The Movie is called Dorothy of Oz, and will be a full on CGI film slated to be released sometime in 2012.
And yes it will be a musical as well.
Dan St. Pierre will direct this version of Oz. Dan has worked on Lion King and Aladdin before, so he has some cool work under his belt.
This will be an adaptation on this book HERE.
GLEE’s Lea Michele is voicing Dorothy, Dan Aykroyd is Scarecrow, Kelsey Grammer is The Tin Man, James Belushi is The Cowardly Lion. Patrick Stewart, Hugh Dancy, Oliver Platt, and Martin Short are among the picture’s other vocal performances.
So we got quite the voice cast set up. Now I just hope the CGI looks good. I’m sure it will and I hope that this will appeal to all ages like the PIXAR films have been doing for the past few years.
