News Update: August 1, 2014

AUGUST 1, 2014

Disney has been fast and loose in releasing previews of the Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray Bonus Features. Last week, we got previews of Ricky Gervais’ bloopers and Rizzo’s letter to the filmmakers. This week, we get to see the entirety of the Statler and Waldorf Cut of the film. Enjoy!

Even more bonus features were shown off this week, with a preview of Tina Fey in the Muppets Most Wanted Blooper Reel. Watch the hilarity!

According to sources, It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie is being released on Blu-ray on October 7th. The release is already available for pre-order on Amazon, but no details about bonus features, other than general “deleted scenes” and “bloopers.” Presumably, these features will be exactly the same as the DVD release of the TV movie from a few years ago. It should also be noted that this release comes from NBC-Universal, not Disney, since NBC-U owns the rights to the TV movie.

This week, an enterprising Muppet fan, whose daughter is too young to go to San Diego Comic Con decided to bring Comic Con to her, by creating and performing his own panel featuring Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear. The picture is below, but be warned, you may explode from cuteness. (Thanks to our friends at ToughPigs.com for finding this amazing picture!)

Disney Videos Online has released a special Disney Channel segment featuring Kermit and Constantine. The segment, “10 in 60” challenges the two frogs to answer ten questions in 60 seconds or less. Check out the video!

Disney has also released two previews of an upcoming new web series starring the Muppets. “Disney Drive-On with The Muppets” stars Walter and Pepe as they work on the Disney Studios lot. Apparently, six episodes of the series will be released very soon. According to our friend Peter Linz, these segments were filmed nearly two years ago, so it’s fantastic that they’ve finally been released. Check out the theme song and a preview of the first episode keep your eyes on The Muppet Mindset for the full episodes as they come!
