Walt Disney Home Entertainment has announced the Blu-ray release of director James Bobin's Muppets Most Wanted, the well-received sequel to The Muppets (2011). The globe-trotting, star-studded musical comedy adventure stars Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey, Ty Burrell, Tom Hiddleston, Christoph Waltz, Debby Ryan, Ray Liotta and Danny Trejo. The Blu-ray/DVD/Digital HD combo pack release of Muppets Most Wanted features three versions of the film -- The Original Theatrical Cut, the Statler and Waldorf Cut, and The Unnecessarily Extended Cut -- and arrives on August 12th.
Official Synopsis: Muppets Most Wanted picks up immediately following the events of the The Muppets as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie Bear, the Great Gonzo, Animal and the entire Muppet gang head out on a world tour. But mayhem follows, as the Muppets find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine, the World's Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit the Frog. Soon Kermit is behind bars at the mercy of prison warden Nadya (Tina Fey), and the World's Number One Criminal, Constantine -- a dead ringer for Kermit -- has taken his place.
As Constantine and his dastardly sidekick Dominic (Ricky Gervais) plot the robbery of the century, they are pursued by Sam Eagle and Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell). Will Constantine get away with his nefarious scheme? Will Kermit escape in time to save the day?

I thought this was an average film and nowhere near as good as the 2011 reboot...however, Disney gets my respect for offering good value with this release...hopefully, we will get a Scott brand coupon to go along with this...and if they do, day 1 buy for sure since I own most of the Muppet blu-rays (except for the Christmas one, cant get a good deal on this one...)
