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.
A rainbow suncatcher can be seen in the kitchen when Dorothy is talking to Aunt Em. A nod to "Somewhere over the Rainbow" and the color that reflects a change when Dorothy lands in Oz. Instead of arriving to Oz in color it is now black and white via the snow. The Kansas scenes of "The Wizard of Oz" were filmed in sepia, not black and white. See more »
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!
