Oz DVD Features

The Walt Disney Home Entertainment Customer Relations is responding to e-mails about the features for the upcoming Muppet's Wizard of Oz DVD. They say the DVD will include a Making-Of Featurette (Featuring Pepé), "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" Music Video Starring Ashanti, outtakes and bloopers, an extended ending, and more! It is unsure how solid this information is, being they also respond with the DVD's release date as Sunday, May 15, 2005 (which is completely false). The Muppets Holding Co reported to me that the DVD features are still being worked on and nothing definite can be reported yet. Despite what the consumer relations information is reporting, I have been told that the DVD will be release on August 9, 2005; however at this, the exact details of the disc are not completely ready. They are still working on lining everything up. Keep in mind that in a huge company, like Disney, the Consumer Relations representatives work off the small amount of information specially provided to them - sometimes there are errors and misstatements (just look at HIT and the whole Fraggle Rock season box set blunder of last fall). I am working to sort out the claims from the Customer Relations, the DVD producers, The Muppet Holding Co., and Walt Disney Home Entertainment -- I'll keep you all posted as information on the disc develops. And remember, as always, to watch "The Muppets' Wizard of Oz" on Friday, May 20, 2005 at 8/7c, only on ABC.
