We can't wait to follow this yellow brick road!

There's less than a month until NBC airs its annual live musical, and these sneak peeks just keep getting better and better.

While we've gotten a look at what some of the stars of The Wiz Live! will be wearing on Dec. 3, Monday's all-new trailer for the stage production shows off what we can expect from the cast's more famous stars.

We're talking almost every main character — from Uzo Aduba and Amber Riley's Good Witches to Queen Latifah's titular Wiz.

In fact, Mary J. Blige's Wicked Witch of the West is the only person we've yet to see, so they must be saving the wickedest for last!

This is shaping up to be so much bigger than Sound of Music and Peter Pan and we could not be more excited.

Ch-ch-check out our latest look at The Wiz Live! before it airs Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. EST on NBC (above)!!!

They're officially off to see the wizard!

We're still two months away from getting swept back to Oz for The Wiz Live!, but by the looks of things, we think it's going to be well worth the wait.

NBC released the first cast portrait for the musical on Tuesday, and we're really feeling the modern costumes!

From Shanice Williams' adorable Dorothy and David Alan Grier's confident Cowardly Lion to Ne-Yo's suave Tin Man and Elijah Kelley's rather creepy Scarecrow, they sure do look like they're having a blast!

Unfortunately, we still haven't gotten a sneak peek of Uzo Aduba, Amber Riley, Mary J. Blige, Queen Latifah, Common, or the rest of the cast, but we have a feeling their costumes will be just as AH-Mazing.

Frances McDormand wants to get to the after party already!

But instead of giving a long-winded thank you speech like the others, she decided to do the opposite and barely talk at all!

Maybe she thought the show was running too long? LOLz!

This is the third award of the night for Olive KitteridgeLisa Cholodenko also won for Directing and Jane Anderson for Writing!
