The Muppets Blu-Ray and DVD is coming out on March 20th from Walt Disney. I’ve heard lots of good things about the movie but didn’t get around to seeing it yet. Quite frankly, I was getting sick of seeing the trailer for it every movie I saw in the theater. Plus, it’s always nice to see a Muppet or children movie at home, where there is no crying or talkative kids so looking forward to seeing this one. Press release is below:
