We're off to see the wizard … through the magic of Scanimation. Rufus Butler Seder has done it again, turning The Wizard of Oz, one of the most beloved films of all time, into his latest full motion masterpiece.
Take a journey down the Yellow Brick Road with Dorothy, the Scarecrow, the Tinman, and the Cowardly Lion - and Toto, too! - reliving ten memorable scenes from the classic movie: from the twister that started it all, to a melting Wicked Witch of the West, to the great and powerful Oz - not to mention the ruby slippers' three heel-clicks that finally bring Dorothy back to Kansas. Dorothy was right: there's no place like home … and there's no book quite like The Wizard of Oz: A Scanimation Book.
Contains: Dorothy, the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, the Cowardly Lion, and Toto dancing down the Yellow Brick Road; Dorothy's farmhouse flying upward in a twister; Miss Gulch, on her bicycle in the tornado, transforming into a witch on a broomstick; The Lollipop Kids strutting from side to side; The Scarecrow doing a wacky dance; The Tin Man swaying from side to side; Dorothy and the Scarecrow flanking him as if to catch him; The Wicked Witch of the West waving on a sky full of flying monkeys; The Wicked Witch of the West melting; The Great and Powerful Oz-and the man behind the curtain frantically pulling levers; A close-up of Dorothy clicking her ruby slippers.
