Yes, friends, Yellow Brick Road, the animated musical feature that I am writing and co-directing, is moving right along!
We have a beautiful new poster created by our art director, Tally Todd. I'm rather in love with this artwork, and I think it captures the essence of fun and magic that we want for the film. You'll spot some familiar characters on this poster, and one villainous figure you may not recognize...
In Yellow Brick Road, the adult Dorothy Gale teams up with Oscar Diggs, the former Wizard of Oz, to face the mysterious Betsy Bobbin, who is tearing apart every corner of the land in search of the Silver Slippers. Our heroes will have to work with General Jinjur, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Lion, and the Good Witches in order to uncover Betsy's motives and ultimately defeat her.
The film is currently in pre-production, with release slated for 2016. We are beginning the casting process, with Ramona Mallory already signed on to provide the voice for Betsy Bobbin.
Ramona is insanely talented, having experience on both the stage and screen. She starred in the 2009 Broadway revival of A Little Night Music, alongside musical theatre legends Angela Lansbury, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Bernadette Peters.
I'm also really excited to have Leigh Scott, who I first worked with on Dorothy and the Witches of Oz, on board as co-director and producer.
Keep an eye out for more details on Yellow Brick Road very soon. Go ahead and "like" our Facebook page, and we'll be sure to keep you up-to-date on all the latest with the film!
