Beloved TV puppets The Muppets are heading for OZ in a remake of THE WIZARD OF OZ.

KERMIT THE FROG, MISS PIGGY, GONZO THE GREAT and their pals will star alongside a human DOROTHY in the new project, which will be based on FRANK L BAUM's novel, not the 1939 MGM movie musical.

This will be The Muppets' latest adaptation of a classic story - they've also tackled A Christmas Carol and TREASURE ISLAND.
