Watch The Trailer For LEGENDS OF OZ Before Tomorrow's 75th Anniversary Tribute At The Oscars

Right on time for tomorrow's 75th anniversary celebration of The Wizard of Oz at the Academy Awards comes the trailer for Legends of Oz, the new animated 3D musical inspired by the classic story of Oz. The new film, which is scheduled to hit theaters May 9th, is said to be a twist on the original film as it reunites the memorable characters. 

More on the film from the press release:

Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return is a 3D-animated musical based on the adventure books by Roger Stanton Baum, the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum. A continuation of one of the world’s most popular and beloved fairy tales, Legends of Oz finds Dorothy (Lea Michele) waking to post-tornado Kansas, only to be whisked back to Oz to try to save her old friends the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) from a devious new villain, the Jester (Martin Short). Wiser the owl (Oliver Platt), Marshal Mallow (Hugh Dancy), China Princess (Megan Hilty) and Tugg the tugboat (Patrick Stewart) join Dorothy on her latest magical journey through the colorful landscape of Oz to restore order and happiness to Emerald City. Set to the tunes of Academy Award-nominated singer/songwriter Bryan Adams, Legends of Oz marks a charming, family-friendly return to the Oz franchise.

Legends of Oz was directed by Will Finn and Dan St. Pierre, with a screenplay by Adam Balsam and Randi Barnes. Watch the trailer:
