It's a jungle out there for Blu, Jewel and their three kids after they're hurtled from Rio de Janeiro to the wilds of the Amazon. As Blu tries to fit in, he goes beak-to-beak with the vengeful Nigel, and meets his father-in-law.
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 »

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 »
Clicking your heels ain't getting you anywhere this time...
You know, if I let my eyes glaze over, it's really colorful, and I can pretend it's something awesome. Joking aside, the film shot for the moon, and made it to Toledo. Great talent behind the voice acting, but the story was missing the wonder of the books, and the animation was woefully substandard for a $70 million production.
I was so looking forward to this film. The trailers looked interesting, and I've been a "Wizard" fan since I was a kid. Where did the money go in this movie? It certainly didn't go to the script, or the animation. Both are sub-par and lacking in detail.
Many of the jokes fall flat, and the film feels more like a direct-to-DVD production you'd find in the $5 bin next to the poorly animated Disney knockoffs.
I don't like saying that, as I'm a huge fan of many of the stars voicing characters in this production, but it's just bad. I recommend watching the original instead of this poor effort.
