VERY GOOD OVERALL
27 August 2004 | by hotjazz69See all my reviews

As a fan of the original book i recommend this film. I'm not a big fan of the character art work but its great to see sections of the book explored that are ignored in the 1939 movie.

The film takes on a pleasing dark tone in all the right places and can create quite an atmosphere. especially in the witch's castle. i love they way she is animated

annoyingly they have given Dorothy red shoes although they only refer to them as magic slippers, the actual design (with curly up toes) is pleasing but i wish they were silver.

Also the munchkin houses are drawn much in the same way as in the JR Neil drawings and the munchkins themselves resemble the Denslow originals.
