Disney already is prepping a return to Oz.
Studio has commissioned a follow up to “Oz the Great and Powerful” from screenwriter Mitchell Kapner, who co-wrote the first film with David Lindsay-Abaire.
While no plot details are yet available, Kapner can work with what’s featured in L. Frank Baum’s novel “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,” which is public domain. But he can’t use any of the iconic creative additions from the original film — Dorothy’s ruby slippers, for example — as Warner Bros. owns the 1939 film.
“Oz The Great and Powerful,” which bows Friday, is considered a prequel to the earlier film. Disney declined to comment on sequel plans.
Kapner’s previous bigscreen credits include “The Whole Nine Yards” and “The Whole Ten Yards.” Grant Curtis and Joshua Donen also are producers on “Oz.”
