133 - Return To Oz (with Danny Morgan)
What a week it's been. Riots at the US Capitol, Trump impeached for a second time, COVID rampaging unchecked across the globe and NOW we are here to ruin your childhoods and a beloved children's favourite (which is actually pure nightmare fuel). It's EPISODE 133
This week, we are absolutely delighted to be joined by the writer and star of DOUBLE DATE...
It's DANNY MORGAN!
The film? Return To Oz!
Hailing from the hazy, crazy halcyon days of 1985, Disney and director Walter Murch got together and made a sequel (of sorts) to 1939's classic THE WIZARD OF OZ and, on the surface at least, this should've been a gimme. A technicolor wonderland filed with fun, vibrant characters, lighthearted musical numbers and musings on the nature of courage, love, intelligence and friendship.
Instead, what we got is a nihilistic, bleak view of a war-ravaged Oz, filled with nightmarish imagery and scenes to haunt your dreams.
As you can imagine, it didn't do great...
The synopsis is as follows:
Dorothy discovers she is back in the land of Oz, and finds the yellow brick road is now a pile of rubble, and the Emerald City is in ruins.
Discovering that the magical land is now under the control of an evil empire, she sets off to rescue the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion with the help of her new friends.
