What happened after Dorothy clicked her ruby slippers home? Apparently everything went straight to hell in Oz. So it's back to the Emerald City with her! Take a look at the concept art behind the new animated Dorothy Of Oz.

Based on the novel by Frank Baum's great-grandson, Roger S. Baum, Dorothy of Oz takes place after Dorothy Gale wakes up. Sadly she isn't meant to stay long in Kansas, because Oz wants her back to help save the yellow brick road. While not all animated movies have to be Disney or Pixar to pull at our heartstrings, we're still not sure what to make of this film. Here's the official synopsis:

In the story, Dorothy returns to Kansas to find it devastated by the tornado that had whisked her away to the magical Land of Oz. The home she had been so desperate to return to is no longer; the townspeople, with nowhere to turn, are packing up and moving out. However, before Dorothy can even begin to react to or resist this change, she is transported back to Oz by equally magical methods as her first trip. Oz is in trouble, and the people there need her help: Dorothy's old friends – the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion – have disappeared and the land is in a state of decay. As Dorothy journeys to find her friends, she encounters a number of new companions and problems, including a man made of marshmallows who can't think for himself, a china doll princess whose bossiness is a cover for her fragility, and a tugboat with as many personalities as he has pieces. Dorothy must help this odd group band together against a wicked new villian – a Jester who thinks all of Oz should be under his own control.

How will Dorothy and her new companions work together in a seemingly disastrous time to restore Oz to the place we all know and love? You've waited over 70 years to find out what happens the very next day... so check back often as more of the new "Dorothy of Oz" adventure is revealed


Being huge fans of the Wheelers in Return to Oz, it's hard to think of any other type of Oz sequel. But we're open to anything with Sir Patrick Stewart playing a tug boat, or a tree — actually we're 100% not sure what he is. And, of course Lea Michele from Glee can do no wrong in our eyes. So we'll just have to wait until actual footage of the animation is released. [Dorothy Of Oz via Daemon's Movies]
