LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY’S RETURN (originally titled Dorothy of Oz) is a long-delayed 3D animated musical feature-film, based on one of the world’s most popular and beloved fairy tales, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum, and the further adventure books written by his great-grandson, Roger S. Baum. Produced with state-of-the-art computer graphics and the latest 3D stereoscopic techniques for animation, this latest chapter in the Oz legacy will be entertaining to a whole new generation of fans.
Directed by Dan St. Pierre and Will Finn, the plot begins as Dorothy Gale (voiced by Lea Michele) returns to Kansas to find it devastated. Dorothy then finds a new way to get back to the Land of Oz, only to discover that her old friends the Scarecrow (voiced by Dan Aykroyd), Tin Man (voiced by Kelsey Grammer), Cowardly Lion (voiced by James Belushi) and the entire Land of Oz, are all in grave danger. On Dorothy's new journey through Oz, she meets new friends like a marshmallow man named Marshall Mallow (voiced by Hugh Dancy), a china doll princess (voiced by Megan Hilty), and a tugboat named Tugg (voiced by Patrick Stewart). With the help of her new friends, they band together against a wicked Jester (voiced by Martin Short) who wants to control Oz.
