Everybody knows the innovative, classic story of The Wizard of Oz. How about a change? In other words, how about a sequel? Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is a magical, mystical sequel of the Original Wizard of Oz that is a 3D animation with a whole new cast of characters. Marshal Mallow, an evil Jester, Wiser the Owl, Tugg, and a China Princess are just a few of the new characters, in Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, to look forward to seeing. The movie is meaningful, a comedy, and a classical twist to the original.
There is grave danger in the Land of Oz and the Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin man send off for help from Dorothy who was “The Witch Slayer.” For transportation to Oz, Dorothy is grabbed through a cyclone-like rainbow of colors and swirls into Oz. The evil Jester performs malicious acts, such as turning the creatures of Oz into puppets including Glinda, the good witch. This part of the movie was creepy. The “puppets” looked more like zombie marionettes. I don’t think that this scene would be appropriate for younger children to watch. It would scare them. By all means, I was quite afraid myself!
