We're Off to See the CG-Animated Wizard of Oz

We're Off to See the CG-Animated Wizard of Oz

Just as we're getting a Three Stooges movie for a new generation of moviegoers, The Wizard of Oz will also be reappearing on the big screen — in CG animation. The $25 million project is backed by a French production company and will be based on Frank Baum's original novel.

The Variety article adds, "The English-language adaptation maintains the tale's main characters and settings. Unlike the MGM classic, however, it's not a musical."

On the one hand, with today's animation technology, the possibilities are limitless for what Oz might look like, and that could be awesome. On the other hand, do we need another Wizard of Oz movie? Is this messing with a classic? What do you think?

I sometimes like remakes and other times I hate it. If the Muppets redo something it's always good. I also loved Sci-Fi's version of the tale. It was the same idea but not the same story.

it might be interesting, but I LOVE the original musical. I agree with FlamesofJune - Wicked needs to be a movie!

Don't mess with it! I would however like to see a Wicked movie, since the musical is NEVER playing anywhere near me.

Hmm...Im interested to check this out. I love the Wizard the Oz and Im inclined to read the book if its going to be based on that more so than the classic that is supposedly to be ruined.

you never know though - it could end up being really good. think about how charlie and the chocolate factory turned out when it was redone, and that movie was a CLASSIC. i'm sure that it won't be as bad as you think. at least that's my hope!
