Everyone's favorite puppet comedians re-interpret a family classic in THE MUPPETS WIZARD OF OZ. Pop star Ashanti stars as Dorothy, who lives in Kansas with her Auntie Em (Queen Latifah) while dreaming of success as a singer in Hollywood. Her wishes just might come true when a tornado whisks her away to the magical land of Oz, where she hears about a great wizard who can grant your greatest desires. Along with an unusual gang of misfits--the Scarecrow (Kermit the Frog), the Tin Thing (Gonzo), and the Cowardly Lion (Fozzie Bear)--she sets off to find the Wizard. But before she gets there, she'll have to contend with the jealous and overbearing Wicked Witch of the West (Miss Piggy). THE MUPPETS WIZARD OF OZ takes a classic tale and emphasizes the fun and comedic elements, as the Muppets always do.
