Yesterday, March 20, 2012, the world-renowed 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. The celebration was emceed by Chamber President and CEO Leron Gubler, with special guest speakers Rich Ross, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios and Lisa Henson, CEO, The Jim Henson Company. Several Muppets were on hand to receive the star including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, Pepe, Sweetums, and Walter, the newest Muppet, who made his debut in Disney’s 2011 film. The Muppets’ star is the 2,466th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is located in front of the historic El Capitan Theatre.
As I stated above, Disney’s “The Muppets” came out on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD yesterday also. I picked my copy of the Wocka, Wocka Value Pack last night at Target on sale for $24.99 and I had my $5.00 off Disney Movie Rewards coupon so that was a great deal on the Blu-ray, DVD, Digital copy, and a downloadable soundtrack! We didn’t get to see the movie in the theater, so last night was our first viewing. In my opinion, this was exactly what a Muppet come-back movie should be. I laughed and I cried. I thoroughly enjoyed the movie and I can’t wait to watch all of the cool bonus features. If you haven’t seen it yet, go get it! You won’t regret enjoying some time with the lovable Muppets and their timeless humor.
