Overview
Ahoy, matey! Get ready for hilarity on the high seas with Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all the Muppets in this exciting action-adventure, inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic pirate tale.

When young Jim Hawkins inherits a long-lost treasure map, he hires the great ship Hispaniola to seek his fortune. With the good Captain Smollett (Kermit the Frog) at the helm – and greedy Long John Silver (Tim Curry) at the heart of a dastardly plot – they set sail for adventure only to discover danger at every turn!

Featuring a rollicking score by Academy Award® winner Hans Zimmer, this fully restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of Muppet Treasure Island is a fun-packed, music-filled swashbuckler the entire family will enjoy over and over.
