So, does this mean that, if no distributor picks it up (and they give up on looking), there won't be a DVD release at all?
This is probably true, but I would definitely say (as you've touched on) that it's highly unlikely that this film wouldn't get distributed somehow.

Don't worry. I'm sure that we will know something as soon as possible. Right now the guys who made the film have a lot of other things to focus on, what with the premiers and with interviews. They'll get a distributor without a doubt. We just need to be patient and remember that some things cannot be rushed.

By the way, is there anyone on this forum who went to see the premiere in Toronto? How was the movie from your perspectives?

The film was incredible! It was so nice to get to meet some fellow MuppetCentral people and especially amazing to meet Caroll and Debbie. Here are a few pictures from the event.

If they can't find a regular distributor, they'll probably put it up on Netflix or a similar streaming website.

They recently said in a Kickstarter update a few weeks ago that they have been getting positive feedback from distributors. That should definitely be saying something. We just need to have confidence and hope for the best.

CopperPot Pictures....... if you guys are reading this, we hope that it works out for you getting a DVD release of this film.

Any updates?
They have more film showings coming up in place such as Philadelphia and Brooklyn. They're also still working on getting a DVD distributor and they apologize for the wait.

So... is it not receiving a nation-wide theatrical release like they were hoping for?
