A classic Disney fairytale collides with modern-day New York City in a story about a fairytale princess who is sent to our world by an evil queen. Soon after her arrival, Princess Giselle begins to change her views on life and love after meeting a handsome lawyer. Can a storybook view of romance survive in the real world?

This was the first major Muppet project after the death of creator Jim Henson. Henson had performed Kermit the Frog and the role was now being handed down to Steve Whitmire. According to Whitmire he was incredibly nervous about taking over such an iconic character. The night before he had to go record Kermit's songs for the movie, he had a dream where he met Henson in a hotel lobby and told him how unsure he was. In the dream, Henson reassured Whitmire that the feeling would pass. After waking up, Whitmire was confident and able to do the part. See more »

If he became a flavor you can bet he would be sour. Yuck!

The opening credits feature the names of the Muppet characters as the Christmas Carol characters they portray. (Kermit The Frog as Bob Cratchet, etc). The ending credits list the voice actors and puppeteers themselves. See more »
A truly superb Christmas treat for old and young alike. This is the re-telling of the classic Dickens novel 'A Christmas Carol'. Michael Caine is cast superbly as Scrooge but the muppet characters are absolutely brilliant, particularly Gonzo and Rizzo.
The sets are excellent and the music stirring (so much so I bought the CD soundtrack and listen to it at the festive season whilst driving).
I never fail to watch this movie at least once a year and if you haven't seen it you should, it really does make you feel good.
