'''Dorothy of Oz''' is a 2014 CG musical film based on Roger S. Baum's[[note]] L. Frank's great-grandson[[/note]] book of the same name. It's also the latest in a long line of attempts to make another Oz film that can survive in the shadow of the [[Film/TheWizardOfOz 1939]] [[ToughActToFollow classic]]. Instead of going down the DarkerAndEdgier route - [[Film/ReturnToOz we know how well that turned out]] - ''Dorothy'' seems to be trying to recreate the cheerful tone of its famous predecessor, if its concept art is [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=379594797667&set=a.379594717667.159752.207510877667&type=1&theater anything]] [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=388238677667&set=a.379594717667.159752.207510877667&type=1&theater to]] [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=422040412667&set=a.379594717667.159752.207510877667&type=1&theater go]] [[http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=388238677667&set=a.379594717667.159752.207510877667&type=1&theater by.]]

'''The official synopsis:'''

There is trouble in Oz and Dorothy is needed! With Glindaís help, she and Toto return to Oz. Joined by her old friends the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, the Lion as well as exciting new characters, Dorothy sets out on a perilous journey to stop the crafty Jester from using the power of the Wicked Witch of the Westís wand to turn the people of Oz into puppets. That seems to be the least of Dorothyís problems as her travels lead her straight into a treacherous maze, a cave full of very hungry dragons and an evil spell that could destroy the Yellow Brick Road. Dorothy has the daunting knowledge that it is up to her to stop Jesterís terrible plan. Audiences will welcome the return of the old Oz favorites and will love meeting new friends like Tugg a gruff talking boat and Wiser an owl with an unlucky attraction to molasses.

ItMakesSenseInContext. Probably. A prequel graphic novel to this film is available from IDW Publishing.

* DevelopmentHell: The release date keeps getting pushed back. ''Possibly'' so as to capitalize on ''Film/OzTheGreatAndPowerful''.
