It seems like another sequel/spin-off that many may not have wanted. Summertime Entertainment has released the first teaser trailer for their upcoming 3D animated Frank L. Baum adaptation, Dorothy of Oz. Watch it in the embedded video right after the break.
With this trailer, I have no comment at all. As far as I am concerned, Walt Disney's Oz: The Great and Powerful looks more intriguing than this one. The only thing I am buying this movie is the fact that the songs are written by Bryan Adams.
The plot involves:
Dorothy Gale (voiced by Lea Michele) returns to Kansas to find it devastated. Dorothy then finds a new way to get back to the Land of Oz, only to discover that her old friends the Scarecrow (voiced by Dan Aykroyd), Tin Man (voiced by Kelsey Grammer), Cowardly Lion (voiced by James Belushi) and the entire Land of Oz, are all in grave danger. On Dorothy's new journey through Oz, she meets new friends like a marshmallow man named Marshall Mallow (voiced by Hugh Dancy), a china doll princess (voiced by Megan Hilty), and a tugboat named Tugg (voiced by Patrick Stewart). With the help of her new friends, they band together against a wicked Jester (voiced by Martin Short) who wants to control Oz.
The film features the voices of Lea Michele, Martin Short, Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Megan Hilty, Hugh Dancy, Oliver Platt, Patrick Stewart and Bernadette Peters. No confirmed release dates yet.
