    I'd love to have an HD quality screenshot of the finale when this comes out; it'll make a gorgeous desktop background.

    I have this weird thing about me where when new technology comes out, I end up waiting about a few years until I deside to buy it just to make sure nothing ends up like the Laserdisc. lol It took me awhile to get into mp3 players but now I just love having an ipod. Now it's time for me to get a blu-ray player. My friend told me that I need to get a whole new TV set to enjoy blu-ray to it's fullest. Which I'm a little nervious because I got a big screen TV, old one. lol

    Same here, Does blu-ray have a zoom in effect on it? I'd just love to go find the SNL Land of Gorch Muppets in the crowd at the end. I think Ploopis, Scred, Pluda, Wiss and Vash are in it but not Mighty Favog. Perhaps we went with The Beatles since I think he said in one episode he knew them very well. lol

    WHOOPIE!!!!! I'M SO EXCITED!! I hope there's going to be a Disney Intermission like they did with The Muppets and A Muppet Christmas Carol Blu-ray releases. I hope there's newly-created Muppet footage exclusive to the Blu-ray release, as well as never-before-seen behind the scenes videos and outtakes.
    OH BOY!! I'M GOING TO BLOW UP INTO PIECES!! :excited::):excited::)
    *Literally blows up into pieces*

    This trailer has been on a bunch of Disney Blu-rays since the summer but there's still been no news about a release date.

    I doubt it. They wouldn't have filmed the puppeteers so I doubt that exists.

    :D My eyes widened when I saw the message "Muppet Movie coming to Blu-ray" in my inbox, and further when I began watching the trailer. The picture quality is so sharp and colorful! I don't think the movie's ever looked this good. I can't wait to get this!!!

    That's the picture outside the "safe zone" area which is often cropped by many TV's. Hence the reason you'll see the full picture when viewing on a computer and not always when viewing on a television.

    If matte removal cropping has been used (and not full 16:9 widescreen) then you'll see more of the puppeteers as well, like in this mock-up Jamie did back in 2002.
