Kansas, alla vigilia dell’anno 1900. Dorothy Gale, reduce dal viaggio a Oz, non si e’ piu’ ripresa. Fuggita dalla clinica dove era stata ricoverata dagli zii e caduta in un fiume, ritorna nel magico paese, in compagnia di un’amichetta e di una gallina, ma le cose sono cambiate. In peggio.
Dorothy (a 10-year-old Fairuza Balk in her debut) is back in Kansas, where Aunt Em (Piper Laurie) is at the end of her rope: her niece is not sleeping and going on about a place called Oz. Therapy may be the answer, but luckily the scary clinic goes dark before Dorothy can be cured . She wakes up in the land of Oz, now in tatters, and searches for its king, the Scarecrow. A new set of friends, including a tin soldier, a talking chicken, and a pumpkin man, help her against new villains, including Princess Mombi (Jean Marsh)–complete with a set of detachable heads–and the evil Nome King (Nicol Williamson with a great assist from Will Vinton’s Claymation).
