I came across a bit of news from Comic-Con about a prequel to the "Wizard of Oz." The visuals look really breathtaking, but I'm not sure about the plotline yet.
Have a look:
I'm also not sure about using a young, handsome guy as the Wizard. I would have though Matthew Broderick bore more of a resemblance to Frank Morgan, the actor who played the character in the 1939 movie.
But I guess he was either unavailable or just not thought of.
Anyway, the movie looks like it could be of interest.
