I grew up watching The Wiz and I even had all of my kids watch it even though they weren't that into it because it seems outdated to them and you know kids have no appreciation for classics. But we received the DVD for Christmas one year as it was given to my eldest daughter when she was about 4 and I was ecstatic to receive it due to the nostalgia from my own childhood.  Needless to say that I cannot wait for the revised version and eagerly await the Broadway release in 2016. All of my kids will be in attendance as well as my mother. I don't know how they'll be able to recreate the scenes from the World Trade Center but I'm sure Hollywood will work their magic. When I was a kid, just knowing that the movie was suppose to be about Dorthy in the city was amazing and realistic to me. The snow, the Twin Towers, the subway, the taxi cabs with their legendary yellow colors and signs were truly symbolic to me because it was all of images that I identified with and I loved it. I also love that hometown girls Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige will be involved in the new version being that it's roots are in the city with Blige playing Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West, while Latifah to play the infamous Wizard. There's even talks of BeyoncĂ© potentially joining to play Glinda the good witch. The television version is planned to air on NBC December 3.
