I thought this version might be a little hokey but I must say I was pleasantly surprised. I thought they did a good job with keeping the story of the Wizard of Oz true while telling the back story to the wizard. I also really appreciated the homage to the 1939 movie, The Wizard of Oz. If you are an Oz fan this is a can’t miss, even though it isn’t a perfect film. It is a film that entertains and doesn’t cause holes in the original story.
