View in slideshow Return to Oz: See the Old and New Characters Side by Side

When Oz the Great and Powerful alights in cinemas this week, we'll be re-acquainted with some classic movie characters that first graced the screen in The Wizard of Oz 74 years ago. Since this is a prequel of sorts and focuses on the wizard (played by James Franco), we don't see all of the characters you know and love (sorry, Dorothy), but there are a few younger, slightly different versions of a few familiar Oz denizens. Click through to see how the shiny new class stacks up against the originals.
