As we previously reported, Muppet Treasure Island and The Great Muppet Caper will be released on Blu-ray on December 10th. We still haven’t seen an official confirmation that this will be a two-disc set (which would be ideal) rather a single disc with both movies crammed in, but now we have some new info about the special features. As reported by Stitch Kingdom, they include:
- The Tale of the Story Beyond the Tail, a making-of look at Muppet Treasure Island carried over from the 2002 DVD release
- Muppet Treasure Island Audio Commentary, also from the DVD
- A “Frog-E-Oke” sing-along (presumably similar to the ones on the Muppet Movie Blu-ray)
- Something they’re referring to as “a rediscovered music video of ‘Let the Good Shine Out.’” I’m guessing this is a clip from the Muppet Treasure Island Sing-Along video from back in the day. (But why don’t they just include the whole special?)
- A preview of Muppets Most Wanted
So not a bad list, overall. I can’t help but wish there were more Great Muppet Caper-specific extras (Charles Grodin should do a commentary!), but it’ll be great just to have two more Muppet classics on Blu-ray.
