Corny in a lot of places. But it is still fun.
17 March 2013 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This has to be my favourite adaptation of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz that I have seen so far. For all the people that want an accurate adaptation of the book then this is it. Provided that this also has it's problems.

The animation could have been a lot better. The Scarecrow and Tin Woodsman look like something I could have drawn (and I'm a terrible artist). Then while watching you get the distinct impression that this movie is more for children rather than the whole family (which was Baum's intention for the novels).

I did enjoy this movie for everything else though. Although the voice acting could have been a little bit better this is still good in other departments as well. I did like the scene with the Kalidah mainly because of the animators interpretation on Baum's imagination.

So if you are a fan of the books or want to see an adaptation closer to the books than the 1939 movie (although I would like to emphasise the fact that this is a rather corny interpretation) then pick this up.
