We’ve known about The Wizard of Oz tribute at the Oscars for quite some time, but only know are we learning the scope of the proposed tribute.

Judy Garland’s three children will reunite onstage at the Academy Awards this coming Sunday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the 1939 film that cemented their late mother’s legend.

Liza Minnelli, daughter Garland and an Oscar winner for 1972’s Cabaret, will participate in the tribute alongside sister Lorna Luft and brother Joey. Minnelli is Garland’s daughter by director Vincente Minnelli, while the Luft siblings are her children by third husband/manager, Sid Luft.

The Academy refuses to confirm or deny reports of a reunion. In addition, the Academy has not revealed what the tribute to The Wizard of Oz will entail, exactly. But the trio, who’ve had a tumultuous relationship, are reportedly enthusiastic about the tribute. We definitely know we’re getting a tribute though, and I’m guessing it’s going to be incredibly poignant, no matter what.
