BURBANK, Calif.

Also included on Blu-ray and Digital HD are additional hilarious bonus features, including Statler and Waldorf’s version of the movie, and the laugh-out-loud gag reel, “The Longer, Longest Blooper Reel in Muppets History.”

 

This most sensational, inspirational, celebrational home entertainment release also includes the featurette “Rizzo’s Biggest Fan” and music video “I Can Give You What You Want,” performed by Bret McKenzie.

 

Starring Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, The Great Gonzo, Animal, Ricky Gervais (“The Office”) as Dominic Badguy, Ty Burrell (“Modern Family”) as Jean Pierre Napoleon and Tina Fey (“30 Rock”) as Nadya the Prison Guard, “Muppets Most Wanted” also features very special guest appearances by Tony Bennett, Sean Combs, Rob Corddry, Celine Dion, Josh Groban, Salma Hayek, Ray Liotta, Ross Lynch, Chloe Grace Moretz, Christoph Waltz, and more!

 

“Muppets Most Wanted” was directed by James Bobin (“The Muppets,” “Flight of the Conchords”), written by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller (“The Muppets,” “Get Him To The Greek”), and produced by David Hoberman (“The Muppets,” “Beverly Hills Chihuahua”) and Todd Lieberman (“The Muppets,” “The Fighter”).

Very cool. Looking forward to it - hilarious movie. Here's hoping the "Statler and Waldorf Cut" bonus could be quite funny, too, in a faux MST3K style perhaps?


"And now the reprimand, from an American critic. He reproaches me for using film as a sacred & lasting medium, like a painting or a book. He does not believe that filmmaking is an inferior art, but he believes, and quite rightly, that a reel goes quickly, that the public are looking above all for relaxation, that film is fragile and that it is pretentious to express the power of one's soul by such ephemeral and delicate means, that Charlie Chaplin's or Buster Keaton's first films can only be seen on very rare and badly spoiled prints. I add that the cinema is making daily progress and that eventually films that we consider marvelous today will soon be forgotten because of new dimensions & colour. This is true. But for 4 weeks this film [The Blood of a Poet] has been shown to audiences that have been so attentive, so eager & so warm, that I wonder after all there is not an anonymous public who are looking for more than relaxation in the cinema." - Jean Cocteau, 1932

Brandon,

Was this a good Muppets movie?I love the Muppets.  Thought their comeback over a year ago was

great.  Was hoping this film was just (or nearly) as good.

I thought it was better than The Muppets (2011) by a slim margin. I'd go 8/10 for the previous film, and 9/10 for Muppets Most Wanted. Definitely some of their funnier songs, and some zanier comedy, and while not as nostalgic as the previous film it still had a few "feel good" Muppety sentimental moments. It's not perfect, and with so many jokes not all of them hit, but I laughed from start to finish. Also has the best assortment of celebrity cameos since the original Muppet Movie (1979).

I think the critic who called it "The Good Muppet Caper" got it right.

 

I wonder what's in those 12 extra minutes. It's nice to know Disney didn't forget they could always use seamless branching.


Enough is enough, Disney. No more evasions or excuses. We DEMAND the release Song of the South on Blu-ray along with the uncut version of Bedknobs and Broomsticks on Blu-ray. I am going to boycott The Walt Disney Company until then.

August 12 is going to be an obscenely expensive day...

 

I'd go the opposite of Brandon. I thought the first Muppets was better because the things I expected to see in a Muppets movie (the entire TV show opening song, for instance) is there. The songs were better and it felt fresher. In the sequel, the characters are all idiots for no reason other than to make the movie. If they had a shred of intelligence, there wouldn't be a movie.

 

But we did see Most Wanted in the theater opening weekend...and enjoyed it. So...yeah.

Most Wanted was a lot of fun, and had that Muppet feel. My kids and I look forward to the BD.

Didn't the Pixar short, Party Central, precede this movie theatrically?  Is it not among the bonus features on the home video release?

Yes it did. I'd expect it to show up on another release at some point.Sent from my VS920 4G using Tapatalk

Believe Amazon and Disney are having similar contract negotiation troubles to the Warner debacle not too long ago.

Apparently, as with CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER, this is another pissing contest between Amazon and a vendor-- in this case, Disney. Good luck with that, Amazon.

Thanks! That was my suspicion, but I couldn't find any discussion about this.

I preordered it the first week or so it became available.

 

Those orders will ship.

 

I just cancelled my order, however, and decided to make it an obligated

selection through the Disney Movie Club.

Ditto, Ron, except the DMC piece. If the price doesn't come down, the preorder is going to be cancelled.

Also preordered through DMC, as they run these nice double feature promos, so I got the 2D Little Mermaid at a discount. I like the pre-orders through DMC, especially when the discs arrive 6 weeks ahead of street date (Hercules and Tarzan).

Mine just shipped today from Disney Movie Club along with Bedknobs and Broomsticks, and Adventures of Ichabod/Fun & Fancy Free. Due to the special club offers it came to less than $16 per Blu-ray for me.

I wonder what's in those 12 extra minutes.

 

Lots of scene extensions.  I watched the theatrical DVD as I watched the extended BD and found lots of little bits 'n' pieces added to the longer cut but nothing I'd call a true "new scene"...
