Just hours ago we reported that the 2008 holiday special "A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa" would be coming to DVD this fall. The collectable DVD release will hit stores on September 29, 2009. Since our initial report I've received even more details on this exciting release from the fine folks at Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment.
Aside from the complete hour-long television special, the DVD will also include over 15-minutes of original bonus material! The bonus features include an all new documentary-style featurette entitled "Searching for Santa Claus," plus a collection of never-before-seen deleted scenes from the special. The single-disc DVD release will come in an eye-catching collectable o-sleeve package and will carry the suggested retail price of $26.99.
"A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa" features the Muppet gang on a quest to get three misplaced letters to Santa Claus before Christmas Eve. The musical special features appearances by Nathan Lane, Whoopi Goldberg, Richard Griffiths, Jane Krakowski, Petra Nemcova, Uma Thurman, Tony Sirico, Steve Schirripa, Michael Bloomberg, Madison Pettis and Paul Williams. The special, directed by Kirk Thatcher, was written by Hugh Fink, Scott Ganz, Andrew Samson, and Paul Williams.
I will keep you updated with any more information on this exciting holiday release as information becomes available.
