Rather than adapt a later or create a new Oz story, this production has Dorothy still in posession of the shoes, and she clings to an apple tree during a tornado which takes her back to Oz.... See full summary »
Manolo, a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family and following his heart, embarks on an adventure that spans three fantastic worlds where he must face his greatest fears.
Dorothy wakes up in post-tornado Kansas, only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her old friends the Scarecrow, the Lion, the Tin Man and Glinda from a devious new villain, the Jester. Wiser the owl, Marshal Mallow, China Princess and Tugg the tugboat join Dorothy on her latest magical journey through the colorful landscape of Oz to restore order and happiness to Emerald City.

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 »
So bad - I can't believe some of the good reviews. The Jester character was horrible and unfortunately on the screen practically the entire movie. The flying monkeys were everywhere and disgusting. A few redeeming characters like Wiser the Owl and Marshall Mallow tried to add some depth to the movie but were strapped by the script. This wasn't even as good as Saturday cartoons as far as the quality of the animation. I agree with the person who said people must be getting paid to write good reviews. I kept waiting for some great Bryan Adams songs
but where were they? The initial premise that a whole town would pick
up and move because some shyster told them they had to was also ridiculous.
