When Return to Oz hit theaters on June 21, 1985, parents took their kids to see it and probably expected the Judy Garland-esque merriment of the original Wizard of Oz. Although this sequel offered audiences plenty of fantasy, it didn't shy away from the darker bits of Oz lore, and more than a few young viewers had trouble sleeping at night.

Calling all Dorothy hopefuls! Here's your chance to star in NBC's next musical adaptation, The Wiz Live!
The network announced last month that it would be holding an open casting call for the lead role in the much-anticipated adaptation of the 1975 Broadway hit, and auditions begin this Saturday at Telsey + Co in Midtown Manhattan at 10 a.m., with sign-in starting at 9 a.m.
Since the May 11 announcement that Stephanie Mills, who played Dorothy in the original Broadway cast, has been cast as Auntie Em in NBC's version, theater buffs have wondered why producers are looking for a complete unknown to take on the main role.

If you've ever wondered what happened to Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones hat from Raiders of the Lost Ark, Henry Cavill's Superman cape from Man of Steel or Judy Garland's ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz, the answer is that they're all actually in the same place.

With the click of her heels – all three times – Dorothy secured her rightful place in our hearts forever.
Just as there is no place like home, there is no movie quite like The Wizard of Oz, which has inspired generations of movie watchers to skip down the yellow brick road since its 1939 release.
That's right: It's been 75 years since the world was introduced to Dorothy (a doe-eyed Judy Garland) and the gang (the Scarecrow, Tin Man and Cowardly Lion) on their Technicolor journey through Oz.
As the Academy honors the cinema classic at this year's Oscars, we're still singing along to "Over the Rainbow" (which won Best Original Song of 1939) – and here's why.

It's hard to believe that it was 75 years ago when we first heard the phrase, "There's no place like home." But the beloved Wizard of Oz is celebrating its diamond anniversary this year, and the film will be recognized with a tribute at this Sunday's Oscars.
In the 75 years since the movie hit, though, a lot has changed. We have the Internet, cell phones and iPads, oh my! Plus, you know, commercial air travel, microwaves, color TV and a whole host of other inventions we're surely forgetting. So, how would access to these technologies have changed things in Oz? Well for starters, it might not have even ever happened …
