The comedy movie stars Ricky Gervais (The Ricky Gervais Show), Ty Burrell (TV’s Modern Family) and Tina Fey (Admission), along with a line of other celebrities, like any good Muppet movie.

The actors list is huge: Sean Combs (Get Him to the Greek), Rob Corddry (Hot Tub Time Machine), Zach Galifianakis (It’s Kind of a Funny Story), Salma Hayek (Savages), Mackenzie Crook (TV’s The Office), Frank Langella (Robot & Frank), Ray Liotta (Something Wild), James McAvoy (X-Men: First Class), Chloe Grace Moretz (Hugo), Saoirse Ronan (Hanna), Danny Trejo (Spy Kids 4: All the Time in the World), Stanley Tucci (Margin Call), Christoph Waltz (Carnage), Miranda Richardson (Made in Dagenham) and Downton Abbey‘s Hugh Bonneville.

And then there are the singers: Tony Bennett, Celine Dion, Lady Gaga and Josh Groban.

It’s like all of Hollywood’s in this film.

Muppets Most Wanted Blu-ray boxMuppets Most Wanted wowed critics more than moviegoers, earning 79% approval vs 65%, according to Rotten Tomatoes. But since the PG-rated family movie grossed $50 million in theaters, less than the $88.6 million The Muppets made in 2011, many moviegoers have not seen it yet.

The Blu-ray/DVD Combo pack comes with an “Unnecessarily Extended Edition with 12 minutes more footage than the theatrical version.

The special features also include:

  • “The Statler and Waldorf Cut”
  • “The Longest Longest Blooper Reel in Muppets History”
  • “Rizzo’s Biggest Fan”
  • the Bret McKenzie music video “I’ll Get You What You Want”
  • and Disney Movies Anywhere
    • “Frog-E-Oke: I’m Number One”
    • and more.
