Dorothy Of Oz Teaser Poster

Hollywood has straw for brains and there’s more than one Wizard of Oz themed project working it’s way through town right now. It looks like the first out of the gate will be Summertime Entertainment’s Dorothy of Oz. This one’s actually a 3D animated musical, with Lea Michele, Martin Short, Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Megan Hilty, Hugh Dancy, Oliver Platt and Patrick Stewart providing voices.

Here’s your first look at the first, very animated Dorothy of Oz poster:

The really great news about this project is that it’s not a Wizard of Oz redo, more of a sequel. That’s been tried before of course, with Return to Oz, but this is off on something completely different from that darkly toned revisiting. Here’s the Dorothy of Oz official plot synopsis:

The plot begins as Dorothy returns to Kansas to find it devastated by the tornado that sent her to Oz. Before she can react to the destruction of her home, she is transported back to Oz, where her three friends (Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man) have disappeared. She meets a charming man made of marshmallows who can’t quite think for himself, a tiny china doll princess whose bossiness is a cover for her fragility, and a tugboat with as many personalities as he has pieces. Dorothy must help this group band together against the Jester, a wicked new villain who believes that all of Oz should be under his control.
