Coming Attraction: Legends of Oz Express Tour
A little bit of Oz is coming to L.A.!
To celebrate the upcoming animated film Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, Dorothy, Toto and their new friend Wiser the Owl will be touring the country to bring the magical world to kiddos.
Making their appearance at Hollywood & Highland on Sunday, April 13, Dorothy and friends will entertain families as they enjoy fun activities such as making friendship pins at the Tin Man's Friendship Club, make arts and crafts in the Scarecrow's Workshop and show their courage by performing on the Lion's "Mane" stage.
Kids can also visit "Candy County" at the Legends of Oz Express Tour, where they can hear the story that inspired the film Dorothy of Oz, written by L. Frank Baum's great-grandson, Roger Stanton Baum.
Families can also bring a book -- or books -- to donate.
The movie, which hits theaters May 9, stars Lea Michele as Dorothy, who according to press notes, wakes "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).
Sounds like fun!
