You can’t beat the old classic stories, and Wizard of Oz brings up some great memories for me – village fetes and our estate dressing up a float and ourselves as the Emerald City and the yellow brick road.  I love the old classic film, but this month  sees the release of an animated film The Guardians of Oz.

Guardians of Oz DVD

It’s a brand new story and movie, set in the world of Oz, so you can relive the journey back there and watch your children’s excitement as they discover the magic of the city of Oz.  The film has all the favourite characters including the Lion, the Scarecrow and the Tin Man (which one was your favourite? Mine was the scarecrow).

The new film is full of colour, with the adventure told through the eyes of one of the flying monkeys.  Ozzy is kind hearted and joins forces with the good sorceress Gabby to stop the attempts from wicked witch Eveline to take over and rule their land. They work together to challenge her and hope that good overcomes evil.


The animation team is the same who created The Book of Life so expect fun for the whole family to enjoy.

If you fancy checking out the movie The Guardians of Oz dvd is available to buy and download from 13th February, with a PG certification. Get it from Amazon (affiliate link) or other usual outlets.
