The Muppets Blu-ray/DVD extras announced

Even though the movie hasn't been released in Europe yet, the detail on the home versions of the new Muppet movie have been released today. American Muppet fans will be able to get their hands on The Muppets on DVD/Bluray March 20 in three seperate editions; a DVD only set, a DVD/Bluray set which  includes the movie on both DVD and Blu-ray and a "Wocka Wocka' value pack which also includes a Digital Copy and a copy of the soundtrack. The extras included are:

  • The Longest Blooper Reel Ever Made (In Muppet History––We Think) - A laugh out loud look at the actors'funny gaffs and gags from behind the scenes of making Disney's "The Muppets."
  • Disney Intermission - Groundbreaking Blu-ray feature. Pausing a movie will never be this much fun, as the Muppets take over the screen every time you stop the disc! (Blu-ray and  Value Pack Only)
  • Scratching The Surface: A Hasty Examination of the Making of Disney's "The Muppets." Hosted by unit production manager monster J.G., the cast and crew take a behind the scenes look at making Muppet and movie history. (Blu-ray and Value Pack Only)
  • Explaining Evil: The Full Tex Richman Song. Rapping his way through the story of his miserable life, Tex tells audiences why he turned out to be such a rotten guy. (Blu-ray and  Value Pack Only)
  • A Little Screen Test on the way to the Read Through. This hilarious footage follows the Muppet gang as they go to their first table reading of the script. (Blu-ray and  Value Pack Only)
  • Eight Deleted Scenes (Blu-ray and  Value Pack Only)
  • Audio Commentary with Jason Segel, James Bobin and Nicholas Stoller (Blu-ray and  Value Pack Only)
  • Hidden Easter Eggs (Blu-ray and  Value Pack Only)
  • Theatrical spoof trailers (Value Pack Only)
  • The Complete Soundtrack (Value Pack Only)

If you've already got the soundtrack I think you're better off with the Bluray/DVD edition unless you really REALLY like the spoof trailers. It is too bad we don't get an extended cut as many Muppet fans had hoped for but there are some cool extra's included. The 'pause feature' sounds interesting and I'm curious as to what the deleted scenes are. (And if there will be an option to view the movie with them included) The DVD-only version looks pretty slim with only a Blooper Reel on it you might think about upgrading to Bluray since most studios nowadays give DVD's the slim treatment.
