The Wiz filming locations

Diana Ross in Corona Park

The 1978 Movie Musical The Wiz filmed scenes in and around NYC. In today’s video we will visit 3 of those locations. Starring Diana Ross, Michael Jackson, Nipsey Russell, Lena Horne, Richard Pryor and countless others The Wiz is the Motown all black retelling of the Frank Baum classic Wizard Of Oz. Resetting the movie in NYC and setting OZ in a trippy post apocalyptic NYC gave this film a touch of grounded realism in such a fantasy world.
