It seems like we’ve been talking about the film forever, but finally we have news on the UK release of Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return (previously titled Dorothy of Oz), the animated musical adventure which is a continuation of one of the world’s most popular and well loved stories… and which comes to the UK courtesy of our friends at Signature Entertainment in May.

Set for a nationwide release exclusively in Vue Cinemas from 23rd May 2014, Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return finds Dorothy Gale (Lea Michelle) waking up to a devastated post-tornado Kansas and is soon rushed back to Oz to save her old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer), the Cowardly Lion (Jim Belushi), Glinda the Good Witch (Bernadette Peters) and the entire Land of Oz from the devious brother of the Wicked Witch of the West – The Jester (Martin Short).

With Dorothy as their only hope to restore order and happiness to Emerald City, she must embark on another adventure meeting a host of new friends, Wiser the Owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), Tugg the Treeboat (Patrick Stewart) and China Doll Princess (Megan Hilty) to help her along the way.

Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return is co-directed by Will Finn (Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid), Daniel St. Pierre (The Lion King, Shark Tale, Tarzan) and features songs by Academy Award nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams.
