Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return

Many have tried and failed to properly adapt the fantasy novels of L. Frank Baum (other than The Wizard of Oz., that is). This chintzy CGI cartoon avoids the problem by simply using one of the books written by Baum's great grandson Roger S. Baum. It comes to us from a virtually unknown animation studio in Mumbai and features the voice talents of Lea Michele, Kelsey Grammer, Dan Aykroyd, James Belushi and Martin Short. In it Dorothy is called back to Oz to help rescue the Emerald City from an evil jester. 88 minutes PG.
