    But if they made it like the "MUPPETS LETTERS TO SANTA" they have interviews,little commentary,bloopers and I thought THAT was good!

    Then why release it on dvd at all? I'd RESPECT that decision more. But to intentionally put nothing on the dvd, when there is plenty of space to do so...no. That's just disney doing what they are best known for: greed.

    That Disney rerelease of the original Muppet film is pathetic. I so hope fans were able to snag the much superior Columbia dvd, as they gutted that and barely had any worthwhile extras. The original Columbia dvd extras are very special.

    Yeah i mean if Disney for like, $15 made a download digital file with all the blu ray contents i could then burn to dvdr, Id even go for that. But just like the lack of good Muppet merch(or any muppet movie merch) once again Disney is kind of slapping fans in the face

    i have to disagreem greed would be releasing the DVD at the same exact price as the blu ray in every store....again im not saying that the dvd should have nothing but everyone is taking it as a personal attack as if Disney knows who has a blu ray player and who doesnt and wants to punish those that dont, which they arnt its just the ways dvds work these days...again Disney isnt the sole studio that does this and who knows maybe theres reasons behind why the blu rays have the special features...maybe its a space thing those disks hold more than regualr disks

    Space thing my foot. I have a bunch of single disk DVDs with loads of special features. This is a ploy for everyone to upgrade to blu ray. If you haven't upgraded now, there is zero point, since the next newest thing is probably a few years away.

    However, I will agree that attacking Disney is taking things to far. Attack the movie industry in general. All companies are doing this. Not just Disney.

    That's what I've been saying all thread...


    I checked out the Rango DVD at target, and the standard DVD version, while not having a huge mound of bonus features, has an alternate ending and 10 deleted scenes.

    Why there's such a refusal to either put more special features on the regular disks or even give a huge price break for them IS helping to screw itself out of the massive sales that it deserves. The Muppets need to have continuous support to see future projects, making disks for sale that are basically made for Red Box and Netflix 1 dollar rentals is NOT the way to go.

    I will not buy this release unless Disney puts the deleted scenes on it last minute.

    Hey! Maybe they'll listen and change their minds. They do check this site out from time to time.

    And there was no blu-ray release of that, so of course the DVD had many bonus features.

    A few have remarked about the poor selection of features for the 2005 movie DVD releases, and those haven't even been on blu-ray yet (blu-ray as well as HD discs were just being invented and available at the time).

    I'm still really mad that they couldn't even put a commentary! And what about the deldted scenes? That's all I need, everything else I would not have cared if they put on the Blu-Ray

    What will the iTunes version have in terms of deleted scenes and the like?
  14. Muppet fan 123

    Muppet fan 123 Well-Known Member

    I was wondering that actually. I think the iTunes Extras will have it though.
  15. Aidk321

    Aidk321 Active Member

    so maybe we should buy that instead. its cheaper and will have those features

    Aint a space thing. Since 1998 Disney has packed a lot of features into their dvd releases. But as of Tron, they put nothing on the dvd release as a kind of middle finger
  18. minor muppetz

    Back in 1998 there was no blu-ray. Laserdisc was dying, and DVD didn't have much media competition. Yeah, they'd continue making VHS for about 8 years, but those didn't have bonus features like DVDs did, and the only other competition (I recall reading about a few different kinds of disc media available at the time) went the way of HD discs.

    Right, but the question is why would it take any extra effort to do what theyve always done: put the features also on the dvd. Why release the dvd at all? I mean they stopped releasing 90's era clampshells vhs. If they care so little about the consumer who doesnt have a blu ray, then why not put the extras on the dvd(again, as they always have done)

    Press release is out, the only thing I'm confused about is will the Blu-ray+DVD combo have the same number of deleted scenes in the Wocka Wocka Combo Pack but other than that it's perfect.


    Cue complaining in 3... 2....
