Dorothy of Oz Teaser Trailer
A teaser trailer for Dorothy of Oz, the animated film adaptation of Roger S. Baum’s novel of the same name, has been released.
Unlike Sam Raimi’s Oz: The Great and Powerful, which deals with how Oz becomes the Wizard of Oz, Dorothy of Oz has Dorothy (Lea Michele) returning to Kansas only to find it devastated by the tornado that had whisked her away to Oz. But shortly after arriving, she is magically transported back to Oz. She finds out that Oz is in trouble and the people there need her help. Dorothy’s old friends have disappeared and Oz is in a state of decay. As she journeys to find her friends, she encounters a number of new companions (and lots of problems).
Most of the trailer — narrated by Patrick Stewart — is dedicated to showing off the film’s bright and colorful visuals, while concluding with a short audio clip of Michele singing.
The cast includes Dan Aykroyd, Hugh Dancy, James Belushi, Bernadette Peters, Kelsey Grammer, Brian Blessed, Martin Short, Megan Hilty, Oliver Platt, and Patrick Stewart. The film is co-directed by Will Finn and Dan St. Pierre.
Dorothy of Oz is still without an official release date, but it should be premiering around 2013.
