Is this a remake of the Original Wizard Of OZ?
No. It is based from the same story with the inclusion of the book The Marvelous Land of Oz, the second OZ Book written by L. Frank Baum.
Will the movie have all the original Characters from the book The Wonderful Wizard of OZ?
Yes, and more! The great thing about this movie will be that some of the original aspects of the book and movie will be shared. On the other hand the movie will feature new characters that existed in other OZ books and new characters that the writer/director Chris Raines has created.
Who is Chris Raines?
A very good question, so it is better if Chris himself answer this question. "I grew up in Douglasville, GA where I currently live and own an independent record label and entertainment business. I am a musician by heart, having played in my former band Daystar and as a solo artist. I released three albums in the past three years and performed around Atlanta for a number of years. I am avidly looking to make a mainstream stride into the music industry and along the way bring new aspects to my entertainment business, DSTAR28 ENTERTAINMENT. Being a Christian is above all the most important thing in my life, next being my family whom I have been very blessed to have."
