Staff Writer@shelbyN92 Lea Michele announced earlier today that the trailer for her upcoming animated film, Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return is out, "exclusively on Yahoo Movies!" The movie will be a 3D computer-animated musical, obviously based on L. Frank Baum's classic, The Wizard of Oz which is also celebrating its 75th anniversary this year. According to the film's site, Dorothy has just returned home from her first trip to Oz, but she is called back for yet another adventure. Dorothy (Lea Michele) and her dog, Toto, are transported back to the magical land by their friends the Scarecrow, the Lion and the Tin Man. Time has apparently moved much faster in Oz and finds that the Wicked Witch of the West has a brother, the Jester, who is taking over the land casting a spell of darkness over Oz and holding their leaders captive. Dorothy then tries to stop the Jester with her friends, but it isn't exactly an easy road. The Jester has planted many obstacles and "tricky detours" so that she won't succeed. New friends also join her, including Wiser the owl, Marshal Mallow, China Princess and Tugg the tugboat to help out. Dorothy appreciates the help, but knows that she is also putting them in a lot of danger. She has to decide whether she wants to continue alone or accept their help, all for the beloved city of Oz. "It's going to take as much heart, brain and courage as they can collectively muster to defeat the Jester and return order and happiness to the Emerald City." Also starring in "Oz" are: Dan Akroyd, Jim Belushi, Kelsey Grammer, Martin Short, Bernadette Peters and Megan Hilty. The movie is set to be released May 9, 2014.
