New Henson videos coming in September
of Yahoo News
Columbia TriStar Home Video (CTHV) has announced a wide-ranging agreement with The Jim Henson Company to distribute home video product under the Jim Henson Home Entertainment (JHHE) banner. Further expanding the scope of its extensive library of home entertainment product, CTHV will act as the sole distributor of the JHHE line of video, Laserdiscs and DVD in North America and select international territories.
Loesch, president, Jim Henson Television Group Worldwide, will have overall
responsibility for all operations of the JHHE banner. The JHHE product
mix will feature the company's catalogue of critically acclaimed
feature films, television specials and series as well as new made-for-video
product. The line will include materials previously released on home
video, such as the various Muppet movies, as well as new-to-video
feature length and short-form releases.
Since Columbia Tri-Star helped to produce The Muppets Take Manhattan in 1984, it is likely that we will eventually see this movie re-released on video. The Muppets Take Manhattan was released on video in 1985 and 1991, but has long since been out of print. It is also exciting to know that Muppet titles will be on DVD, the upcoming video standard!
