When a tornado transports Dorothy Gale from Lucas, Kan., to the faraway land of Oz, her arrival sets in motion a prophecy about a disastrous event known as The Beast Forever and strikes fear into the land's almighty ruler, the Wizard. On her quest to meet the Wizard in Emerald City, Dorothy encounters witches, an amnesiac soldier, a sheltered little boy and many more mysterious beings who will ultimately shape the future of Oz and Dorothy's place in it.
In the stories, Jack is Jack Pumpkinhead, made by Tip with sticks and a pumpkin to scares Mombi. In the show, Jack being a live reference of both Pumpkinhead and Tin Man helped the series to maintain its human approach, avoiding being a fable like the stories, as during entire show there are no animals or inanimated objects acting like humans.

Slow start but this show has a great cast, story line and on screen chemistry
I wasn't sure I'd like this show at first. It wasn't until close to the end of the first episode that I decided I needed to see more. Now I can't wait for each new episode! The cast is fantastic, the story line is mysterious and interesting. I think the sets and film locations are very well done. I'm curios to see what Glynda plans to do with the young witches and if the Wizard turns out to be Dorothy's father. Dorothy and Lucas have great chemistry too. Yes, it's completely different from the original story and movie. Toto is lovable but would also have no problem defending Dorothy if necessary. I think Emerald City has years worth of potential. So...WATCH THIS SHOW!
