When Love Is Gone - The Muppet Christmas Carol - HD Widescreen

Last year, Disney+ added “When Love is Gone” as a special feature on the extras page—appreciated, but inconvenient for those who wanted to watch the scene in the context of the movie. In order to do that, you had to pause mid-film, return to the main page, click through to the special features, then watch the clip before making your way back to the movie itself.


Thankfully, this year you can access the extended cut with the song—written by the legendary songwriter Paul Williams (“Rainbow Connection,” The Phantom of the Paradise)—without interruption in the extras tab of the movie. It’s still a little weird, but not uncommon; Little Shop of Horrors has a similar deal on HBO Max, where you also have to go to the features tab to access it’s director’s cut. Guess it’s just Henson movies, eh?

Watch The Muppet Christmas Carol in its entirety on Disney+ starting December 9.
