While Sam Raimi is working on explaining how the Wizard got to Oz, there’s another film in production that’ll tell the story of what happens after Dorothy left. That film is called Dorothy of Oz and it’s a 3D animated sequel to the 1939 original about Dorothy being transported back to help a new group of misfits find the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion in order to defeat an evil Jester who wants to take over Oz. Directed by Daniel St. Pierre, the film sports a start studded voice cast including Lea Michele, Martin Short, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Jim Belushi, Oliver Platt and Patrick Stewart and is reportedly scheduled for release in April 2012. We’ve already seen some character sketches, but now a bunch of concept art has surfaced that gives us a good idea of what to expect from the film. We’ve got the photos and more after the jump.

Gnomeo & Juliet isn’t a bad concept. What if garden gnomes came to life when people aren’t around kind of like the toys in Toy Story. The idea is to use this concept to introduce Shakespeare’s classic Romeo and Juliet to kids. The film appears to go wrong is in the execution. The computer animated film has a very Dreamworks vibe to it, complete with unfunny popculture references. Gnomeo & Juliet features the music of Elton John and the voice work of James McAvoy, Emily Blunt, Michael Caine, Jason Statham, Maggie Smith, Patrick Stewart, Julie Walters, and Ozzy Osbourne. It should be mentioned that Kelly Asbury, who last directed Shrek 2, helmed this movie.
Asbury started on the Disney film The Black Cauldron, and worked as an artist on The Little Mermaid, The Rescuers Down Under, Beauty and the Beast, The Nightmare Before Christmas, Toy Story and Shrek. Before Shrek 2, Asbury made her feature directorial debut with the 2D Dreamworks film Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.
