Trivia:
Some characters from the book were not included in the cartoon adaptation, including:
  • Princess Gaylette & Prince Quelala, a generic fairy tale couple who are the Jester's former employers and tell Dorothy basic information about him. These characters (who come from a brief passage in the original Wizard of Oz book) are not very distinctive or memorable, which is probably why they were cut.
  • The Gamekeeper of Purplefield, who forces the heroes to participate in a The Most Dangerous Game (1932)-style contest in a maze.
  • A migrant family of dragons, whom the heroes help to find a home.

    Interestingly enough, the book itself had one "deleted scene," an excised chapter which was then published as a separate booklet. It involved a flower-destroying creature called REWOLF whom the heroes must tame and teach good manners.

One of the worst movies I've seen at the theater, 12 May 2014
Author: Earnest Bass from United States

I wasn't expecting a lot but this movie is one of the worst movies I've ever seen at the theater. If you are a hard-core fan of the Oz/Dorothy stories you might like it but if you are expecting a movie that is even remotely coherent you will be disappointed.

It's fantasy and it's geared toward kids, I get that, but the story and dialog here are so lame that even young kids will struggle to find this movie entertaining. It tries to mimic "Robots" at times (which IS a good movie) and tries to sort of be a Disney-esque musical but it fails to be anything other than just a really bad movie.

This should have been a straight-to-DVD release if it was even released at all. It features big named talent (Patrick Stewart, Dan Akroyd, Kelsey Grammar, Jim Belushi,etc.) but with story this poorly-written nobody could have saved this movie.
