A Wicked Gallery of Wizard of Oz Fan Art

The Wizard of Oz has been on my mind recently for two reasons.  For one, I was talking with some co-workers at happy hour about the whole Dark Side of the Moon syncing up with the movie thing (it sort of works for a bit, actually).  The second is that I recently read that Sam Raimi is set to direct a prequel to the movie.  Honestly, I’m not quite sure how I feel about that.  I don’t hold The Wizard of Oz to be some holy, untouchable movie that can never be reinterpreted, and I think Return to Oz is actually a really good sequel.  But a prequel?  Will it be a musical?  Will it be based on “Wicked?” I have some faith in Raimi; I just hope it doesn’t get the Tim-Burton-on-Alice-In-Wonderland treatment.

Anyway, take a look at some artists’ interpretations of Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion, the Scarecrow, and other Oz characters in the gallery below.
