A great adaption of the story
29 August 2001 | by (Yucaipa,CA) – See all my reviews

I have always liked the story "The Wizard of Oz." My first experience with it was of, of course, the 1939 musical with Judy Garland. Next I discovered that Disney had made a sequel titled "Return to Oz," and enjoyed it as well. Then I saw this movie when it first aired on HBO, I think I was 3 or 4 at the time, and I loved it. After that I never saw it again until a few months ago when I bought a copy. I still loved it.

Anyway, you already know the story, so here are my likes and dislikes. Good stuff: Good animation, good acting, a well written script, and a pretty fast pace. Bad stuff: The pace lags a bit in the middle, but it picks up again after a little while.

**** out of *****. I have yet to see "The Emearld City of Oz," but I have seen and own the other 2 installments and like them also.
