A documentary about the making of the unofficial 1985 sequel to the iconic movie version of The Wizard of Oz.
"In the summer of 1985, a movie called Return To Oz came and went. Made by Disney, with the producer of Star Wars, the design team of The Dark Crystal and Labyrinth, and marketed as a sequel to one of the most beloved films in history...it was a flop. It's new look, strange characters, and disturbing/somber tone seemed to alienate audiences. Many saw it as a byproduct of the unstable leadership at The Walt Disney Company of the time.
Over the years, Return To Oz began to build a cult following."
FAIR WARNING: Production values are a tad... rough.
