We received a copy of Muppets Most Wanted on Blu-ray Combo Pack to watch and review. Here is what we thought of the film. Opinions are 100% our own.
The kids, or rather, Eva, didn’t want to watch The Muppets Most Wanted. She told us that she does not like The Muppets. My wife was a bit crushed at hearing that because she LOVES The Muppets. So, we watched Muppets Most Wanted without the kids. It was a great decision since we could watch everything and not miss a joke because of the kids yelling or asking questions. There were plenty of great jokes in this movie, too. I personally liked it more than the previous Muppets Movie. While I liked that one I liked Muppets Most Wanted much more.

Center stage is taken by Kermit the Frog and his doppelganger Constantine the World’s Most Dangerous Frog. As for the human characters the two main ones in this movie were Ricky Gervais, Tina Fey and Ty Burell. In this whirlwind caper the Muppets get a manager named Dominic Badguy and he sets up a number of venues for the Muppets to play all over the world. He’s a bit shady as you will find out. Tina Fey is Nadya a guard in The Gulag where Kermit ends up after he’s bamboozled by Constantine. And rounding out the human cast is Ty Burell from Modern family as Jean Pierre Napoleon an inspector on the trail of a number of robberies and there are some great moments between he and Sam the Eagle.

I love the little Muppets shorts that have been on YouTube. Now there is a new series of shorts that are going to appear on Disney Movies Anywhere. It is all about the Walt Disney Studios Lot and will involve Pepe the King Prawn and Walter. I watched the trailer and was excited that it showed a bunch of places at the Walt Disney Studios that I saw during my visit last month.

In celebration of the home entertainment release for Muppets Most Wanted, Disney Movie Anywhere (DMA) is debuting a six-part original series called “Disney Drive-On with The Muppets” for a limited time beginning August 1, 2014. With two new episodes releasing each Friday, “Disney Drive-On with The Muppets” brings you everything you’ve come to love and expect from The Muppets, including special celebrity cameos!
After being left in charge of the Muppets’ office by Kermit, Pepe the King Prawn takes on the responsibility of “mentoring” Walter on the business of Hollywood. Still considered the “new guy” with the Muppets, Walter is given low-level jobs working alongside his fellow Muppets at their office in the famed Walt Disney Studios in Burbank. He quickly learns there is a lot more to making movies than he thought! Developing projects may not always be so glamorous, but Walter is still excited to tackle new challenges, and discovers life on the Disney Lot is certainly a fun and funny adventure.
