Cast Will Return For ‘Oz The Great & Powerful 2′; Sequel Will Not Feature Dorothy

Oz The Great And Powerful Header

With a very impressive $80 million debut this weekend, it’s no surprise that Oz The Great and Powerful is getting a sequel. Mitchell Kapner has been tapped to write the next chapter of Disney’s Oz franchise (WB has their own Oz property), but the film’s director, Sam Raimi, may not return. Despite that possible set back, a majority of the cast are signed on for sequels. But one thing we might not see, besides Raimi’s direction, is a pivotal character to the 1939 original film.

Mila Kunis told E! Online, “We’re all signed on for sequels.” Co-star Rachel Weisz did say something different: she wasn’t sure whether or not there would be a sequel, but she shared Kunis’ enthusiasm. Although there are varying answers to a seemingly simple question, the cast is interested in returning to reprise their respective roles for the upcoming sequel.

With a majority of the characters set for return, one character that we won’t be seeing is Dorothy. Despite Oz The Great & Powerful being a prequel to the 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, producer Joe Roth has said that we won’t be seeing her in the sequel. Since the rights to the 1939 film are owned by Warner Bros., it’s unlikely that we will see her, Toto, or the ruby red slippers anytime soon. There were subtle nods to the Lion and Scarecrow though. Since Oz The Great & Powerful is a prequel, and the L. Frank Baum novels are of public domain, there are plenty of stories that Kapner can work with.

According to Roth, “It’s 20 years before Dorothy arrives,” he said. “A lot can happen in that time.”

So there you have it. We got a cast and a timeline for the sequel. So what do you think we should see in Oz The Great and Powerful 2?

    Can’t waith for it! Although they could have make such a diffrent movie from all the others. They could have made someone else the true Wicked Witch and that Theodora ended up with Oz in the end, something that has never seen before in any Disney and Oz movies, that he choiced for the bad guy… It can go to each way. That was why expected a little more from the Oz movie… And I still can’t believe what happend to poor Theodora… I will cry if she dies…

  • matt

    I think the outline should change and Theodora should become good again in some way. And let another wicked witch come along or something

  • matt

    I think she should be given the chance to become good again

  • Leax256 Productions

    plot twist: there is a third sister that replaces Theodora as the super wicked one. to my knowledge there was no name for the which other than “the Wicked Witch”
    Disney, do this.

  • Kat

    I would love to see Oz and Glinda should have some more love cute moments. And Theodora should find her sister and fight to get into the city with her sisters help.

  • 537les

    Well if its basically going by the 1939 film she dies with a splash of water.

  • 537les

    I haven’t read any of the books but I am interested in doing so. I was told the movie was mainly based off the Broadway type show they made from the book. There are many books so it may go in another direction. I would like to see the wicked witch sisters plot taking over and it leading up to Dorothy coming to oz. If you think about it it never really states why the wicked witch was in munchkin land before getting squashed..even if it has to be great and powerful 3 then 4 could be the reboot of the wizard of Oz. They can end the 3rd one by the landing the house on the wicked witch of the east..then the 4th as the reboot of the 1939 but more of the book. Dont get me wrong the musical is great but honestly they dont need the singing. Plus they never really got into the other good witch so you know who ca always become good again Nd thats when the wicked witch of the west shows up as a sister. I dont know i hope its good whatever they do.

  • 537les

    I haven’t read the books so I don’t know if they have names. They never showed the other good witch, the witch of the south so you know who could become good again and another more evil sister could be the wicked witch of the west.

  • John Talley

    it would be soooooooo cool if they did one like OZ (Whatever) :Rise Of Evanora…Like the ruby red slipers are like the fountain of youth,and evanora comes back to power and her and theodora/wicked witch of the west try and destroy emrald city leaving the heros to save emarald city… along with oz

  • Elt0nsf

    made my day =]

  • Moi Smith

    yes I would love that two

  • dzuni

    i want oz to have real magic powers ..

  • Kawwah

    I just want Chinagirl back. She was so cute. :P

  • Theo Houchin

    Did anyone else notice that Galinda was the good witch of the North and south.

  • Theo Houchin

    I would also like that matt

  • sabrina stedge

    You cant have a another wizard of Oz movie without Dorothy in it
    thats just not right shes the next step in the new version it would be great to see her and Toto in the Scarecrow in The Lion and the tin man all to return for a big movie the first one ever made was a hit and is still one after all these years and the new one was amazing I think it would be great to see all of them again so the of the joy and happiness and old one brought to all of can be passed on for years to come

  • BlameItOnFuckingObama

    Not my fault..

  • Jonathon Roberson

    What about Princess Mombi who is also a witch, The Gnome King, Ozma, TikTok, and Jack pumpkin head. Also, in Oz the Great and Powerful’s beginning after Oz’s magic act he, a woman visits him who is going to marry a man named John Gale. The two getting married could possibly be Dorothy’s parents. Also, the woman who is marrying John Gale’s alternate identity in Oz is Glinda. Could Glinda possibly be Dorothy’s mom? Also, what would become of Glinda if the woman marrying John Gale would visit Oz?

  • JPG68

    I’d love for her to become good as a result of a spell with a definite time limit – so whether she wants to or not, she has to go back to being bad again. There could be some wonderful and emotional drama seeing her face her inevitable descent into evil without being able to prevent it.

  • Philip Bernard Ion

    “Theodora, I know that your wickedness is not your doing, and if you should ever again find the goodness within you, you are welcome to return.” Well, that certainly leaves the possibility of her becoming good again!

  • Philip Bernard Ion

    When they refer to it as ‘Oz the Great and Powerful 2′, I suspect that may just be a placeholder – I wouldn’t be at all surprised if it actually has a completely different title

  • Philip Bernard Ion

    In the book she was the Witch of the South, whereas in the 1939 film she was the Witch of the North, who was a separate character in the book and they merged them

  • JPG68

    Let’s hope that being a new mom won’t stop her being able to return as Theodora in the next movie. I really loved Oz the great and Powerful for all its small flaws and I am really interested in seeing how they follow it up.

  • MarenaP

    if I want to see the 2nd part is with intrigue
