Do you love the Muppets? This special holiday screening is a once in a lifetime opportunity!
Muppet Christmas Carol 30th Anniversary
This year marks the 30th Anniversary of a beloved holiday film. The Muppet Christmas Carol is turning 30 years old!
Disney celebrated the anniversary at this year’s D23 with a huge announcement. A song that was cut from the original release has been added back to the film for the first time as part of the celebration.
Audiences can now enjoy When Love is Gone. The song did not make the original cut after it did not screen well with a test audience of children.
You can read Marisol’s piece about experiencing the Muppet Christmas Carol 30th Anniversary panel live at D23 this year. Head over here to see it.
