Our family enjoys family movie nights, so I'm always on the lookout for good movies everyone will enjoy. One of our faves is The Wizard of Oz, so I was very excited to learn more about a new movie coming to theaters May 9th...Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return.

Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return is a 3D-animated musical based on the adventure books by Roger Stanton Baum, the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum. A continuation of one of the world’s most popular and beloved fairy tales, Legends of Oz finds Dorothy (Lea Michele) waking to post-tornado Kansas, only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) from a devious new villain, the Jester (Martin Short). Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), China Princess (Megan Hilty) and Tugg the tugboat (Patrick Stewart) join Dorothy on her latest magical journey through the colorful landscape of Oz to restore order and happiness to Emerald City. Set to the tunes of Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams, Legends of Oz marks a charming, family-friendly return to the Oz franchise.

If this sounds like a movie you and your family would enjoy as well, I'd recommend checking it out when it hits theaters next month! You may also be interested in learning more about the Legends of Oz Express Tour too! Join Dorothy and friends for a day of free family fun with activities, games, character meet & greets, and story time when the Legends of Oz Express comes to a town near you.
