Storyline

During a twister, Dorothy is hit on the head by a gate and once again whisked away to the land of Oz. But this time, on her way to the Emerald City, she discovers a terrible plot by the witch Mombi to conquer Oz with an army of monster green elephants that's she's brewing up. She escapes with the help of Mombi's slave Pumpkinhead, and, together, they try to warn King Scarecrow and her other friends that Mombi is coming, but she finds that her friends haven't quite changed as much as she thought. So it's up to her, Pumpkinhead, and the living carousel horse Woodenhead to find a way to stop Mombi's Green Elephants. Written by Zedd

Strange movie, and a bizarre surprise
14 April 2004 | by (South West, UK) – See all my reviews

My kids liked this movie but I think even they started flagging after a while. I totally agree it's way too long, and some really weird music and songs.

The most interesting thing from a UK perspective is an odd moment in the Overture at the beginning of the movie. It surprisingly contains a well known and much loved UK TV theme tune.

British viewers will recognise the News At Ten theme tune in it's entireity minus of course the chimes of Big Ben. I always thought it was specially composed for the show but it was lifted from the score of this movie!

Who knew?
