of the year’s best-loved family comedies and among the
best reviewed films of 2011, Disney’s “The Muppets,” starring
Jason Segel, Academy Award-nominee Amy Adams, and favorite
celebrity couple Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy -- debuts March
20 on Blu-ray Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On-Demand
formats. A must-own movie the entire family can enjoy, Disney’s “The
Muppets” in-home release includes the DVD and digital soundtrack
packaged together and also offered as the ultimate Muppets experience,
a ‘Wocka-Wocka Value Pack,’ which contains the movie
on Blu-ray high definition, DVD and Digital Copy (three discs),
plus a download card which allows fans to own all the songs from
the film’s hugely popular soundtrack from Walt Disney Records.
Disney’s “The Muppets” Blu-ray Combo Pack, with
its flawless picture and pitch perfect sound, comes with a fantastic
slate of bonus content including the laugh out loud “The
Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History––We
Think).” The exciting release also includes the hilarious
featurette “A Little Screen Test on the Way to the Read Through,” which
follows Jason Segel, Kermit, The Great Gonzo, Fozzie Bear, Miss
Piggy and others as they get ready for the first day of production,
and much more fun.
“Blu-ray is a great way to bring the Muppets into your home
without having to worry about cleaning up after us,” said
Kermit the Frog, commenting on the announcement. “And the
behind-the-scenes extras are a revealing tell-all look at what
it took to bring our movie to the big screen. It’s a must-see
for fans of bloopers, flubs and slip-ups – which pretty much
describes our act.”
Piggy is equally thrilled at the movie’s Blu-ray release, “Now
you can watch moi whenever you want! Ooh! Lucky vous!”
fun-filled features on Disney’s “The Muppets” Blu-ray
include a groundbreaking industry first -- ‘Disney Intermission,’ a
hilarious all-new feature that allows viewers to press Pause on
their remote control and watch as the Muppets take over the screen
and entertain until the movie resumes playing. The release also
includes “Explaining Evil: The Full Tex Richman Song,” an
extended version of the rollicking rap song by villain Tex Richman
(Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper) who provides the hilarious
backstory of why he hates the Muppets. The extended version of
the song is included on the digital soundtrack and features Disney
Music Group Tenor, Nathan Pacheco. Audio commentaries with screenwriter
and star Jason Segel, director James Bobin and screenwriter Nicholas
Stoller are also included.
With the Muppet’s signature irreverent comedy, songs and
dancing, Muppet fans of all ages will cheer as the gang reunites
to put on a benefit show to save the crumbling Muppet Studios from
being razed by nefarious oil baron Tex Richman. New fans and long-time
devotees will find the rainbow connection when they bring Disney’s “The
Muppets” into their very own homes.
