Amazon Original Series Lost in Oz Debuts in August
This coming August 4, Amazon will be debuting a new original animated series titled “Lost in Oz” on their Amazon Prime Video service in the US and UK. The series is inspired by Frank L. Baum’s magical world and will be aimed towards kids aged 6 to 11. The Amazon Originals series will take its cue from the Amazon Orignal special Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure, which will be split into 3 separate episodes and expanded with 10 brand new ones.
We’re excited for families everywhere to experience the magic of this serialized action-adventure comedy, led by a fearless female character and featuring a diverse group of friends,” said Tara Sorensen, Head of Kids Programming at Amazon Studios. “The Lost in Oz pilot and the extended special were extremely popular with young viewers and parents alike, and the new series, poised to be the next Oz-based classic, serves up even more fun for fans.”
Lost in Oz focuses on the 12 year old Dorothy Gale as she discovers her mother’s travel journal at the floorboards of their Kansas home. Upon opening the journal, a tornado is triggered and manages to whisk away her house from its foundation, transporting both Dorothy and her dog Toto to the magical land of Emerald City. In order to get back home, Dorothy must acquire every element on Oz’s periodic table of magic and help the city weather the worst magic drought in eons. Along the way, Dorothy and Toto meet unlikely allies in West, Ojo, Reigh the Lion, Scarecrow, and Glinda the Good, who are each eager to help, but struggling with their own problems.
