Hey Everyone!! One Tuf Cookie here, with today’s issue of Blog Xpressions and I’m UBER EXCITED!! Are you guys in the holiday spirit yet? If not, I’ve got just the thing! What perfect perfect timing- smack dab in the middle of the holiday season to bring back ‘The Wiz’! I don’t know anyone more excited than me!! I’ve been anticipating it for weeks and it’s finally here!!
Way way back when I was a bite sized Cookie, [joke drums ] The Wiz was a huge deal because it starred A-List entertainers like Michael Jackson and Diana Ross and it featured bright colors, live music and huge hype everywhere. It was a funky new way of them retelling the childhood story “The Wizard of Oz”. It’s a story about a girl that had a dream where she met some amazing friends and they all helped each other find the things they thought they needed to find to make themselves happy. So many of our childhood fables get lost in time and I just think it’s awesome that NBC is bringing the story back to life again with new modern icons like Ne-yo, Queen Latifah, David Allan Grier, Common and the incomparable Mary J. Blige- just to name a few. This season is huge on wild imagination and I personally think the timing couldn’t have been better!
From the previews and billboards, and the makeup and costumes being ABSOLUTELY AMAZING- I’m hugely hopeful that it lives up to the hype. Be sure to tune in Thursday, December 3rd to NBC at 8/7C and we’ll see how the Cookie crumbles!
Here’s an idea: Relive the good old days and visit Amazon.com through our site and grab the classic version so you can compare the two. Happy watching!!
