You probably thought that once Dorothy was back in Kansas, her adventures were over, but that is not the case in Legends of Dorothy's Return. In this new rendition, of the old classic, Dorothy wakes up in post-tornado Kansas, only to suddenly find herself suddenly back in OZ. She once again must rescue her friend, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Man, and Glenda from a new Villain. This Parental Guide to the movies thinks that this movie is a great trip down the Yellow Brick Road for the entire family, but just like the original, some parts might be too scary for the young ones….I still have nightmares about the flying monkeys from the first one.

The wicked witch may be dead, but now Dorothy must face the Jester. This Jester is anything but funny. Oz is falling apart and Dorothy has been called back to save it. On this adventure Dorothy meets some new friends including Wiser the Owl, Marshal Mallow, China Princess, and Tugg the Tugboat. The film is magical and colorful, no black and white colorized versions this time. The artwork is stunning throughout, creating a vibrant Oz that is delightful.

This movie was made for the little ones in mind, but does have its share of name calling, but nothing too explicit. There is one scene where an owl falls out of a tree and has bark lodged in an unmentionable place. The wise owl alludes to it, but it is not directly named or seen on the screen. There is one scene where it suggests that sugar is like a drug. Perhaps the worst reference is when the jester says several times that he wants to kill a young girl who killed his sister. Of course he is talking about Dorothy when she killed the witch in the first version. The Jester then suggests that the wicked witch of the first movie is his sister.
