The Original “Muppet Movie” releases its special “Nearly 35th Anniversary Special Edition” today, with NEW special features like the Director James Frawley’s “Muppet Screen Test”, and the “Disney Intermission” feature – where if the movie is ‘paused’, you get to watch humorous songs and sketches starring your favorite Muppet characters. The movie was previously released on regular DVD, but this is the first time it’s being released on Blu-Ray, and also the first High Def release too!
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the movie, it’s all about the Muppets origins and their journey to follow and fulfill their big Hollywood dreams. This movie paved the way for some pretty amazing Muppet movies, like my personal faves: The Muppets Take Manhatten, and A Muppet Christmas Carol, and of course, the “rebirth” of the Muppet Movie with 2011’s “The Muppets” and 2014’s highly anticipated “Muppets: Most Wanted”
I know I will be stopping to pick up a copy of this for my husband after work today- it’s his favorite of the Muppet features, and why not? It’s laugh out loud funny, features amazing guest stars, and is “Classic Muppets” at its finest!
