The various citizen's of Oz who appear in puppet cabinets with name plaques are all characters mentioned in previous Oz books. From left to right the name plaques (with the characters' first year of appearance in parenthesis) read: His Woodjesty of the Twigs (1922), Bandmaster of Tune Town (1927), Queen Else of Somewhere (1976), General Blotz (1935), Dainty China Princess (1900), Glinda (1900), General Candy Apple (1989), Grand Bozzywood* of Samandra (1930), Ferryman of Winkie River (1917), Chief Dipper of Pumperdink (1922), and Baron Belfaygor of Bourne (1929). *Bozzywood is actually a typo specific to this film. The character's name is actually Grand Bozzywoz of Samandra. See more »

Unusual Credit Style: In the closing credits, there are numerous entries for co-producers & other "producer" positions that list both husband & wife for each credit entry, such as "Jack & Jill Jones". Some credits are simply listed as a family unit. One such co-producer is listed as "The Ross Family". It is rare that credits are given in groupings of families. Most credits are a single person's name. See more »
This movie was AWFUL. None of my 4 children enjoyed this film (ages 5-13), and one fell asleep (we went at 11 am so he wasn't tired). The animation seemed cheap, like a direct to DVD type movie. Barbie movies are better animation than this movie was and that says a lot. The songs were random and about the oddest things. The characters made no sense and interacted in a bizarrely unemotional and unconnected way. Not one character was interesting, funny, deep, layered, anything. I didn't really recognize any of the voices of the "big name" actors who voiced the parts, save for Lea Michelle, who sounds like she is whining/crying all the time. And of course Martin Short as the strangest, least scary yet most highly disturbing villain ever. Whomever is giving this 10 stars is obviously paid to do so (there are people who are paid to give good reviews on movies before they come out to generate interest and get people to the theater) and/or possibly on uppers. I recommend not seeing this in the theater, save your money and if you must, rent it on Redbox for $1.29 or whatever. One of the worst kids movies I've seen in a long time- and I've seen 'em all.
