CONTEST: Show us your Child's Vision of the Land of OZ

Submit a Drawing by your Child
for a chance to win
Bluray-DVD-Digital Download Prize Pack

Munchkins, Flying Monkeys, Talking Scarecrows, and Wicked Witches were just a few elements that captured my imagination as a child when watching the 1939 classic movie the Wizard of Oz.  I remember wondering in my youth what other fantastic creatures and characters might also live in that magical land that never made it onto the silver screen. My grandmother's fridge was covered with pictures filled with my images of the wonderful land of Oz and as class writing projects I submitted to teachers a few essays that were my take at sequels to the story originally crafted in L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel. 

This year there is a new motion picture that has been released featuring the land of OZ to inspire a new generation of fans. LEGENDS OF OZ: DOROTHY'S RETURN hit movie theaters this spring and will be released for home video on August 26, 2014.  Kids of all ages will love this musical animated journey back to the magical world of Oz that features a number of recognizable voices including Lea Michele from TV's "Glee," comedian Dan Akroyd, Martin Short the voice of PBS Kids' "Cat in the Hat,"  Patrick Stewart aka Captain Picard from "Star Trek: The Next Generation,"Kelsey Grammar of "Fraser" fame, and many more talented actors and actresses.  The  film's plot involves a devious new villain, the Jester, who rules over Oz.  Dorthy must return from Kansas to rescue her old friends: the Lion, the Scarecrow, and the Tin Man.  Set to some great songs from Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams and full of delightful new characters this animated return to Oz that is sure to become a family-favorite movie.
