The human cast of "The Muppets Wizard of Oz" was announced last month and Muppet Central has received an updated cast list of the Muppet characters and performers in the film.

Since the movie is currently in the beginning production stages, it is possible that there may be some character changes and additions before the telefilm airs late next Spring on "The Wonderful World of Disney".

Veteran Muppeteer Jerry Nelson is not performing in this film as his classic Muppet characters have recently been recast. Reportedly, Kevin Clash is not performing due to conflicts with his Sesame Street taping schedule. Kevin's characters will likely be looped in post-production.

Sources have confirmed that there is a "nod" to Frank Oz in the script. Hopefully this little tribute will make it into the final telefilm.
