EDIT: Yeah, I just checked local showtimes, it doesn't look like it's coming to my town theatrically, so I'll just check it out On Demand.
No theater around me even has listings that far ahead, so I don't think you can judge that just yet.

I watched the doc at Sundance- it's explained in the movie.

Basically back in the 80s they had an idea for this "Backstage at Sesame" type of special, but it was scrapped after a handful of material was filmed. Some of it is featured on the 40 Years/Old School DVDs, other new stuff includes in-depth interviews with Oscar and Ernie & Bert filmed back in the day. So this is essentially them turning that special idea into a documentary, and all that material is used for this.
Wow. It’s a shame that the interview footage with the Muppet characters were not on the 40th anniversary set or Old School Volume 3 (or 50 Years and Counting, which barely has any bonus features).

One of the behind the scenes footage glimpsed was the Cab Calloway “I Love to Count” number that was cut from Old School Volume 3. I have a feeling that would have been a bonus feature if the segment wasn’t cut.
