NBC has unveiled a new promo for its upcoming production of The Wiz Live!, which includes a new look at the star as the titular (and all-powerful) Wiz.

The clip, set to the musical’s “Brand New Day,” also gives glimpses of Shanice Williams as Dorothy, plus more of Oz’s main players including the Tin Man (Ne-Yo), Cowardly Lion (David Alan Grier), and Scarecrow (Elijah Kelley).

Mary J. Blige also stars as The Wicked Witch, alongside Common (The Gatekeeper)Amber Riley (Addaperle, The Good Witch)Stephanie Mills (Auntie Em), and Uzo Aduba (Glinda the Good Witch).

Directed by Kenny Leon, The Wiz Live! premieres Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m. ET on NBC. You can see the new promo below.
