This list is ranking of various Oz film or television productions that were announced but have not been released. Only a few of these were officially canceled whereas others do not have statements coming from the companies nor individuals reported to be involved.

For this reason the Wiki Policy is to use speculation based on years passed from last official news item plus other indications of cancellation. The limit for possibly to move over to probably will be set at five years symbolically because production on The Wizard of Oz (1939) started five years after it was reported in 1933 that Samuel Goldwyn had bought the rights to the 1st book and intended to make a film based on it. This means as of 2023 any project that was last heard about before 2018 will be under that heading.
