For over half a century film producers have attempted to make a squeal to the "Wizard of Oz", worthy of the original. I can safely say, "This isn't it." Elizabeth Haskens (Jordan Van Vranken) is in an orphanage and believes she is Dorothy Gale. Never mind the time line that even a two year old might notice.

She is visited by The Scarecrow (Jermel Nakia) and Tin Woodman (Orien Richman). At this point the bulk of the movie is a flashback of their journey from Oz to Jersey, to Kansas. The make up and acting were bad. The limited special effects were not as good as those 50 years ago. This film was a pathetic clash of Asylum and Hallmark.

This film is designed for the young and not one adults will want to sit through.

This story is about an abandoned little girl who finds security in believing that she is Dorothy Gale. She lives in a large group home run with kind and loving care, where she's been sent after the deaths of her aunt and uncle. There are three converging stories - Dorothy's, a scruffy homeless dog, and the arrival from Oz of the Tin Woodsman and the Scarecrow. Presumably the dog is real; the Tin Woodsman and the Scarecrow, delightful creatures, are perhaps figments of Dorothy's imagination. The Ozians are gentle and thoughtful, and they help Dorothy to accept the reality of her life before returning to Oz.
This is a charming story. There are delightful side characters, particularly the woman who runs the animal shelter. I loved the costumes for the Tin Woodsman and the Scarecrow, their voices and especially the way they moved.

What an extremely bizarre and awful movie. After the Wizard is *nothing* like the classic Wizard of Oz. You should know that right away. There's no grand adventure, no yellow brick road, no flying monkeys, no wicked witch, etc. There's a tornado though- an *extremely* poor tornado at the very end where it's completely obvious it's not really there and that the people fleeing from a school building are looking at nothing in the distance. The tornado's obviously just on a screen in the background and we're supposed to believe it's really behind them causing a threat, lol.

Jordan Van Vranken (Dorothy) is a student at an orphanage that knows the land of Oz is in trouble and initially appears to be imagining the Tin Man and Scarecrow's appearance, but they're actually real. They just disappear whenever teachers or adults are around to make it look like Jordan has an overactive imagination. However the Tin Man and Scarecrow are actually out there riding around in a hot air balloon visiting places such as school children in New Jersey, the Statue of Liberty, the dog pound in their attempt to find Toto, and taking bus rides all the while desperately wanting to know where Kansas is (and getting several history and geography lessons along the way).

I'm not kidding about any of this. This all might sound really silly, but from the point of view of a child this story might make more sense (or seem less ridiculous). For some reason the Tin Man looks like baseball player Chase Utley and the Scarecrow is an African American. I just find this funny because this isn't at all what the original characters look like from the Wizard of Oz movie.

I've never been a fan of the original Wizard Of Oz & I think I've only liked 1 or 2 of the remakes.I really didn't know what to expect of this version but I was surprised that I truly liked it.It was something different.I enjoyed watching the journey the Scarecrow & Tinman took on their way to find Dorothy & the people they met along the way.I especially liked the Scarecrow & Tin Man's costumes.I thought they looked pretty cool.My only problem with the movie was that the girl thought she was Dorothy & wanted everybody to call her that but her actual name was Elizabeth.It just made it seem like she had.... problems.Why couldn't her name just be Dorothy? I can imagine not everybody will like this movie but I think for a low budget movie, they did a GREAT job

After the Wizard is pretty unusual, even for an Oz movie. The movie follows an orphan, Elizabeth Haskens, who constantly refers to herself as Dorothy and talks about Oz. Everyone at the orphanage is worried about her and they fear that she is losing touch with reality. Suddenly, the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman show up while Dorothy is reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in the library, and it's a happy reunion...

The rest of the movie is kind of told out of order. We find out how the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman got to Kansas and why. Since the Wizard left Oz, everyone there has stopped caring and are basically greedy... which is similar to what's going on in our world apparently. The Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the Lion all decide upon seeking out Dorothy's help. But, there's just one problem. They have no idea where she is! The Scarecrow and Tin Woodman take a hot air balloon ride to the United States, and travel to Kansas so they can find Dorothy at last.

There are some pacing problems and bits of poorly-written dialogue. The acting was impressive for an independent film; the standouts being Helen Richman as Mrs. Murphy, Loren Lester as Dr. Edwards, and Peter Mark Richman as Charles Samuel Williams.

The movie has a couple of visual effects-heavy sequences that weren't executed all that well, but considering the budget, these can easily be forgiven. My main problem with the movie was the ending. I don't want to get into too much detail or spoil anything, but I don't feel like the ending resolved some of the problems that were presented.

Jordan Van Vranken does an excellent job in her role as Elizabeth, and I'm looking forward to seeing her continue to improve in her career.
