Soooo… ever wondered what happened after Dorothy woke up back home… and saw her friends and family again? Wondered what happened to that tornado and what happened back in Oz in the weeks and months to come? Well, if you are Wizard of Oz fan and like to “continue the story” her is a quirky little sequal to the original – Legends of Oz, Dorothy Returns.
We are at a stage in my kids’ movie watching “career”, where the do enjoy pretty much any animation. My son (6) in particularly enjoyed the excitement of the story (oh no, what will happen when the wicked jester tries to take over Oz), whilst the four year old, wasn’t too impressed by the scary bits – she tends to be like that though – second time round, she will enjoy the movie much more. We loved the quirky characters (particularly the Owl and Marshal Mallow).
What did I think? Well.. I thought it was “ok”. We enjoyed it, there are some great puns, and as always the animation is good. However, the storyline, seemed a little forced, and I wouldn’t rush out to see it. The kids loved it though and want to watch it again and SOON!
