Little Dorothy Gale of Kansas, like so many girls her age, often dreams of what may lie over the rainbow. One day a tornado hits her home town and carries her away to Munchkinland - at the end of the rainbow. 

Dorothy wants to go home to Kansas but only the great Wizard of Oz can help her. Dorothy persuades three friends to accompany her on the trip to the Emerald City to see the Wizard. They are Scarecrow, who lacks a brain (he thinks), the Tin Woodman, who has no heart, and the Cowardly Lion, who would like to have some courage. The Wicked Witch of the West vows vengeance on Dorothy and does all she can to stop the friends getting to the Emerald City. But they do reach it, and manage to see the Wizard. Join Dorothy as she confronts the Wizard and even stands up to the Wicked Witch of the West in this wonderful adventure based upon one of the most popular movies of all time.
