Warner Bros., one of the top movie studios in the world, is partnering with a Disney-owned studio on a new live-action adaptation of the popular children’s book “Wizard Of Oz.”
The feature will be titled “Wizards of Oz,” and the book will be published by Warner Bros.’
Walt Disney Studios in 2019, Disney announced on Tuesday.
The studio is also working on a book and film series based on the story, which has been translated into English and other languages by The Little Book of the Wizard of Oz, which was created by Margaret Mitchell.
The book is a favorite among fans of the magical story of the little green men.
In “Wiz and the Wonderful World of Oz” — which is based on a children’s story by author E.B. White and illustrated by the late Arthur C. Clarke — the characters are given the name “Witches,” and their magic is used to fight evil.
The animated feature will feature a new musical score by Disney, and will include characters from the book.
The story follows Dorothy Gale and her sister, Belle, who are growing up on the magical land of Oz in the 1930s.
“We are excited to be collaborating with Disney on this special collaboration, and we can’t wait to bring it to audiences around the world,” Warner Bros CEO Kevin Tsujihara said in a statement.
The film will star Emma Watson, who will be playing the role of Dorothy Gale, and Will Arnett, who is playing the title character, a character called Scarecrow.
Warner Bros’ announcement comes just days after Disney announced it would release “Wix,” an animated feature based on “Wizzrobe,” a childrens book about a princess.
