im half tempted to do a reworking/re-imagining of the muppets film incorporating the deleted scenes, rearranging/editing other scenes now that im getting better with editing software:)

    There's one for MFS too, but they STUPIDLY cut them up into chapters on the DVD release so you have to watch each and everyone separately. I never timed it.

    If it comes down to a couple extra little things here and there for the Blu-Ray exclusive version, I don't mind one bit. An extra-free release would be insanely stupid. I get the whole Blu-Ray combo One for the ultimate living room entertainment experiance, one for the little snot eaters' rooms to scratch up and color on bit... but, like I said, the blu-ray exclusive NEEDS to be the fact that it has a few more interactive bits and a higher definition.

    I almost never get around to watching movies when I watch the special features. My first disk of the Incredibles is pristine, but the second disk must be pretty worn by now. Now THAT was a DVD release. I LOVE the second disk, and all the behind the scenes footage and the Clutch Cargo parody on it.
