‘Oz’ tells a great story with powerful imagery
As a kid, I loved to read. And because I loved to read, I had a voracious appetite for books, so it probably was no small blessing that my father had collected a rather large library of books over the years.
Also, like many kids my age (and quite a few older), I eagerly looked forward to the annual television broadcast of the 1939 classic “The Wizard of Oz.” But, unlike many of them, I was utterly disappointed when I finally cracked open L. Frank Baum’s children’s novel, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.”
So when Disney announced a few years ago they would be unveiling a “prequel” story that tells how The Wizard of Oz – who we learn was nothing more than a carnival stage magician from Omaha in “The Wizard of Oz” – came to be in Oz, I came to the conclusion that they planned to do more than tell just one story. After seeing “Oz the Great and Powerful,” I’m not only certain of it, I’m now absolutely certain that movie viewers will eventually see a “remake” of the 1939 film – more on that in a moment.
