Description

'Tis the season for love, laughter, and one of the most cherished stories of all time! Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and all the hilarious Muppets in this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens' classic tale. Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor, 2000, The Cider House Rules; 1987, Hannah And Her Sisters) gives a performance that's anything but "bah, humbug!" as greedy, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge. One fateful Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Together with kind, humble Bob Cratchit (Kermit the Frog) and his family, the Spirits open Scrooge's eyes -- and his heart -- to the true meaning of Christmas. Filled with original music and dazzling special effects, this restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of The Muppet Christmas Carol will become a holiday tradition your family will treasure all the days of the year.

  • Wonderful! But...

    This has always been one of my favorite versions of A Christmas Carol. Humor for kids and adults with fun songs. However, I am disappointed by the digital release of the film due to it cutting an entire scene from Christmas Past. Young Belle sings a goodbye explaining why they didn’t marry. While the song does appear in the ending credits, it’s sad that the context is lost due to the scene cuts.
  • Great Christmas movie.

    This is by far the most enjoyable adaptation I have ever seen.

    This has been a holiday favorite for years but in this version Belle’s song, “The Love Has Gone,” is missing.
  • When Love Is Gone added via iTunes Extras!

    I'm so happy "When Love Is Gone" has been added as an extra. I know it cannot be re-inserted into the movie without Disney doing a re-edit of the theatrical print, but this was all I was looking for as a compromise. Yay!!

    This movie is one of our families favorite to watch at Christmas. I was very disappointed that this purchase didn't include both versions of the movie. The version with the extended scenes is the best which this unfortunately didn't include. I would love to get a refund but apparently that isn't possible. The movie with extended scenes is a 5 star, this version is 3 stars in my opinion.

    A cute, fun, family-friendly movie that captures the fun spirit of Christmas while teaching about the TRUE meaning of Christmas! The Muppets did a great job interpreting the classic Charles Dickens story! Recommended for Christmas!
