Early yesterday morning the Muppet fan world received some very exciting news: The Muppet Movie is finally coming to Disney Blu-ray in 2013! The trailer for the Blu-ray release of the 1979 classic was included on the Blu-ray for Disney’s not-so-classic The Odd Life of Timothy Green and thanks to YouTube user Lnds500, we can see it without having to watch Timothy Green live an odd life!
I don’t know about you, but I’m ridiculously excited to own The Muppet Movie in pristine high-definition transfer. Even the trailer looks breathtakingly crisp and clean! And of course there will probably be some new bonus features on the release to look forward to… hopefully including commentary or a behind the scenes look with the Muppet performers and not just the Muppets themselves. No exact release date for the Blu-ray has been set, but as soon as it has, you’ll see it here on The Muppet Mindset!
In other exciting news, The Muppet Movie is also now streaming instantly on Netflix! This comes as part of Disney’s new agreement with Netflix to stream their movies, so it’s very exciting that The Muppet Movie was among the first films chosen for streaming (alongside animated classics like Dumbo and Pocahontas).
