No Dorothy set to return to OZ just yet?

March 16th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Despite Dorothy Gale being the main character of the first of Frank L Baum’s original OZ books, it seems like her character is not set to return to our screens anytime soon.

OZ: The Great And Powerful producer Joe Roth has said there is plenty of material for the sequel but since it’s another 20 years in the land of OZ before Dorothy Gale blows in, ” A lot can happen in that time.”

He tells Darkhorizons that Dorothy, originally played by Judy Garland in the original 1939 movie, will “absolutely not” be in the sequel, although we’d imagine if this is set to be a mega franchise she will appear again sooner or later.

Hmmmmmmm wonder if Return To OZ is still canon?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
