    Hi all, :)

    Sorry if this has been posted anywhere else, but I can't see it.

    'The Muppets' is now up for pre-order in the UK with a release date of June 11th 2012!


    It has the same artwork as the US, but we aren't going to get Blu-Ray/DVD combos or a digital copy, but that's ok with me.

    The special features on the Blu-Ray are:

    ·The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History*) *We Think
    ·Scratching The Surface: A Hasty Examination Of The Making Of The Muppets
    ·A Little Screen Test On The Way To The Read Through
    ·Deleted Scenes
    ·Theatrical Spoof Trailers
    ·Audio Commentary With Jason Segel, James Bobin And Nicholas Stoller

    Sadly the DVD just has "The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History*) *We Think"

    At the moment Amazon has the Blu-Ray for £16.09 and the DVD for £12.99.

    If you order the DVD or the Blu-Ray from Amazon before 23.59 BST on Friday, March 30, 2012 and use promo code ‘MUPPETS1' you get £1 off! More info here: http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/feature.html?ie=UTF8&docId=1000625343

    I've already ordered the US version, but I might get the UK version as-well, when it comes out!

    Good news! On the Sainsburys website, they have 'The Muppets' up for pre-order for £9.99, and it comes with an exclusive show sampler disc! On there site the Blu-Ray doesn't come with the disc, but that could change.

    I hope we get some other uk exclusives. Just not DVD of shows we already own??

    *sigh* How come the bluray gets all the extras? I don't own a bluray player. Not sure if I can play them on my laptop or not. *another sigh*

    Yay! Let's hear it for Disney - ripping off Muppet fans all over the globe!

    Let's have three big cheers!

    Are you really that surprised? It wouldn't be their first time. LOL!

    Surprised? No - this kinda thing is why so many people were leery about Muppets being owned by them way back in the first place.

    Severely disappointed? Yes. A lot of us thought they were really doing right by the Muppets and getting pretty expert about pleasing the fanbase...and then they pull stunts like this making all the latest great Muppet treasures available to half its fanbase...on a release that ironically celebrates and is about Muppet fans to begin with.

    I at least wanted to hope at least one of the international market wouldn't have had to go through those silly games - but looks like they're following the same plan everywhere. Plus if at least one country put the good extras on dvd, then someone with a regionfree player could access them and start up the process of a trading tree or something to get the rest of the fans to see them.

    Like I said before, it isn't just Disney. Let's put the blame where the blame is due, Don Sonyone. Disney is apparently allergic to giving any of it's standard DVD's any special features of any kind, and it's treatment of the Muppet movie is no different from their bare bones rerelease of The Lion King.

    Disney where dreams come true. LOL!

    You didn't read the fine print. It's really:

    Disney: Where Dreams Come True!
    As long as you have a ton of money and a blu-ray player.

  14. Pinkflower7783

    Pinkflower7783 Well-Known Member

    ROTFL!!!! Trust me that "ton of money" isnt just for their blu-ray/DVD releases. But we say that about Disney but let's face it most of the big entertainment cooperations are just runned by a bunch of greedy Tex Richmans. :p

    Is the UK version of the movie any different than the american one?
  16. Hubert

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    Yep. That's the problem with anyone in the entertainment business these days. Their priority list's first 16 bullets say the same thing: Money. Really, they'll do anything to get it. And I mean anything! No one cares anymore about making healthy entertainment. Instead they just put on whatever inappropriate R-rated thing they can find. Why? It sells! Yeah, I know, R-rated is a bit of an understatement. X-rated would be the better term. :p

    ...And yet it never occured to anyone that if they put the great extras on BOTH the dvds and the blurays that they'd make MORE money because of the people who may have passed on buying the dvd because of the lack of bonus features.

    It's a simple idea - put out something people really want to buy and they'll buy it and you'll get money. Where is the money in angering consumers and giving them what they don't want?
