Some things just need to be left alone.

I've tried to keep my mouth shut on the matter. I really have.

I didn't want to be another one of "those people."

But Hollywood has officially crossed the line this time.

In fact, I'd go as far to say that Jesus is on his way back VERY soon.

What am I ranting and raving about you ask?
Apparently Disney thinks they need to do the story about the Wizard of Oz before Dorothy arrived.

They even released a trailer at Comic Con this year.

And try as I might, I can't resist hopping on my soapbox as long as it takes you to read this pathetic post a hot second. In fact, I feel it is my duty as a loyal and ardent fan of the one and only Wizard of Oz.

  1. It's the "Great and Powerful, Wizard of Oz," not the other way around, Disney.
  2. James Franco couldn't be a believable wizard if he tried, let alone THE Wizard of Oz.
  3. I watched the trailer, several times, and there is so much CGI that they may as well throw their attempts in the garbage can. Seriously, if Harry Potter can pull off all the wizardry and witchcraft without noticeable CGI, then Disney should able to do so too.
  4. The Wizard of Oz is and was an old man when he arrived in the land of Oz. 
  5. For crying out loud, get some new freaking material Disney and Hollywood for that matter. The Wizard of Oz has been done and very successfully so, I might add. LEAVE IT BE. It doesn't need a prequel. 
  6. I'm not naive enough to know what this is really about. It's what it's always about: MONEY. A few days before this trailer was released, it was announced that the rights to Wicked were sold to Universal. Since we all know Disney can't be left out in any form or fashion, here we sit with a stupid prequel about the Wizard of Oz. Now, this doesn't mean I won't see Wicked. I personally can't wait to see that movie. 
  8. This looks like a Tim Burton hot mess. If you're a fan, that's fine, but clearly I'm not.
If you read that text, you can also see that there is a Steel Magnolias remake in the works as well.

If they're willing to go after these two classics, they will be willing to go after Gone with the Wind. 

What kind of world would that be???

Okay this doesn't look too bad... don't kill me. I just like a lot of the actors in it. But the Steel Magnolias redo?! Not a fan!!!! That is not okay!
