Get Ready For Flying Monkeys – Warriors Of Oz Coming To SyFy

by on July 24, 2013


Get ready for more flying animals on the SyFy network – no, it’s not another sequel to “Sharknado” [though the thought of “Monkeynado” does have its charm] – as the science fiction-oriented channel will be producing “Warriors of Oz”, a television mini-series based on the popular “Wizard of Oz”. Set to be directed by Timur Bekmambetov [“Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter”], instead of traveling to Oz in a balloon during a tornado in Kansas, the mini-series will already be in Oz – more specifically, a post-apocalyptic future Oz where a warrior [who may or may not be Dorothy-like] will enlist the aid of three other warriors named Brainless [Scarecrow], Coward [Lion] and Heartless [Tin Man] to battle the evil wizard.

“Warriors of Oz” is tentatively scheduled for a Spring 2014 release.
