When the Wicked Witch of the West shows up in Times Square, Dorothy must find the inner courage to stop her.It has what can best be described as a rather curious distribution history.

However, a director's cut - retitled Dorothy and the Witches of Oz - was slated for theatrical release in the US on February 17th 2012. This newer version is an overall shorter movie with new scenes and about 90% of the special effects completely redone.
