Animated Film Will Retell ‘Wizard of Oz’ From Toto’s Point of View


What was Toto thinking during his adventures in Oz with Dorothy? We’re about to find out.

A new animated Warner Bros. film will be told from the famous terrier’s perspective. It’s based on the children’s book “Toto: The Dog-Gone Amazing Story of The Wizard Of Oz,” which was written by Michael Morpurgo and illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark.

It’s, of course, based on the original books by L. Frank Baum, made famous by the 1939 film starring Judy Garland Dorothy and adorable terrier Terry (later renamed Toto) as her plucky canine companion.

In the book, “Papa Toto” tells his pups about the time he and Dorothy were swept away by a twister.


Mark Burton, who wrote the Aardman Studio films “Shaun the Sheep” and “Early Man,” is writing the screenplay, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

  1. Well as tired as I am of all the remakes Hollywood insists on pumping out as of late, at least they’re doing something a little different and interesting with this one. It’ll be interesting to see if they make it into more of a comedy or where they go with it.
