What Do You Know About 'Oz the Great and Powerful'?

Studio Rights 1 of 11

Disney's 'Oz the Great and Powerful' is indebted to the 'The Wizard of Oz,' but Warner Bros. owns the rights to many unforgettable parts of the classic film we all know and love, which means you won't see Dorothy's ruby red slippers or the Wicked Witch of the West's signature green skin and mole in the new Sam Raimi film.

As you'll discover shortly, Raimi's film does pay homage to 'The Wizard of Oz' in many ways, but the story of 'Oz the Great and Powerful' is rooted in Frank L. Baum's books that provided the inspiration for the 1939 classic, not the movie itself.
