Produced by Motown Productions and Universal Pictures, The Wiz is an urbanized retelling of L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz featuring an entirely African-American cast. The film follows the adventures of Dorothy (Diana Ross), a shy schoolteacher from Harlem, New York, who finds herself magically transported to the wonderland of Oz, which resembles a fantasy version of New York City. Befriended by a Scarecrow (Jackson), a Tin Man (Russell), and a Cowardly Lion (Ted Ross), Dorothy travels through the world of Oz to seek an audience with the mysterious ‘Wiz’ (Pryor), who they say has the power to take her home.
