Love Caine/Muppets. Loath the edit cutting, Disney is losing vision.
on January 15, 2017
I marked five stars because I love the Muppets and this story ...BUT... this DVD version is really a huge back-handed face slap to the memory of Mr Henson by Disney. This movie was made by Mr. Henson's people to honour him and show the world the Muppets were not finished with his death. Belle's removed song and scenes during Christmas Past tore the heart out of the explanation of the changes of both younger and older Scrooges. The whole point of the movie !!! Keeping the dialogue scene in does nothing to redeem the edit. The end of movie scene and song at Bob Crachit's table loses all depth of meaning too as it is supposed to connect to Belle's missing song and scenes. The second explanation connecting to the point of the movie !!! It would be like removing Jack's death in Titanic making him just mysteriously disappear and thus remove all explanation for Rose's future life decisions. Explains the price-gouging theft of other sellers for first release copies. Disney is fast loosing their vision and talent in these modern days as I have seen edits like this done to other movies.
