So I has to wait 24 hours while everyone other Oz fan watches it, then cheers or complains about the film.
Now, if you recall, in the 1939 MGM Wizard of Oz film, Dorothy is transported to Oz by way of tornado, which rips up her house and deposits it, Dorothy (and her little dog too!) into Oz.
Of course, they end up in Munchkin City, sitting right on top of the Wicked Witch of the East. Not a good day to be a Wicked Witch in Oz, wouldn't you say? I guess she was just another victim of the housing market crash! Groan....
So now, Disney's film, Oz the Great and Powerful also uses a tornado as a means of transport into Oz. I sense a kind of theme here...
Now, another interesting thought for me is whether or not the night sky will be shown during the film. I'm also an astronomer with a new comet to look at tonight (Comet Pann-Starrs; my 85th comet) and I'm reminded of Shadow Demon of Oz 2010 (my 2nd book), which starts out with a large comet that so happens to play a pivotal role in the story.
Oh well, in about 48 hours or so, I'll know, won't I?
