The Wiz (1978)
The Wiz: Outstanding Remake
Everyone knew of the little girl named Dorothy who was washed away from her home after getting twisted in a twister. Everyone knew that she wanted to come home; but what everyone didn't know was that Dorothy could also be played as a young adult who was a school teacher.
The Wiz was an excellent remake of the fairy tale play The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the movie the Wizard of Oz. It was a fantasy, adventure, and musical directed by Sidney Lumet in 1978. This version of the play added its own style to the storyline by making it more up to date by making New York City the place of Emerald City. The story was already great before they made The Wiz. The main idea was a girl finds friends that all feel like they need something to make them better when in fact they already have it. To top it all off who they were trying to get what they wanted from didn't even have it in him.
The Wiz is a movie every child should watch. It tells a great story and it is a movie that everyone in the family can watch together. Watching this movie, you will enjoy the voices of so many talented stars such as Michael Jackson and Diana Ross. The Wiz will have you laughing, crying, and dancing all at the same time. You will never forget the day when you watch this because it will have you thinking and feeling inspired. What you think you don't have, someone doesn't have it at all. That is the theme of the story. Everyone has flaws.
Some people believe that this was a waste of time and money to make this movie. I disagree. As time goes on things change and I believe it was time for the Wizard of Oz to be remade and "juiced" up a little. I would like to see more and more remade.
