Concept Art For DOROTHY OF OZ - Toto, I've A Feeling We're Not In 2D Any More!!

Yes, the old 1939 classic is getting remade again, this time as a stereoscopic 3D animation directed by Daniel St. Pierre and produced by Bonne Radford. It's about time! :-)

Kudos to the marketing team behind the project as what I have seen so far has been first class and in abundance.

The stellar voice cast includes Martin Short, Kelsey Grammer, Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, Oliver Platt, Patrick Stewart, Megan Hilty, Hugh Dancy and Lea Michele (GLEE) as Dorothy.

Plenty of concept art has been made available - check out the Emerald City!

Here's what to expect:
"In this story, Dorothy (Lea Michele) returns to Kansas to find it devastated by the tornado that had whisked her away to the magical Land of Oz. The Home she had been so desperate to return to is no longer; the townspeople, with nowhere to turn, are packing up and moving out. However, before Dorothy can even begin to react to or resist this change, she is transported back to Oz by equally magical methods as her first trip. Oz is in trouble, and the people there need her help: Dorothy's old friends- the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) and Cowardly Lion (James Belushi) - have disappeared and the land is in a state of decay. As Dorothy journeys to find her friends, she encounters a number of new companions and problems, including a man of marshmallows (Hugh Dancy) who can't think for himself, a china doll princess (Megan Hilty) whose bossiness is a cover for her fragility, and a tugboat (Patrick Stewart) with as many personalities as he has pieces. Dorothy must help this odd group band together against a wicked new villain - a Jester (Martin Short!) who thinks all of Oz should be under his control."

I LOVE the casting of Martin Short in this thing. He can really belt out a tune. Seriously. I'm not kidding. Trust me.

DOROTHY OF OZ is slated for release on April 1, 2012.
