Trivia

  • This is the 2nd Oz movie to be based off a broadway musical after The Wiz.
  • This is Universal Pictures' very first Oz movie project.
  • It was reported in 2011 that ABC (owned in part by Walt Disney Pictures) had plans to "strictly adapt" the novel as a miniseries and to remove elements of the musicial. It is unknown if this is still forthcoming since the televison series Once Upon a Time has introduced its own Oz based storyline. It is to be noted that ABC owns the rights to the book which they brought in 2009, it currently is unknown if a legal dispute may occur because of this.
