Storyline

During a twister, Dorothy is hit on the head by a gate and once again whisked away to the land of Oz. But this time, on her way to the Emerald City, she discovers a terrible plot by the witch Mombi to conquer Oz with an army of monster green elephants that's she's brewing up. She escapes with the help of Mombi's slave Pumpkinhead, and, together, they try to warn King Scarecrow and her other friends that Mombi is coming, but she finds that her friends haven't quite changed as much as she thought. So it's up to her, Pumpkinhead, and the living carousel horse Woodenhead to find a way to stop Mombi's Green Elephants. Written by Zedd

Trivia

Peter Lawford was the original voice of the Scarecrow, but his lines were rerecorded by Mickey Rooney. There were two soundtrack records released, one of which was a Japanese bootleg which still featured Lawford's singing voice instead of Rooney, as well as two songs that were changed or cut from the picture.

An excellent sequel to the 1939 film "The Wizard of OZ"

At first, I have never even heard of this film, nor that this film is intended to be a sequel to the 1939 live action film "The Wizard of OZ." I've bought the movie on DVD and I after watched it, I found an excellent sequel film. Though I was shocked and surprised by the negative reviews I would see on the web.

I love the talents of Paul Lynde, who played Uncle Arthur from TV's live-action comedy "Bewitched" and Liza Minnelli, who provided the voice of Dorothy, reprising the role originally played by her mother Judy Garland. And Liza DOES sound a lot like her mother, when said "You wicked old witch!" I love Judy, I have a few of her films.
