Now that the festive season is officially underway, it’s time to revisit an ultimate holiday classic: The Muppet Christmas Carol.
A muppety take on the Charles Dickens novel, the Christmas film sees Kermit, Miss Piggy and the gang dress up as the Victorian characters and tell the festive story for our entertainment.
Here’s all you need to know about how to stream The Muppet Christmas Carol this year.
