Kansas has been devastated by tornadoes. Returning home to find the farm in ruins, young Dorothy is transported back to Oz, and embarks on a quest to save her old friends the Lion (Jim Belushi), the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), and the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer). Oliver Platt, Hugh Dancy, Megan Hilty, and Martin Short also contribute voices for an epic fantasy featuring music by Bryan Adams and Jim Vallance. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

      Best movie about the Land of Oz since 1939.

      This is an excellent film with splendid computer animation and a fine musical score. The characters all look very "Ozzy" and the film includes many elements that come from the original books, such as the Queen of the Fieldmice, the China Country and the China Princess. The meeting with the talking trees is a very nice touch, especially when one tree says that Dorothy stole some apples from a relative of theirs. The Jester is a worthy successor to the Wicked Witch of the West, and Marshall Mallow seems to have come right out of the imagination of L. Frank Baum, who wrote the first Oz book in 1900. "Dorothy's Return" is a modern Oz for all generations, with a sweeping story and top entertainment value. I really wish there could be another "Legends of Oz" film someday.

      Highly Overlooked Film

      After seeing many negative reviews from "critics" when this film was released in theaters in May of 2014, it was panned as a box office flop. After watching the film on Blu-ray, I have found it to be a colorful, musical, and easy family film, full of well done musical numbers and great voice performances by Lea Michele, Hugh Dancy and Megan Hilty. The song "Even Then", penned by Bryan Adams is the real jewel here and down the road (perhaps of yellow bricks), I would not be surprised if someone covers this song for radio or one of the many voice talent shows on TV. In short, I agree with those other reviewers who found it to be delightful and moving without too much over-hyped publicity. A cult classic in the making.

      Really adorable movie for kids

      Posted

      This movie is a breath of fresh air. Many so-called "kids" movies today are full of "adult" humor and (what I would consider) inappropriate content. This movie was truly kid-friendly. Accessible storyline, kid-friendly humor, beautiful animation, and lovely music made for an enjoyable time for both myself and my nieces & nephews. This is one DVD I'll never have to worry about them watching - regardless of their age. Wish Hollywood would produce more movies like this. :) Only drawback: The case the DVD came in is a bit flimsy. Would have been nice to have a stronger case, but I guess you can't have everything. lol.

      Dorothy comes back to oz and save her friends from the evil jester in emerald city. It also shows us even a little girl can make a difference I'm people's life. It shows us that even if Dorothy is a girl she stop the jester and saves her friends once again. It even shows that one little girl can stop a vicious criminal from taking away there homes. Dorothy has the power to change everything and so do we. We can make a difference if we all just believe in ourselves and never give up and always believe that there is no place like home.

      Oz is truly a wondrous place with wondrous inhabitants. This particular visit was a fun romp. Martin Short is over-the-top as The Jester/Appraiser. Out of the blue and often my 3-year-old daughter will sing the songs (or her approximation of them), especially "when the world turns upside down". I wouldn't mind seeing more of these exploring new characters and locations.

      This movie is proof that GREAT is possible in family friendly entertainment. The story continues where the original movie left off. The Characters, dialog, antics and music are superb. I was comfortable taking my young grandchildren to see it. This movie I recommend without reservation to any parent or grandparent of young children.

      I don't like even soft rock, so I was concerned by that in this kid's movie, but it has a good plot, some familiar characters, and makes a good addition to the Oz canon. Maybe someday an effort will be made to do the complete series of Oz books by L. Frank Baum! We're getting closer, I suppose.
