Patrick Stewart narrates psychedelic new Dorothy of Oz trailer

Like your Oz odyssey with 3D flying monkeys and snappy show tunes? Well here's a teaser for the first Oz movie out of the gate, with Captain Picard himself inviting you aboard.

Summertime Entertainment produced this family-friendly, CGI-animated musical centering on Dorothy's return trip to the weird and wonderful Land of Oz. The inspired but lower-budget entry into the upcoming onslaught of Oz projects appears to be an imaginative take on the L. Frank Baum material with a certain kiddie appeal.

Here's the official synopsis:

Dorothy returns to Kansas to find it devastated by the tornado that had whisked her away to Oz. Shortly after arriving, Dorothy is magically transported back to Oz. Her old friends, the Scarecrow,the Tin Man and the formerly Cowardly Lion, have disappeared, and Oz is in a state of decay. As Dorothy journeys to find her friends, she encounters new companions, including a man made of marshmallows, a china doll princess and a tugboat with as many personalities as he has pieces. Dorothy must help this odd group band together against a wicked Jester who thinks all of Oz should be under his control.

The voice cast includes Dan Aykroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Patrick Stewart, James Belushi, Bernadette Peters, Hugh Dancy, Megan Hilty and Oliver Platt. Dorothy of Oz 3D has no release date but should appear somewhere over the rainbow in 2013.
