Wizard of Oz to Get LGBTQ-Inclusive, Racially Diverse Remake

The 1939 film of The Wizard of Oz is an LGBTQ+ classic, but two new versions of the story are on the way, one set to be explicitly LGBTQ-inclusive.Kenya Barris, creator of Black-ish and Grown-ish, recently told Variety his version will feature a diverse range of characters. “The original was an allegory and a reflection of the way the world was at the time with things like the Great Depression and the Dust Bowl,” he said. “Now we’re going to turn a mirror on where we’re at right now and take disparate characters from the LGBTQ community, from different cultural communities and socioeconomic communities, and tell a story that reflects the world.
