Get in Line for an Early View of "Oz"

The 4th Annual Tribeca Film Festival will take place from April 19th through May 1st. Of the hundreds of entries, there is one that will have Muppet fans waiting in line. "The Muppet Wizard of Oz" is sure to be popular when it gets its world premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival before airing on ABC. Screenings are free (first come first serve) and will be on April 27th, 30th and May 1st. Details on the festival itself can be found on their official website.

If you can't make it to New York City to catch the premiere, The movie will air as part of "the Wonderful World of Disney" on ABC. I have contacted ABC and the Muppet Holding Co about the exact air date, and they all say that it has not been decided yet. But they say it will be in "mid- to late May 2005" (the exact date will not be set until later this month). I'll keep you posted as soon as I hear anything.
