The Muppet Christmas Carol is the Christmas film that the UK public would most like to see adapted for the stage, according to a poll from London theatre breaks website Show-and-Stay.co.uk
The wacky retelling of Dickens’ classic tale starring Jim Henson’s Muppet characters came top of the list with 25% of the votes.
Gothic festive romp Nightmare Before Christmas came in a close second with 21% of the vote and heart-warming celeb parade, Love Actually came in third with 20%.
Bringing up the rear were action classic Die Hard with 9% and Bill Murray’s Scrooged with a disappointing 2% of the vote.
This well-deserved victory for the Muppets comes shortly after the news that their version of Bohemian Rhapsodyâ€”which has taken YouTube by stormâ€”is to be release as a single in time to compete for the coveted UK Christmas number one spot.
