In a world where everything classic is getting a reboot, a reimagining, or a remake, I'm surprised it's taken this long to announce that the Wizard of Oz is getting the same treatment. As fans of the 1939 classic may recall, it was announced a reboot was in the works back in the winter of 2021, but it seems those plans fell through.

The 'Wizard Of Oz' Remake Is Happening
The fantasy musical is nothing short of a cult classic.
While I understand some may be hesitant to open their hearts to a new version, I'm sure Kenya Barris will keep all the same magic as the original while bringing a fresh new take.
I'm excited to see how this will turn out!
