The Muppet Christmas Carol Returns to UK Cinemas

Posted August 17, 2012 04:01 PM by Webmaster

Park Circus20 years after its original release, The Muppet Christmas Carol will return to the big screen on brand new digital prints, courtesy of British distributors Park Circus, introducing the new generation of Muppet fans to one of the greatest Christmas tales ever told, in the way only Kermit and friends can tell it.

Brian Henson directs his late father's creations in the Charles Dickens classic. Michael Caine, in a truly great performance, plays the old miser Scrooge with Kermit as his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit's wife, and a host of Muppets (including the Great Gonzo as an unlikely Charles Dickens) taking other primary roles in this bright, playful adaptation of the sombre tale. Or at least it starts brightly enough--the anarchic humor soon settles into mirthful memories and a sense of melancholy as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey of his lonely, wasted life.

The Muppet Christmas Carol returns to UK cinemas from 23 November 2012.

Note: In the U.S., The Muppet Christmas Carol will be available to purchase on Blu-ray on November 6th, courtesy of Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.

Hope I'm wrong but seems mighty close to Christmas for a cinematic release and then for it to be followed by a blu ray release.

Is it too much to hope for a U.S. cinema release? This is one of my favorite movies ever, to the point where I'd almost consider a trip across the pond to see it in a theater if it comes to that.

Import for sure! My favourite Muppet movie, and my favourite Christmas movie.
Wonder if it'll have the "love we found" song left in.

I think we are slowly going to begin to see a return of regular theatrical re releases, its starting more so overseas right now, but I think within the next few years Theatrical Re releases of films will start becoming the norm again. And I for one would love that.

This is good news for UK cinema goers, but like others have said, I wish they would give it a run in North American theaters. The Muppet Christmas Carol ranks along side the (much more serious) version with George C. Scott as my favorite interpretations of the story. Oh well, at least there will be the blu-ray to keep me warm during the Xmas holiday blues.

I am Sooooooooooo Getting the film on BD. And it has the two cuts of the Film:3 Hoping the Extended cut is now Widescreen. It was really hard to watch the EX Cut in full Screen on the DVD.
