This is particularly true of movies in which the source material is a book (as this is). There's always loads of stuff lost in translating a book to a movie and that means there is loads of material left unexplored.
That's the issue with Wizard, it's been told SO many times..

Why not do the other books in the series? Not like there's a shortage of them.

I think the SciFi miniseries delved into those books for material. Hopefully any new movie will do so as well.

I'll lay you odds, if it's a big studio movie, they try to remake the 1939 musical.
