Walt Disney Home Entertainment is bringing The Great Muppet Caper (1981) and Muppet Treasure Island (1996) to Blu-ray this holiday season via a 2-Movie BD/DVD Collection. Both Muppets feature films are making their Blu-ray debuts, and arrive on December 10th.
Official Synopsis: A treasure trove of hearty laughs is yours when two of the funniest, most action-packed Muppet movies of all time make their Disney Blu-ray debut in this heartwarming 2-Movie Collection. From the special star-studded lunacy in Muppet Treasure Island to the jewel-heist hilarity of The Great Muppet Caper, these two classic comedy-adventures are packed with music, mirth, mayhem and, of course, Kermit, Miss Piggy, Animal, Fozzie, Gonzo and all your Muppet favorites. Loaded with unforgettable music and sparkling special effects, this restored and remastered collection is a 2-movie treasure you won't want to miss.
Tech specs and special features have yet to be detailed.
I would rather have Caper released by itself, but it is what it is...
Caper hold a special place in my heart, as its one of the first films I saw in a theater as a child, we also still have a few of the Caper glasses they sold at McD's back when the film was released.
I'm so nervous about Disney scrubbing these, especially after this week's release of Sword in the Stone. Please, can we get a respectable transfer for the Muppet movies! We'll know as soon as Tuesday when The Muppet Movie comes out. Surprised we haven't seen a review for that here yet. Can't wait/nervous!
Really pleased that Muppet Treasure Island is getting released One of my favourite Muppet films and it's even better when packed with Great Muppet Caper. Shame we haven't had any released in the UK yet so just have to keep importing.
I hope the bluray for the Muppet Treasure Island comes with all the features from the DVD releases, mainly the commentary and featurettes. The Great Muppet Caper unfortunately had only a couple of Muppetism featurettes and bios on the 2001 & 2005 DVD's. All I can say is 2 of my favorites (All the films are my favorites though) are coming in high definition so i'm stoked!
Are you kidding me Disney?!?! I'm fine with the 2 pack collections for the animated features and their less attractive sequels- but these Muppet movies deserve their own releases. Caper is by far my favorite Muppet film and one of my all time favorite movies period. It deserved its own special release as it's Jim Henson's first and only Muppet film he directed. I'll probably buy this, but I'm having faith they get it right and release them both separately.
