I don’t know about your family, but mine are huge fans of The Wizard of Oz. I remember as a child being completely mesmerized by it and so excited when once a year they would show it on broadcast television. My sister and I would skip around for weeks saying “Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My!” and “Follow the yellow brick road”. I could go on and on. I am absolutely ecstatic to see the new movie Legends Of Oz: Dorothy’s Return coming to theaters May 9th.
Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is a 3D-animated musical based on the adventure books by Roger Stanton Baum, the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum. A continuation of one of the world’s most popular and beloved fairy tales, Legends of Oz finds Dorothy (Lea Michele) waking to post-tornado Kansas, only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) from a devious new villain, the Jester (Martin Short). Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), China Princess (Megan Hilty) and Tugg the tugboat (Patrick Stewart) join Dorothy on her latest magical journey through the colorful landscape of Oz to restore order and happiness to Emerald City. Set to the tunes of Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams, Legends of Oz marks a charming, family-friendly return to the Oz franchise.

I am so pleased to see that is another musical as I love musicals and so do my children. What I think is also great about this movie is it seems to have great humor. With voices of Jim Belushi, Martin Short, Kelsey Grammer and Dan Aykroyd, how could there NOT be humor? Even in the trailer there are so many funny moments that made me giggle out loud such as the Peeps (you just have to watch the trailer to see what I mean).
I look forward to seeing the vivid colors of Oz presented in 3D animation. I am sure it will be extremely visually stimulating.
There is also sure to be some awesome toys that come out with this movie like this adorable Singing Dorothy Fashion Doll from Bandai Toys.
