Following the huge success of the Disney movie Oz the Great and Powerful, which went on to gross $493m worldwide, it was no real surprise when talk soon turned to an Oz the Great and Powerful sequel. It seemed for a while that we would definitely get an Oz the Great and Powerful 2, with most of the stars happy to return for the sequel.
It is almost a year ago now, since the likes of Rachel Weisz (Evanora), Mila Kunis (Theodora) and Michelle Williams (Glinda) all stated that they were all up for reprising their roles for the proposed sequel. It was then confirmed that director Sam Raimi would not be involved, while it was also believed that Mitchell Kapner would pen the screenplay for the sequel.
Following that, producer Joe Roth came out and said that, while an Oz the Great and Powerful sequel was being planned, there would still be no sign of Dorothy, as it was some 20 years before she arrived in Oz. However, all these months later and we still have no sign of an Oz the Great and Powerful sequel being made.
While there did seem like there was a lot of hope for an Oz the Great and Powerful sequel hitting the big screen, nothing has moved on the project for so long and, IMDb have the project as still being in the pitch phase, which means even if they do eventually decide to make Oz the Great and Powerful 2, it will be sometime before it happens.
