Muppets' Oz DVD to include 20 minutes of extended scenes

By Greg James
June 9, 2005

Pre-order The Muppets' Wizard of Oz DVD with twenty-minutes of extended scenes. Also on the same day, The Muppet Show Season 1 DVD is officially released.

"The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" will make its way to DVD later this summer. The delightful made-for-TV-movie will be released on DVD, with exclusive bonus features, on August 9, 2005. The disc will feature an extended cut of the tele-film plus several fun bonus features.

The bonus features for the Oz DVD have been revealed, with the disc containing a blooper reel called "Oz Oops!", a behind the scenes featurette called "Pepe's Exclusive Making-of", an extended interview of Quentin Tarantino by Pepe, and "much more".

The DVD will retail for $24.99 or less. Be sure to pick up this DVD and relive the Muppet's take on Oz commercial free and full of extras. The film is being released as an extended version with over 20 minutes of footage not seen in the original TV broadcast (due to network time restraints).

Aside from over 20 minutes of new scenes, the DVD will also feature a brand new behind-the-scenes feature called “Pepe’s Exclusive 'Making Of' Bonus Featurette”. Fans will also be able to see tons of outtakes and bloopers in "Oz Oops!” And fans will get to know Quentin Tarantino with “Pepe’s extended interview of Quentin Tarantino” also included on the disc.

The movie stars the Muppets with Kermit as the Scarecrow, Gonzo as the Tin Thing, Fozzie as the Lion, Pepe the King Prawn as Toto and Miss Piggy as all four witches. It’s a madcap adventure based on the classic family tale The Wizard of Oz by L. Frank Baum.

Join the Muppets and Ashanti, Jeffrey Tambor, Queen Latifah, and David Alan Grier for laughs and family fun. The DVD will arrive in stores on August 9, 2005 (the same day as "The Muppet Show Season 1" DVD box set).

Pepe’s Exclusive “Making Of” Bonus Featurette
