Oz the Great and Powerful
James Franco books a return trip to Oz in Sam Raimi’s fantasy prequel

That film’s $330 million domestic box office certainly incentivized Disney to come up with more family fantasy reboots. Oddly enough, instead of dipping into the deep well of already Disneyfied fairy tales, the company has decided to go with a story made famous by crosstown rivals at MGM.
