Return to Oz Screening!

Last week there was a screening of Return to Oz at the Aero Theater. But this screeing had a Q & A with Walter Murch & Fairuza Balk! Many fans went, and many did not know it was going on... Here is a review by an audience member...

"This screening was a very pleasant surprise, especially the discussion with the director and star. I enjoyed their insight into the process and conception. The film was very interesting and entertaining. I appreciated the inspiration from the books and did not mind that it was not a musical. I believe its shortcoming had to do with the lack of human-ness in Dorothy's new friends. The audience needs to be drawn to them and love them as much as the heroine to feel engaged. I had thought their coldness was due to the technically dominated special effects utilized to create these fantastical characters. Later, after George Lucas' name was brought into the discussion, I came to a realization that StarWars had tremendous success with two mechanical onscreen characters who were both very endearing and human-like, R2-D2 and C3PO. Little Miss Balk was a very sweet and intelligent Dorothy." - Lawrence

The screening is now over, but stay tuned for photos from that night....

Chocolate Milk

I have always loved this add from Japan. It is some sort of OZ chocolate milk. It clearly has the characters from Return to Oz to promote it. But no one seems to even remember what it was. If anyone out there knows give us a little light here in the dark. But it is a very interesting add to say the least...

25th Anniversary

Happy 25th Anniversary Return to Oz! Well I am a few days late... It was actually on June 21st.

And speaking of 25th Anniversaries, another Disney classic shares the same year ( July 24th )

The Black Cauldron

The film is based on books by Lloyd Alexander called the Prydain Chronicles. But the disney movie is based mostly on the first and second book. It is however an entirely differant story than the books. But I do recomend reading the books for anyone who likes fantasy.

Disney has actually honored this classic with a special 25th Anniversary release. It will mainly be the same as the earlier release but will finally be in full Widescreen! And they have created a new game, which really is kind of stupid. The reports say there will be a deleted scene but not the controversial scene of the Cauldron Born, but I guess an extended fairy folk scene. Another downside to this is that Disney will not be putting this on Blu-Ray, only DVD. They seem to be very very picky on what goes on Blu-Ray for some reason. The DVD will be available on September 14th.
For those of you not familiar with this movie you can view its 25th Anniversary trailer here:

Well Disney at least honored this film here's hoping ( but not holding my breath ) that Return to Oz will get the some sort of honor, even if it is just new box art. But a Blu-Ray of Return to Oz would be a dream come true. Disney sure did make some great films in 1985!

Return to Oz Review from 1985!
