Coming Soon to Boomerang Dorothy & the Wizard of Oz

Official Trailer

Since Warner Brothers owns the copyright to the 1939 film, this series acts as a sequel to it with the inclusion of the Ruby Slippers.

The series premiered in Austraila on June 26th 2017 as the first section of the first episode was released digitally in the US for the Boomerang app. That section is currently free and does not require a subscription. This first episode delves into the story without much pretense except that Dorothy went back to Oz and became a princess. A further episode might show her meeting Ozma for the first time and how Ozma ascended the throne (The Marvelous Land of Oz).

For non-subcribers, the series has also been released to DVD.

Description

(from Animation World Network )


The series is based on the classic L. Frank Baum book series, and is set soon after Dorothy and her friends have defeated the Wicked Witch of the West. Following the original story, Queen Ozma has appointed Dorothy the Princess of Emerald City and, practically born for the role, Dorothy tackles her royal duties with enthusiasm, bravery and farm girl feistiness.

But it’s also a whole lot of responsibility, because Oz is pretty chaotic. There are Witches, Wizards, Munchkins, Flying Monkeys and a whole menagerie of mystical creatures. More often than not, magic falls into the wrong hands and that’s where Dorothy comes in. As Princess of Emerald City, Dorothy feels responsible to rein in the chaos. She loves to track down whichever magical person, place or thing is causing mischief in Oz and put a stop to it.

    • Jess Harnall provided the voice of a singer in Lion of Oz and has done many voices for Walt Disney Pictures
    •  Kari Wahlgren played the voice for Tiger Lily from Peter Pan in the video game Code Name: S.T.E.A.M. which features Oz characters.
  • Tin Man operates more like a mechanical machine or a robot then his film counterpart.
  • The Ruby Slippers are shown to have various powers including flight.

  • This is the first sequel adaption to the 1939 film to have Dorothy portrayed as a small girl instead of imitating Judy Garland's performance while her three friends are still imitations of Ray Bolger (Scarecrow), Jack Haley (Tin Man), and Bert Lahr (Lion).
