The Muppet's are back and better than ever in their new self titled movie from Disney, The Muppets!
As children, both my husband and myself were huge fans of this furry lovable group of friends! So, we were more than a little thrilled when we had the opportunity to introduce our kiddo's to The Muppets when it released in theaters this past Fall.
We all enjoyed it so much, we went back to see it a second time while it was still in theaters! Since then the kids have regularly requested that we bring it home on Blu-ray and were so happy when the waiting was finally over! The Muppets recently released to "Wocka Wocka Value Pack" which includes The Muppets on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Copy + Soundtrack.
Mary (Amy Adams) stars as Gary's (Jason Segel) girlfriend. While Gary is especially close with his Muppet brother "Walter" (pictured above left) he's excited to get away on an anniversary trip to Hollywood with Mary.
They've planned this special trip to celebrate their Anniversary and have an exciting week of site-seeing planned (sans family). At the last minute, Gary invites Walter to come along, thus changing the entire theme of the vacation.
Walter is soon disappointed. After he takes a lack-luster Studio tour, Walter learns that The Muppets are no longer working together, nor are they friends. He immediately sets out on a quest to bring The Muppets back together and he brings Gary and Mary along for the ride. Walter must act fast though or The Muppets will lose their theater and their names to corporate greed and a group of Muppet wannabes, "The Moopets", forever. Amy Adams and Jason Segal are simply delightful in this film. The fun comedic storyline, bursts of song and dance and the lovable cast of The Muppets makes this one MUST SEE FAMILY FILM!
The Muppets have achieved official "Star" status!
On March 20, 2012 the world-renowned Muppets received a star on the Hollywood Walk ("Wocka Wocka") of Fame, from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce in celebration of the release of Disney's "The Muppets" on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD.

On vacation in Los Angeles, Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), from Smalltown, USA, discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze Muppet Studios and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds. To stage a telethon and raise the $10 million needed to save the studio, Walter, Mary and Gary help Kermit reunite the Muppets, who have allgone their separate ways: Fozzie now performs with a Reno casino tribute band called the Moopets, Miss Piggy is a plus-size fashion editor at Vogue Paris, Animal is in a Santa Barbara clinic for anger management, and Gonzo is a high-powered plumbing magnate.
