With her feet firmly grounded in her ruby slippers, Dorothy tackles her royal duties with enthusiasm, bravery and farm girl feistiness. And whether it’s magic, munchkins, flying monkeys or her arch-nemesis Wilhelmina, the wicked witch-in-training and niece of the Wicked Witch of the West, Dorothy is ready to track down and put a stop to any problem that comes Oz’s way. Packed with memorable melodies and iconic Oz imagery, “Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz” is also sure to delight fans of the original books and the classic film “The Wizard of Oz.”
“Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz” is produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register (“Teen Titans Go!”) serves as executive producer with Jeff DeGrandis (“Dora the Explorer”) as producer. Voice cast includes Kari Wahlgren (“Bunnicula”) as Dorothy and Queen Ozma, Jess Harnell (“Animaniacs”) as Lion, JP Karliak (“New Looney Tunes”) as Tin Man, Bill Fagerbakke (“SpongeBob SquarePants”) as Scarecrow and Jessica DiCicco (“DC Super Hero Girls”) as Wilhelmina.
