What's Going To Be On The Muppets Blu-Ray? UPDATED With Official Specs

We’re still waiting for The Muppets to reach UK cinemas on February 10th, but the US are now sitting patiently for the eventual home entertainment release on March 28th.

I’ve been keeping an eye on the film’s Amazon page to see when the Blu-ray and DVD specs were uploaded, and it hasn’t happened yet…

…but I have just received an e-mail from a fellow Muppet fanatic carrying a break down of what we can expect on the Blu-ray. For now, this isn’t a final list, but it will give you a good idea of what to expect.

  • The longest Muppet blooper reel ever
  • A behind the scenes featurette “Scratching the Surface”
  • The complete Tex Richman song in a featurette called “Explaining Evil”
  • The table read – The Muppets get together and read the film’s screenplay before production begins
  • The parody trailers
  • An audio commentary

Not quite all I had hoped for – and note that there’s no sign of the deleted scenes with the Muppets in prison, and cameos from Danny Trejo, Wanda Sykes and more.

According to my colleague in Muppetlove, these aren’t likely to appear on the disc at all. For now, there’s apparently no plans to release them anywhere.

UPDATE: The officially released specs DO include the deleted scenes!

  • BD Exclusive: The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History) — Includes Muppets! Stars! And One Ridiculously Long Chicken Joke! What More Do You Need?
  • Scratching The Surface: A Hasty Examination Of The Making Of THE MUPPETS — A Surprisingly Shallow But Profoundly Absurd Look At Muppets And Humans Working Together To Make Cinematic History
  • Deleted Scenes
  • A Little Screen Test On The Way To The Read-Through — The Muppets Bring The Wocka Wocka Wocka To A Routine Camera Test
  • Explaining Evil: The Full Tex Richman Song
  • Unreleased Theatrical Spoof Trailers  – And More!
  • Audio Commentary – With Jason Segel, James Bobin, And Nicholas Stoller
  • Disney Intermission – Pause The Movie And See What Happens!

But what’s this about a screen test on the way to the read through? Where’s the actual read through?

The Wocka Wocka value pack is going to contain a Blu-ray, a DVD, a digital copy and a download code for the film’s soundtrack. I’ll let you know if the Blu-ray is region locked as soon as I can find out.

Not that I’d suggest you skip this one in cinemas, not for a second. Talk about a crowd pleaser.

Roll on February 10th.
