Dorothy – Millie Bobby Brown
Judy Garland's performance made her a household name and would be impossible to replace, but Millie Bobby Brown exudes the talent, wonder, and kindness that make audiences fall in love with her.
Wicked Witch of the West - Helena Bonham Carter
A natural villain, Helena Bonham Carter was made for this role. Her cackling laugh, eccentric quirks, and dark mysteriousness would surely do the trick on a broomstick.
Glinda the Good Witch - Jessica Chastain
The Opposite of her sister in the West, Glinda is sugar and spice and everything nice. With a wand in her hand and a crown on her head, Jessica Chastain would have the same magical presence - and the familiar red hair is a nice touch!
The Cowardly Lion – James Corden
The Cowardly Lion may put on an act of being tough, but he is really just a big ball of feelings. James Corden, with his comedic genius and teddy-bear charm, would find courage in this role.
The Tin Man - Benedict Cumberbatch
The Tin Man is a tearful tin soldier who is in search of a heart to. Benedict Cumberbatch could play this character who must work through his emotions to find nerves of steel within.
Scarecrow - Ryan Reynolds
Scarecrow is the clumsy companion in need of some brains. Ryan Reynolds could certainly use his humor and wit to bring the Scarecrow to life.
Wizard of Oz - Jude Law
The Wizard of Oz, once imaged to be an all-powerful being, is revealed to be a fraud, using tricks and illusions to fool everyone. Jude Law is no stranger to playing the role of a grand wizard, but might enjoy playing that of one less glorified in the end.
