The Muppet Christmas Carol is Now on Disney DVD & Blu-Ray!

There's a chill in the air, and it's putting our family in the mood for wintry things, like hot cocoa and snuggling in a warm blanket together while watching holiday movies. We haven't had a Blu-Ray player for much over a year, so we are slowly building our Blu-Ray disc collection, especially with movies we think Balian will enjoy over the years.

Look what arrived at our house last week...

The Classic Christmas Tale. With A Muppets Twist.
It’s Not Easy Being Scrooge Special Edition

The Muppets Bring a Hilarious Twist to This Classic Christmas Tale,
For the Very First Time on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack, Digital and On-Demand - November 6, 2012

On November 6, 2012, the Charles Dickens-inspired classic holiday story “The Muppet Christmas Carol,” will ring in its 20th anniversary with the Blu-ray™ debut of this family favorite.

And now, a word from Gonzo: Greetings, holiday movie fans and lovers of culture, I am Gonzo … or perhaps better known to fans of this classic motion picture as literary legend Charles Dickens. Are you ready to laugh, cry, sing, frolic, cavort and enjoy yourself beyond belief!? Well, you’re in luck, because this 20th Anniversary Edition of Disney’s “The Muppet Christmas Carol” is guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit that will stay with you forever—or at least until your Aunt Edna starts complaining that nobody is eating the
fruitcake she brought … again!

Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray with high definition sound and picture, so you can enjoy even more of my blue-ness, not to mention the incredible spectacle of Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor, 1999, “The Cider House Rules”) as Scrooge, wonderful songs by Oscar® winner Paul Williams (Best Original Song, 1976, “Evergreen” from “A Star Is Born”) and, of course, my pal Rizzo the Rat as … well, Rizzo the Rat.

This is a heartwarming and hilarious holiday classic, told as never before by yours truly!  Yule love it!

'Gotta watch this, mommy!'

Our Thoughts...

This classic tale is one of our favorites, and the special 20th anniversary edition of the film  is truly sensational. It's always cool to see how advancements have been made, and how our favorite movies look on the big screen, when on Blu-Ray. This heartwarming tale is probably a little beyond where Balian can catch on, but because the run time is close to 89 minutes, this is a movie he can sit through and enjoy. Balian is a big fan of the Muppets, and has been enjoying watching Kermit and Miss Piggy, among other favorite Muppet friends. I love Michael Caine, and enjoyed his performance as Mr. Scrooge. The musical numbers are fun, and catchy- dance worthy, as Balian would say!

The movie is giving me a window of opportunity to point out things that are nice, and things that are not nice, to my perceptive toddler. The effects in the movie are a lot of fun, and seeing it in HD, on Blu-Ray, just amps up the film's quality, and further sparks Balian's interest. This is a gem of a film that the whole family has enjoyed!

The Blu-Ray Combo Pack is also packed with lots of bonus features, like this...
