Bowie’s Goblin King was also not going to be “represented in the film......

Heh. Stumbled on that one one night while channel surfing. Thought I must have accidentally dropped acid or something (or should have).

She will be in the new Top Gun sequel. Still amazingly beautiful!

When my oldest daughter was twelve, I bought her the DVD, she loved it and showed it to my younger daughter years later! I also showed them "Return To Oz" another great fantasy movie!
