Today's the day! The Frank Oz directed and Victoria Labalme produced documentary, "Muppet Guys Talking: Secrets Behind the Show the Whole World Watched" premieres on-line at muppetguystalking.com beginning at 6 am central, 5 am eastern.

For the first time ever, five of the Muppet Performers (Jerry Nelson, Dave Goelz, Fran Brill, Bill Barretta, and Frank Oz) all got together on camera and talked about The Muppets. This behind-the-scenes documentary was filmed in an all-day shoot in 2012.

We were privileged to see this amazing documentary last March at the world premiere at SXSW in Austin, Texas. After you see the film on-line, please post here and let us know your thoughts.

I was surprised by the prices mentioned here and the official World Wide Web site for the movie since the (official) electronic mail I had received regarding the movie over the past year had no mention of them or any plans to price it.

This may sound stupid, but I thought it was in the website that it would be free. But oh well if it was on Amazon Prime or Netflix I was going to pay the money anyway. But I'll still pay for this incredible film.

Purchasing the film is a great way to directly say "thanks" to the wonderful people who've given us all a lifetime of enjoyment. It's money well spent.

I did not find any thing wrong regarding that "thought" of yours and would had not described it as "stupid" if I were you (I would had not used any negative language in reference to it at all).

I was quite happy and willing to pay for the Below Stage Pass. This is gonna be fun!

I just finished watching the documentary and my Frog am I just so emotional right now! Jerry had me crying, Frank and Dave had me giggling, Bill was just...well...Bill being all amazing and Fran won my heart all over again. Great stories, amazing memories and brilliant laughs!

Guys, I'm officially back in the Muppet fandom if it means that these five are going to continue collaborating. This was the exact push I needed!

I know it's money well spent, but I wasn't expecting the prices at all!

Oh well, anyway, it's fine. They deserve to get some money off this anyway! :smile:

I would had mentioned plans to price the movie several days or months in advance if I were one of its promoters (it would had been very helpful for certain folks who might had wanted to see it and/or hear it).
