The divine Miss Piggy clues us in on "'The Muppets' Wizard Of Oz."
On the face of it, it seems impossible to lend more sparkle to the magical Land of Oz. But that's before you add the fabulous Miss Piggy into the mix! She and the rest of the Muppets gang star in a shiny new version of the classic story alongside Ashanti who plays Dorothy, Queen Latifah who plays Auntie Em, David Alan Grier who plays Uncle Henry, Jeffrey Tambor as the Wizard, and Quentin Tarantino -- as himself. Kermit the Frog takes the role of the Scarecrow and Miss Piggy plays all four witches in Oz. "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" premiered at the Tribeca Family Festival in April, with Robert De Niro and Kermit the Frog opening the film to a sold-out house. "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" will air Friday, May 20, 2005 at 8 p.m./7 Central, on "The Wonderful World of Disney," on ABC.
