Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return Reviews
Honestly, all I can say about that from having seen it now is: it's hard to see how it cost as much as they say it did (unless there was one item that cost a lot and ate into the budget of everything else), and the reason it tanked and people lost their 401(k) is not because of some outside conspiracy, it's because the investment was risky, handled in a dodgy fashion and the film was... really not particularly good, but also not awful enough to be a cult classic either. Bad films might do well pretty often, but bad animated ones only do well if they're absolutely atrocious.
Just stick to the insane production backstory instead, it's far more entertaining than this below-average cheesefest.
Dorothy wakes up in her house fresh off the legendary tale from the Wizard of Oz. Her house has been destroyed and some realeastate developers quickly move in to force her family out of the area. Dorothy stands by her family until she is contacted by Oz and asked to return and save them. Dorothy may need to save her world and Oz.

Will Finn (Home on the Range) and Daniel St. Pierre (Everyone's Hero) collaborate to deliver Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return. The storyline for this picture is just okay and only so interesting; however, the portrayal of some of the legendary characters was fun and the animation style was very well done. The voices fit the characters well.

I was excited to see this with my daughter when the trailers first aired when it was in theatres; however, we just recently got around to watching it off Netflix. It was very average and a bit disappointing. It reminded me of Hoodwinked in a way (from a quality and feel standpoint). This is worth watching once with your child but may not be worth adding to your DVD collection.
