More information on 'Emerald City'

Casting is underway for NBC's dark drama series Emerald City. They have released character descriptions. It sounds like this is going to be quite dark, and will focus on social and relationship issues.

Here is a description for Dorothy:
Dorothy, a “natural beauty” with a scarred past, has “patched a life together for herself” despite her lack of self confidence. Dorothy’s “outward insecurity and lack of self-awareness hide the savior, survivor that she will discover she truly is.”

Emerald City has been given a 10 episode order, and will premiere sometime this year.

'Legends of Oz' UK Trailer

I just wanted to share this UK trailer for Legends of Oz. It's so much better than anything they showed here in the US. The great visuals and music as well as the humor (which always appeals to kids) is on full display here, and maybe with more like this people would have been more interested in it.

A new Oz feature on the horizon

The Land of Oz has recently popped up on Facebook, Twitter, and IMDB scheduled for release this year. 

It appears to be an animated movie based on The Marvelous Land of Oz, by L. Frank Baum.

Judging by posts on the movie's Facebook, it may be something created by Disney, but it's unlikely since Disney just released an Oz movie last year. 

It also seems unlikely that the movie will be released this year. There's been next to no buzz surrounding it, or even one production still, and we are halfway through this year already. Legends of Oz turning out to be such a financial disappointment probably doesn't bode well for it either. 

The film may be in final pre-production stage. Some of the cast is set, but according to the official IMDB the overall status of the film is unknown.

Hopefully we will hear some sort of official announcement soon, and won't have to wait years for another Oz movie.
