Lea Michele is voicing the animated version of Dorothy of Oz. She is so perfectly cast! She is so cute and the Wizard of Oz is such a classic movie, I love that its being animated. Can’t wait to see or hear Lea!!!
According to ET,
“Glee” star Lea Michele is following the yellow brick road to an all-new ‘Oz’ adventure, and we have a sneak peek at the upcoming CGI-animated musical ‘Dorothy of Oz’!
“It’s just really nice to get to step into a different world for a little while,” says Lea. “I thoroughly enjoy being at William McKinley High School Monday through Friday at ‘Glee,’ but it’s been really great to step into another world and play another character for a little while. It only makes the job that I do every day even more enjoyable.”
Taking place where the original 1939 film left off, Dorothy (Michele) wakes up back in Kansas after the tornado has devastated her community. She finds a new means to transport back to Oz, only to discover that her three friends â€“ Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), Lion (Jim Belushi) and Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer) â€“ have disappeared. It turns out a new villain, The Jester (Martin Short), is trying to take control of Oz, and Dorothy must band together new and old friends to defeat him.
