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?

  1. 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…

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

    Comment by matt — June 14, 2013 @ 10:23 pm

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

    Comment by matt — June 14, 2013 @ 10:24 pm

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

    Comment by 537les — June 28, 2013 @ 1:37 am

  9. 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

    Comment by dzuni — August 2, 2013 @ 2:43 pm

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

    Comment by Kawwah — August 9, 2013 @ 7:57 am

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

    Comment by Theo Houchin — August 19, 2013 @ 2:06 pm

  15. I would also like that matt

    Comment by Theo Houchin — August 19, 2013 @ 2:07 pm

  16. 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

  17. Not my fault..

    Comment by BlameItOnFuckingObama — December 30, 2013 @ 1:21 am

  18. 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?

  19. 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.

    Comment by JPG68 — March 19, 2014 @ 7:43 pm

  20. “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!

    Comment by Philip Bernard Ion — March 29, 2014 @ 7:29 am

  21. 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

    Comment by Philip Bernard Ion — March 29, 2014 @ 7:31 am

  22. 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

    Comment by Philip Bernard Ion — March 29, 2014 @ 7:33 am

  23. 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.

    Comment by JPG68 — March 29, 2014 @ 7:35 am

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

    Comment by MarenaP — April 17, 2014 @ 10:06 pm

  25. No.I like her more when she’s wicked.I like EVIL because in th real world good never wins.

    Comment by evilandwicked — May 3, 2014 @ 4:12 pm

  26. i think they should make a story on how evanora killed glinda the goods farther ( the king /wizard ) and how it all happend but i think rachel weisz has to play evanora to do that so it feels like the real story and then thadora is on hoilday with her family when evanora is killing the king cuz it says in oz the great and powerful that thadora and the people from oz was folled by evanora as glinda said. cuz i said to my self i won’t to know the story of how glindas farther died the real story like who was glindas dad and why evanora killed him and that i think that would be a good family/fantasy movie

    Comment by evanora fan ( karla ) — May 6, 2014 @ 4:09 pm

  27. but then thadora says “never ” but on the other hand thadoras sister ( evanora ) could get well jell over how evil she is and turns her back good without her knowing.

    Comment by evanora fan ( karla ) — May 6, 2014 @ 4:13 pm

  28. that is what i did not get cuz in the 1939 film she was the good witch of the north but in the 2013 film she is the good witch of the south. and i no sam ramie did not won’t this film to be like the 1939 but that one thing has bugged me but i am a really big oz fan

    Comment by evanora fan ( karla ) — May 6, 2014 @ 4:16 pm

  29. i think if they do that it would not be come a big hit cuz if you look at the new film out (oz dorthy returns) that has not be come a big hit not cuz it is a cartoon but because it is not the same cuz no director can beat the amazing wonderful wizard of oz 1939 will alway be in our child hood the way we have seen it

    Comment by evanora fan ( karla ) — May 6, 2014 @ 4:23 pm

  30. i like that idea about oz and glinda but not to sure on thadora and evanora. i like the part on going back and fighting once again but i think evanora has to be pretty again to do that cuz at the end on oz the great and powerful glinda took evanora’s necklace of and it made her ugly so maybe she could use a spell and transformed her self back to a lovely lady as in pretty and falls in love with a man who is evil and evanora and her lover and thadora goes back once again to fight

    Comment by evanora fan ( karla ) — May 6, 2014 @ 4:31 pm

  31. omg me two. i was bored so i type in would there be a oz the great and powerful 2 omg i was so happy wonder what year it would come out in tho may inn 2016 i would still be in to oz then omg i will be into oz forever ahh it still makes me happy now just seeing that

    Comment by evanora fan ( karla ) — May 6, 2014 @ 4:34 pm

  32. i love the idea of makeing a second one but wait you can not just make evanora all ugly and that so she would have to become pertty again and it says in a way the walt disney does have no right’s over the rubby slipers cuz you do not won’t a chilrens film with a ugly witch like that if you look at the clip on youtube type in evanora and glindas fight and it will come up and you see at the end of the clip she is really ugly and chilren can get nightmares,cry,scream or what ever they will do so in a way you need pretty ppl in the land of oz film and for thadora i think she was pretty all the way to the end even thoght she was green so i think evanora should be come pretty again to be in the movie maybe she can make anouther necklace orrrrr as
    ( evanora fan ( karla) said maybe make a movie on how evanora killed the king and how thadora did not see it and why evanora kkkilled the king and it would be good to see china girl and finaly in the movie so god no’s what will happen in this movie but hopefuly it is going to be good and it is a shame that mr.ramie is not going to be directing the movie and i hope. james franco,micstell wilams,rachel weisz and mila kunis comes back cuz it would not be the same without the same cast. as someone has said they are a oz fan of the books but i am a oz fan on the movies and i got all the dolls of oz the great and powerful i hopefuly i can get the dolls of the 1939 film but yh that is all i got to say

    Comment by kjennings — May 7, 2014 @ 2:46 am

  33. I think theadore should become good because I really like her good it was sad when she stayed bad

    Comment by debbie — May 25, 2014 @ 6:54 pm

  34. we want Jennifer Lawrence to be Dorothy Gale in the sequel and remake of 1939 classic ” the Wizard of Oz”.

    Comment by Derek Armstrong — August 8, 2014 @ 9:08 pm

  35. Exactly what I thought. The true wicked witch was the sister that was manipulating the other.

    Comment by John Stockton — October 24, 2015 @ 9:53 am

  36. I think it was a good movie I also think you guys should make a second part and see what will happen because it will be be cool if the Wicked Witch will turn good or not and if Oz will have a child with the princess.

    Comment by Misael Suarez — April 11, 2016 @ 5:27 am

  37. i only wanted to see tin man and te scarcow and the loin instead

    Comment by David Conway — May 21, 2016 @ 4:07 pm

  38. Yes, Please we like to evil witch build up a new castle in Dark Forest, and how work do someone become into Scarecrow, Oilman, and Lion? like Oilman got rust from rain how work in Part 2 of OZ The Great and Powerful? Will they work on this film? Let me know, please.

    Comment by David Johnson — July 5, 2016 @ 12:47 am

  39. They can’t reboot The Wizard of Oz, MGM and it’s subisdaries own that L. Frank Baum novel and the ruby slippers. Disney has already gotten in trouble once using ruby slippers in their movies. So that’s why they have to wait on having Dorothy arrive because they don’t and can’t get the rights to that story.

    Comment by Zac Covault — October 29, 2016 @ 3:18 am

  40. 1. If you’ve read the actual books the Princess and Mombi are two totally different characters. The Princess from the land of Iv who switches her heads is not the same witch as Mombi. The only time two characters have been portrayed as the same person were in Disney’s cult classic return to oz and the final book in the wicked series.

    Comment by Zac Covault — October 29, 2016 @ 3:21 am

  41. I’m pretty sure Glinda introduces herself as The Good Witch of the South in the movie when she meets Oscar. And no the wicked witches in the books don’t have names. In fact the wicked witches are barely in the wonderful wizard of oz.

    Comment by Zac Covault — October 29, 2016 @ 3:22 am

  42. I heard there may be no sequel to Oz the Great and Powerful. Has anyone heard otherwise?
