...gotta get down on Friday! That song never gets old. Anyhoo...
First of all, Dorothy and the Witches of Oz is returning to Louisville, Kentucky tomorrow night for a special screening during the Fright Night Film Festival at the Galt House Hotel. Sean Astin, Eliza Swenson, Barry Ratcliffe, Al Snow, Leigh Scott, and Noel Thurman are all set to attend the screening at 7:45pm with a Q/A to follow. Saturday admission to the festival is $25.

There will also be a screening of the movie at Winkie-Con (in Pacific Grove, California) this year! The screening will take place on July 28th at 3:15pm. Free movie posters will be available to those attending the screening of the film.
About a week ago, an Italian teaser poster for Disney's Oz, the Great and Powerful started circulating around the internet. You can see that here. It's likely that a trailer of some sort will be shown at the Walt Disney Pictures panel at Comic-Con in San Diego next month. Disney has been super quiet about the movie, so hopefully the marketing campaign will kick into gear soon and we'll get a taste of what the movie is like.
The third issue of the Dorothy of Oz comic series from IDW has been delayed for unknown reasons. It was originally scheduled to hit shelves on June 20th, and was later moved to June 27th. Not sure why that didn't happen.
The crew behind L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has been making a lot of progress over the past month or so. You can catch up with the latest on the movie, by checking out the director's blog.
That's all for right now... until next week!
