The idea was floated that at some point we would see where the baboons that Evanora used to do here dirty work came from and so I did some passes on an ominous home for them. The two characters in the center were done very early on for Oz: The Great and Powerful when there were a host of other minor villains from L. Frank Baum's books that we were trying out. The "Steam Bot" at the bottom was an early idea that Sam Raimi really wanted to see, and popped in and out of the movie as we were working on it. In the end it was too expensive and maybe too much of a spectacle and so was let go.
