    That would be the blu-ray if you want the most features.

    Is there any way I can find out if their will be a Wocka Wocka version being released in the UK? Or even if the DVD contains deleted scenes? Amazon UK are only listing this DVD and this bluray. Thank you in advance.

    Have you tried disney.com in your country? Wow I thought it was already out on DVD in the UK.

    Thanks for the suggestion. The film wasn't actually released here until February.

    Floyd had more than a one word line, and was his dry, sarcastic self. I approve :sing:

    Is the "Inside Walter's Trailer" feature available on the iTunes version of the digital copy or the Windows Media version or both?

    I haven't been here for a bit so I hope I'm not bumping (I think I got the meaning of that term right :o) , but after getting the Blu-ray a few months ago, I've been wanting to get some things off my chest on how I feel about it. I don't mean this to sound negative - and I hope that's not how I come across - but I can't help but feel that this release is something of a wasted opportunity and a disappointment (the horrible photoshop job on the blu-ray cover is one thing that comes to mind).

    The commentary is particularly disappointing - considering how passionate Jason Segel and Nick Stoller were about this movie and bringing the Muppets back, I was expecting a more informative track. Perhaps a more in-depth talk about the writing process and trying to get the movie made. But instead, they're mostly telling jokes with James Bobin and quite a few times not really talking about the movie. Why there couldn't have been a commentary track with the Muppet Performers, I'll never know. I personally think it's long overdue.

    And while we're talking about these wonderful, talented people who really bring these favourite characters of ours to life, I am upset that they don't get interviewed or make a single appearance in any of the extras. That to me is a disrespect and under-appreciation of their work. They are the most important part of all this and really in a lot of ways, the stars (even though we don't see them). This was also a really important movie for the Muppets (bringing them back, their first movie in 12 years, etc) and I don't see why we couldn't have had a long/in-depth documentary on all this.

    I don't mean to perhaps sound like a fan boy expecting too much, but considering we've had extras like this on DVD and Blu-ray releases for other Movies or TV Shows, I don't see why the Muppets DVD/Blu-ray releases can't have that kind of treatment too.

    Haha I've lost count of how many times I've watched mine. I'm surprised I don't need a new blu-ray yet. XP

    Rented it from a redbox for my brother to watch (I already saw it in the theater)
    Kinda bugs me that they don't include the bonus features on the rental disc. They're just trying to make you spend more money...
