    movies do that all the time...its just an angle that wasn't used in the final cut......each scene in the movie was probably filmed from 5 different angles...people and things get cut out all the time, basically its so as they film the dancers they wouldn't have had empty spots behind them of nothing but buildings and street

    notice in the same video we see the director looking at 4 different monitors but the same scene being filmed
    editor probably felt that scene didnt look right or it didnt come out that great and didnt use it

    I am so P.O.ed right now. I don't know what and why Disney does that. I just hate Disney! I don't even have a blu-ray player and I don't plan to buy one anytime soon. :grr: I'll just have to wait till someone puts it online.

    not to be that guy but i feel it must be said...i think we are Putting to much blame on Disney as if they are the only ones that do this....remember this isnt just a Disney thing but a Blu Ray thing...every studio does it not just one..im not saying disney isnt without fault they couldve done something about it and been different but its not just them that do this.

    again im not saying this to be like..."BLU RAY IZ TEH BEST..ALL OTHERS SUCAKGE" plus rays expensive...there will be some movies i still get on DVD even though i own a blu ray player...theres some movies that prob even though i enjoy wont be worth the blu ray price...example ..."Whats your Number?" a movie im in...i didnt by the blu ray cause its almost 9 dollars more for one random feature...yet both versions are extended and keep all my parts

    Yeah. Don't single Disney out for this crummy move. Every studio is somehow compelled to put all the special features on the premium disk. I'm almost surprised Disney's even bothering to put the blooper reel on the regular disk. And it's big films too... Smurfs, Green Lantern, even with Dreamworks's Double Disk specials with new half hour special movies on them. The regular disks have nill.

    Still, somehow Disney should at LEAST have put the deleted sequences AND the full Tex rap on the single standard edition. I don't care about the parody trailers (they're on the internet after all), I don't care for a documentary, I don't even want commentary. Just the scenes taken out of the movie.

    Excatly the point. The studios do decide what goes on what disc. In What's Your Number (BTW congrats on getting in that movie) both disc's are extended and there's only one extra bonus feature. The Blu-ray of course would have more, BUT they could have put a little more that just that blooper reel. (in The Muppets, of course) I mean come on! What about the deleted scenes? What about the commenttary? What about the featurette? The table read? And they're still charging 20 bucks for that DVD! And that's not even with the soundtrack card! Why should I pay 40 bucks for The Wocka Wocka Value Pack for a bunch of bonus features? It doesn't make sense, &$#@^ Disney!

    I swear they're trying to rush obsolescence. They just want to get Blu-Ray a good couple of years before everything's digital. 20 bucks for something that bare bones? They're screwing the fans and themselves on that deal. No one's going to want to pay 20 bucks for it... it's not even worth a cheap 10 dollar bargain disk.

    Forcing us to either pay 30 bucks or more on a special 2 DVD pack for extras we can't even see unless we have that player or to do without is extortion.

    Hey, look at it this way; it could be worse.

    A recent trend even beyond limiting special features to the Blu-Ray version seems to be limiting special features to the 3D Blu-Ray, which costs even more.

    As a Blu-Ray owner it makes me even more grateful seeing this thread, I hope you guys can find some way to get it to work out in your favor.

    i have a feeling and even heard from sources 3D will die before blu ray does....its not making the money they hoped it would....and can you really say your shocked?

    I don't have a blue ray player yet but at least they are backwards compatible so we don't have to replace our DVDs. I guess I'm fine with buying the blu ray package to get bonus features that I can watch eventually (I think we'll all have to upgrade as I don't see blu ray as just a fad but more of the standard format just as dvd replaced vcrs)...3d on the other hand I can't see anyways so I hope that doesn't ever become standard. I don't get why they have special players and tvs when you can do basic 3d on dvds (like coraline).

    It's a way to make a few extra bucks, I'd buy a 3D DVD, but they make it that you have to have a special Blu-Ray 3D Player, plus the 3D Disc is about 50 bucks so it's not worth it for me anymore.
    The deal is good for the people who have a Blu-ray player, but there are a large number of people who still have DVDs and that's the reason why they still make DVDs. I just don't feel like spending 20 bucks on the regular DVD when all there is is the movie. (No commentary, no deleted scenes, NOTHING, except a blooper reel)

    As a Blu-ray owner though full-time student who pretty much lives on his laptop, I do use both Blu-rays and DVDs. When I buy a combo pack, I expect to inevitably just get the movie on the DVD, so I'm used to it. As for the DVD owners here, I understand the frustration. But this is getting way too deep. Yeah, having just a blooper reel does suck but it's better than nothing. I think I'm just going to stop reading this thread until all of this dies down.

    I know, but it's kinda frustrating when you have to spend $20 for a plain movie and a blooper reel. They didn't even put in the commentary. (Now that doesn't make any sense). Or the deleted scenes, I wasn't expecting any more for the DVD. I'm just still very mad about it. I hope they change it, or I shall never say the D-I-S-N-E-Y word

    i think certain members...not point fingers or saying names...are taking this as a personal attack from disney and they need to get out of that mindset

    as if Disney personally knows they dont have blu rays players and is just sitting at the window going.."nanny nanny boo boo"

    Trust me, I understand. Remember 7 years ago when Disney re-released the Muppet movies they own for the first time and all we got on each disc was a single "Pepe's Profile" featurette (The Muppet Christmas Carol DVD notwithstanding) - and those were the same price as this DVD we're getting now! I can understand the frustration, trust me - I'm buying the combo pack but I know the DVD will be played much more often than the Blu-ray. For you guys' sake, I'm hoping that this is just an error by Disney and there will be a couple more bonus features than the blooper reel - if just the commentary and maybe half of the deleted scenes.

    True, all we got was the Pepe Profiles, but for things like the Muppet Movie, I don't know if Disney even has the deleted scenes.
    But over here, it's not just that all they're releasing is the blooper reel, they're releasing an entire list of stuff, and the DVD. Nothing.
    I sent an email to Disney through the support department, it probably won't help much but it's worth a try.

    You know what really got me annoyed, I was just saying to myself, OK, I'll buy the Combo Pack, So I'm on Disney.com checking the Bonus features on the combo pack and I expect to see the Bonus Features listed on the DVD from the combo pack, and i realize that EVERYTHING is on the Blu-Ray even if you buy the Combo Pack, that is so frustrating, I think I'm gonna explo- BOOM!! :crazy:

    I don't have a Blu-Ray player and don't plan to buy one until my DVD player dies (even then I'd get a DVD/Blu-Ray combo player). It'll be the single disc DVD for me since I already have the soundtrack on CD. It's just too bad that there wasn't more extras on the DVD, I can live with it.

    If they put it on iTunes soon, with the iTunes Extras which are basically behind the scenes and deleted scenes, im going to buy that and possibly skip the dvd/ blu ray version.
