While most of the rides and shows at Walt Disney World offer detailed, immersive experiences and magical memories, not all Disney attractions are created equal. This is especially true of the park attractions which haven’t really changed after a decade or so of operation.

Now in Disney’s defense, there are a lot of rides and shows to keep up with; and Disney often refurbishes and updates when they can, but there are a few that seem to slip through the cracks which I think Disney could really do a lot with.

5. Ellen’s Universe of Energy-This Epcot Future World attraction has been outdated and a bit of snooze for quite sometime. I think that when Disney guests begin to consider this ride as a prime napping spot when visiting the parks, it’s time for a change. Epcot’s Future World is in need of TLC and renewed creativity; and I say the Universe of Energy would be a great place to start. Maybe they could incorporate some of Walt’s original vision of Epcot into an attraction? What do you think?

4. Muppetvision 3D-Who doesn’t love the Muppets, right? Lately, the Muppets have been making a comeback and I think it’s the perfect time to give the dated Muppet 3D show at Hollywood Studios a renovation! There’s so much to work with when it comes to the Muppets, especially with a new Muppet film in the works. I know I would enjoy seeing something fresh and new in the Muppet’s corner of Hollywodo Studios.

3. Backlot Tour-Another Hollywood Studios that could benefit from an update would be the Backlot Tour. This attraction is one of the park’s original opening day rides and I think it has really been lacking as of late. For one, the opening show is still themed around the film Pearl Harbor, which hasn’t been considered new in nearly a decade. Secondly, the boneyard of old movie props is really not that entertaining and definitely below Disney standards; and Catastrophe Canyon, while still pretty cool, has been offering the same effects since 1989. There is so much that Disney could do with this ride and space!

2. Tomorrowland Indy Speedway-To be honest, this Indy inspired speedway, tucked between Tomorrowland and Fantasyland, has never made much sense to me. It really doesn’t belong in either land and could really benefit from a stronger Disney theme or storyline.  Ever since I heard about Cars Land at Disneyland’s California Adventure, I’ve been wanting our own version at WDW; and I think this could be the perfect spot.

1. The Great Movie Ride-Another Hollywood Studios original, The Great Movie Ride showcases audio-animatronic scenes from classic films ranging from the vintage Hollywood classics like Footlight Parade to sci-fi thriller Alien. Most people visiting the parks, especially kids and teens, haven’t seen most of these movies, except for Mary Poppins, Indiana Jones, and the Wizard of Oz, of course. While I know Hollywood Studios is all about the golden era of filmmaking, I don’t think inserting some relatable movies and new special effects would be much of an effort; and would really breathe some fresh air into this great Hollywood Studios space!

Which Disney rides and shows are on your refurbishment wish list?

The filmmaking team behind 2011’s celebrated film “The Muppets” reunites as Disney’s “The Muppets … Again!” kicked off production last week in London. The all-new global Muppets adventure welcomes Ricky Gervais, Ty Burrell and Tina Fey to the mayhem, along with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Walter and rest of the Muppets. The film is directed by James Bobin (“Flight of the Conchords,” “Da Ali G Show”), who was just nominated for a BAFTA for “The Muppets” (Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer), and produced by the Academy Award®-nominated team of David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman (“The Fighter,” “The Proposal”). With a screenplay by Bobin and Nicholas Stoller (“The Five-Year Engagement”), who is also executive producer with John Scotti, “The Muppets … Again!” will feature music from Academy Award®-winning songwriter Bret McKenzie (“Flight of the Conchords”), who won an Oscar® for best original song for “The Muppets” (“Man or Muppet”). The new film will hit the big screen March 21, 2014.

“It’s great to be back working with the Muppets,” said Bobin, “some of them even remember my name occasionally now. As for the movie, it’s a tip of the hat to the old-school crime capers of the ’60s, but featuring a frog, a pig, a bear and a dog—no panthers, even pink ones—along with the usual Muppet-y mix of mayhem, music and laughs.”

Disney’s “The Muppets …Again!” takes the entire Muppets gang on a global tour, selling out grand theaters in some of Europe’s most exciting destinations, including Berlin, Madrid and London. But mayhem follows the Muppets overseas, as they find themselves unwittingly entangled in an international crime caper headed by Constantine—the World’s Number One Criminal and a dead ringer for Kermit—and his dastardly sidekick Dominic, aka Number Two, portrayed by Ricky Gervais, creator of “Derek” and the Golden Globe®- and Emmy®-winning series “The Office” and “Extras.” The film stars Golden Globe-, Emmy- and SAG Award®-winning actress and writer Tina Fey (“30 Rock,” “Mean Girls,” “Date Night”) as Nadya, a feisty prison guard, and Emmy Award winner Ty Burrell (TV’s “Modern Family”) as Interpol agent Jean Pierre Napoleon.

Said Kermit the Frog, “This movie takes us places we’ve never been before. And trust me—this frog has never seen so much international flavor. I think audiences will eat it up—the entertainment, that is.”

Featuring a slew of surprising celebrity cameos, Disney’s “The Muppets … Again!” will shoot on location in London and in Hollywood, as well as in the famed Pinewood Studios in Iver Heath, Buckinghamshire, just outside of London.

Ricky Gervais

Here’s another reason to get excited about the new Muppets film. Last week we learned that ‘Modern Family’ star Ty Burrell was set to co-star in the film, playing an Interpol agent in the film, but we weren’t sure how big of a part he’d be playing. But we could possibly have our leading man now, because Ricky Gervais is in talks to star in the film. Not much is known about his character at this time, but he will be the lead human in the film, being our eyes and ears into the crazy world of the Muppets. He’ll be one of the three major human characters in the film, including Burrell as the “lazy Interpol Agent”, as we’ve learned. With two of the three major roles cast in the last two weeks, I’m sure we’ll be hearing who the third actor to take on the role will be fairly shortly.

I’m a huge fan of Gervais, he’s done some amazing work on television and film, and I’m a huge fan of the original version of ‘The Office’, which he starred in and created. He’s a huge fan of the Muppets, so having him come on board makes sense, especially following Jason Segal, who was also a self proclaimed Muppets enthusiast. The thing that makes this kind of funny is that Gervais originally shot a cameo for ‘The Muppets’, which was actually deleted from the film, and you can see on the blu-ray and DVD. I would have loved to have seen left in, just to see him interact more with the Muppets, but now I don’t have to worry about that because I can see him in a whole film acting along side them! There really isn’t a better leading man choice, at least in my eyes, to pick up where Segal left off, and I’m really glad to see Disney going to him. This movie just keeps shaping up to be better and better.  ‘The Muppets’ sequel is currently untitled and has no release date, but will begin filming next year.

Are you excited to see Ricky Gervais in ‘The Muppets’ sequel? Let me know in the comments below, only here at Chip and Company!

It looks like ‘The Muppets‘ sequel has finally found its star to takeover for Jason Segal in the new film. Segal isn’t set to reprise his role as Gary in the sequel to the 2011 film, but Walt Disney Studios has found another great comedic actor to take his place. Ty Burrell, who many will recognize as Phil from ABC’s hit comedy ‘Modern Family’, is set to star in the film as an Interpol Inspector in the film, but at the time we don’t know the characters name. In fact, very little is known about the film at this time, other than the fact that the film will follow the Muppets, including the new edition Walter, as the travel through Europe on some sort of caper. Burrell is taking over for Christoph Waltz, who had to unfortunately bow out of the role. The film is set to shoot in London next year, with a script by Nicholas Stoller, who wrote the first film with Segal, and returning director James Bobin.

I’m a huge fan of Ty Burrell, and think his work on ‘Modern Family’ is excellent, so I’m very excited to see him join the cast of the new film. I was very sad to see that Waltz had to drop out, but Burrell is more than capable of filling his shoes. ‘The Muppets’ was one of my favorite films of last year, so I definitely can’t wait for the sequel, and I really hope it lives up to the first one. ‘The Muppets’ sequel is currently untitled and doesn’t have a release date yet, but I’d expect winter 2013 or 2014.

Couple of developments coming out of Muppet world about the upcoming sequel that is still unnamed which is due to start filming in January. First, they have confirmed that they will be filming some around London. Beginning in January 2013 and April 2013 they will be doing location work in London for this film that is rumored to set place in Europe only.

Another little tidbit is that Bret McKenzie, who won an Oscar for his song “Man or Muppet” that was in the last Muppet film titled “The Muppets” is returning to write new songs for the film.

Regarding some of the actors, Jason Segel is saying he won’t be in this film, though there is talk of a cameo appearance, for the co-writer and executive producer of “The Muppets” film. On that note the sequel is set to introduce new Muppets and Oscar Winner, Christopher Waltz is playing the villain as an Interpol Agent in the new film.

The previous film “The Muppets” was received with huge accolades and so even though the sequel has some big shoes to fill it seems the plans are in place for another Muppets hit. Who wants to see the new Muppets movie? Who is your favorite Muppet? I like Beaker myself!

The Classic Christmas Tale. With A Muppets Twist. It’s Not Easy Being Scrooge Special Edition

On November 6, 2012, the Charles Dickens-inspired classic holiday story “The Muppet Christmas Carol,” will ring in its 20th anniversary with the Blu-ray™ debut of this family favorite.

And now, a word from Gonzo: Greetings, holiday movie fans and lovers of culture, I am Gonzo … or perhaps better known to fans of this classic motion picture as literary legend Charles Dickens. Are you ready to laugh, cry, sing, frolic, cavort and enjoy yourself beyond belief!? Well, you’re in luck, because this 20th Anniversary Edition of Disney’s “The Muppet Christmas Carol” is guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit that will stay with you forever—or at least until your Aunt Edna starts complaining that nobody is eating the fruitcake she brought … again!

This movie is the classic tale of Scrooge from a Christmas Carol but with a muppet twist. The movie is adorable it brings together my 2 favorite things Disney and The Muppets. You can’t go wrong with a combination like that. In this movie you will see the classic tale of Scrooge as told be Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat so you know there is some humor thrown in. I have to say my new favorite Muppet is Rizzo the Rat, probably because him and I share the same accent. This will definitely be a new Christmas tradition for my daughter and I.

The Special effects in this movie are amazing, considering this movie was done 20 years ago it is just incredible. When you see the ghost sequence you will see what I am talking about. The Muppets were always ahead of their time just like Disney, so they are a natural team.

Of course I have to talk about the bonus features. Disney Blu-ray has some of the best bonus features I have seen.

First up we have: Frogs, Pigs, and Humbug Unwrapping a New Holiday Classic :

We meet Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat again as they take us behind the scenes and interview Brian Henson the Director and son of the late great Jim Henson. Brian Henson said his favorite part of the movie is putting The Muppets with people and that is my favorite part also. They make it look so natural like The Muppets and the people have always lived around each other. He tells us that this is a very special movie because this is the first movie he directed since his fathers passing. I love the behind the scenes because you get to see all the hard work that goes into making the movie and you get to see the movie from a whole new perspective.

Next is The Blooper Reel:

Who doesn’t love a good blooper reel. Bloopers are even funnier when they are done by Muppets. The Muppets even make mistakes adorable.

Pepe profiles Presents- Gonzo a Portrait of the Artist as a Young Weirdo.

In this we learn about Gonzo. The Muppets all say something about Gonzo as they try to figure out what exactly it is he does.

Last but not Least is:

Christmas Around the World. This is educational because it tells us how different Christmas is around the world. Gonzo and Rizzo tell us how different the Christmas stories are from different parts of the world. I always knew Christmas is celebrated differently around the world but I never know exactly how it is different so my daughter and I both learned something from this bonus feature.

This movie definitely gets an A+

Walt Disney Pictures' 'The Muppets'

When Walt Disney Pictures released “The Muppets” last Thanksgiving, there were lots of reasons for fans like us to celebrate. After all, most of us have watched “The Muppet Show” for decades, have seen the movies and experienced the marvelous madness of Muppet*Vision 3-D at Disney’s Hollywood Studios (which is as much a loving tribute to the original TV show as the recent movie).

Now that “The Muppets” is available on Blu-ray and DVD, we’ve gained one more reason to cheer: last month, the Academy Award for Best Song was awarded to “Man or Muppet” from Walt Disney Pictures’ “The Muppets.” And if you haven’t been keeping a list, this was the very first Oscar awarded to a Muppet project, ever!

It was also the first Oscar for New Zealand-born lyricist/composer Bret McKenzie, who found it an amazing thrill to be part of a distinguished Muppet music legacy, which has earned numerous Grammy and Gold Record awards over the decades. “I wanted to make sure the songs sounded like Muppet songs,” he told us. “So I took on the job of producing them, to make them feel cohesive and to help the film itself hold together sonically.”

You can hear “Man or Muppet” and the other great songs in the new multi-disc “Wocka Wocka” Edition that combines a Blu-ray, DVD, movie download and soundtrack album download in one package.

The Muppets received a star on the Hollywood Walk (“Wocka Wocka”) of Fame today from the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce in celebration of the release of Disney’s “The Muppets” on Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD. The celebration was emceed by Chamber President and CEO Leron Gubler, with special guest speakers Rich Ross, Chairman, The Walt Disney Studios and Lisa Henson, CEO, The Jim Henson Company. Several Muppets were on hand to receive the star including Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie, Gonzo, Animal, Pepe, Sweetums, and Walter, the newest Muppet, who made his debut in Disney’s 2011 film. The Muppets’ star is the 2,466th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and is located in front of the historic El Capitan Theatre.

“Thanks to creative genius Jim Henson and these extraordinary puppeteers, the Muppets are truly worldwide icons and Hollywood stars,” said Ross. “They are a treasured part of the Disney family, and we’re thrilled to see them join so many other luminaries on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.”

What began with Kermit’s first TV appearance in 1955, has lead to a global phenomenon that is still going strong more than 50 years later! Since “The Muppet Show” began in 1976, audiences worldwide have embraced the Muppets. With the success of “The Muppet Show,” the Muppets branched out to the big screen, releasing their first feature film, “The Muppet Movie,” in 1979. The film starred a myriad of actors, including Bob Hope, Cloris Leachman, Steve Martin, Mel Brooks, Richard Pryor and Paul Williams. This impressive list of celebrity cast and cameos became the hallmark of all Muppet films, six of which followed, including “The Great Muppet Caper” (1981), “The Muppets Take Manhattan” (1984), “The Muppet Christmas Carol” (1992), “Muppet Treasure Island” (1996) and “Muppets from Space” (1999).

The latest film, “The Muppets” (2011) follows Walter, the world’s biggest Muppet fan, his brother Gary (Jason Segel) and Gary’s girlfriend, Mary (Amy Adams), from Smalltown, USA, as they head to Los Angeles for vacation and discover the nefarious plan of oilman Tex Richman (Chris Cooper) to raze Muppet Studios and drill for the oil recently discovered beneath the Muppets’ former stomping grounds.

All seven films have signature soundtracks that received countless awards, including an Academy Award® nomination for Best Song for “Rainbow Connection,” Best Original Score for “The Muppet Movie” and winner of the 2012 “Best Original Song” Academy Award® for “Man or Muppet,” from the “The Muppets” (2011).

In addition to feature films, Muppet mania continued long after “The Muppet Show” ended its run. Many television specials and documentaries featuring the classic Muppet characters have been produced. Muppet Magazine was published from 1983-1988 and “The Muppets” comic strip was syndicated in U.S. newspapers from the early to mid 1980s. Museum exhibits (“The Art of The Muppets,” “The World of Jim Henson: Muppets, Monsters & Magic,” “The Vision of Jim Henson” and others) featuring Muppet characters toured domestically and internationally from 1980-2001.

Multiple record albums for “The Muppet Show,” “Muppet Babies” and all of the Muppet movies have been released worldwide. Hundreds of Muppet books have also been published around the world since 1976.

Throughout the years the Muppets have also produced numerous public service announcements and have acted as spokespeople for many causes both domestically and internationally, ranging from The National Wildlife Federation, UNICEF and the American Film Institute, to the University of Maryland, the American Library Association and the Better World Society. Kermit regularly appears as a giant balloon in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade in New York City.

One of the year’s best-loved family comedies and among the best reviewed films of 2011, Disney’s “The Muppets,” starring Jason Segel, Academy Award®-nominee Amy Adams, and favorite celebrity couple Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy — debuts March 20 on Blu- rayTM Combo Pack, DVD, Digital Download and On-Demand formats. A must-own movie the entire family can enjoy, Disney’s “The Muppets” in-home release includes the DVD and digital soundtrack packaged together and also offered as the ultimate Muppets experience, a ‘Wocka­Wocka Value Pack,’ which contains the movie on Blu-ray high definition, DVD and Digital Copy (three discs), plus a download card which allows fans to own all the songs including Bret McKenzie’s Oscar®-winning “Man or Muppet,” from the film’s hugely popular soundtrack from Walt Disney Records.

Recently Disney sent me The Muppets 3-Disc ‘Wocka- Wocka  Value Pack’  (1-Disc Blu-ray + 1-Disc  DVD +  Digital Copy + Soundtrack Digital Download Card) for review. I fell in love with the Muppets when I was little from the Muppet Show to their movies both on-screen and made for TV. I would even be so bold to say I love the Muppets more than some Disney Characters. I hate that I didn’t get a chance to see this movie in theaters but better late than never.

After watching the trailers and commercials the Muppet Menu comes up and I had to laugh at just the intro screen. Which for me is a good sign I am going to love this movie! Watch the whole thing and keep an eye on Animal 😉

From opening Intro to closing song the Muppet Movie really delivers! Jason Segel did an excellent job with this movie. So much so that Disney is already working on another! All of the songs were phenomenal and the story line was flawless. It was like totally rad to see the original cast back again. While some of the new members were ok I fell in love with 80’s Robot! I would have liked to seen more of him and my favorite Muppet – Pepe the King Prawn.

With catchy tunes, dance numbers, celebrities, goofy jokes, and even rips on themselves this movie has not left my bluray/dvd players yet! I can honestly say I have seen this movie over 20 times in about a week and easily on my Top 10 Movie list. I can hear the “Everything is Great” song right now!

I think the best value is the Wocka Wocka Value Pack. It gave us one copy for the Bluray Player, one for in the car, and one we can bring in our laptop. I already have the Muppet Soundtrack so I haven’t used the redeem code they give you in the box.

Now onto the Bonus Content…

First thing I am going to mention is as you’re watching the film just pause it. I don’t want to say anything more but I think you will like it! You also get an extended version of Tex Richmans’s song, and the Muppets Blooper Reel.

What I didn’t like is they should have included videos of all the songs. I would have loved to go back and watched the Man or Muppet or the song I posted above. Maniacal laugh..

I would have to give Muppet Movie a 11/10 as it is that good. If like me grew up on the Muppets or want to expose little ones to a piece of your childhood you will want to run out and get this movie on March 20th.

I want to hear what you think of the Muppet Movie in the comment box below.

The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce will honor the legendary Muppets with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on March 20, 2012 at The El Capitan Theatre, beginning at 11:30a.m.

The ceremony coincides with Disney’s “The Muppets” movie leapfroging into homes on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital Download and On-Demand, becoming available in the same day.

Yesterday we ran a story that Jason Segel wouldn’t be returning to write the sequel to ‘The Muppets’. At the time, it was unclear if that meant Segel would be coming back to star in the film or not. Unfortunately, it looks like the man who brought the Muppets back to the big screen won’t be returning in any capacity. Hit the jump for more.

Collider was the first to break the news. In an interview with Segel for his new film ‘Jeff Who Lives at Home’, he was asked about the rumors that he wouldn’t be returning to write the sequel. Segel confirmed he wouldn’t be writing the sequel, and then went on to confirm he wouldn’t be starring in it either.

“It’s true but it’s totally amicable. My goal was to bring The Muppets back and I did that leaving them in very good hands, my writing partner and James Bobin the director. I did what I set out to do, and now I wanna pursue more human-related projects (laughs). 

Thankfully though, Segel hasn’t closed the door to returning in the future. 

“All I wanted to do was to set the stage for them to do whatever they wanted. I’m sure I’ll return in some capacity here and there, but that was half a decade of my life. Five years of hard work. I’m ready for a little puppet break.””

So it looks like those that were hoping we’d see Walter’s older brother Gary come back in the sequel will be sadly disappointed. I thought Segel brought a lot of humor and heart to the movie, and I’m definitely sad to see he won’t be returning. But I’m very thankful he brought the characters back to the big screen, and I understand him possibly wanting the break. I do hope we see Segel return as Gary eventually, but for now it looks like it’ll be Kermit, Walter, Miss Piggy, and all the rest on their own new adventure.

‘The Muppets’ sequel is currently being developed by director James Bobin and co-writer Nicholas Stoller. There is no release date for the next film at this time.
