Adaptation #87: Dorothy’s Legendary Return

Adaptation Podcast

header087Dorin and Kendyl sit down to talk about the new film Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return and the book Dorothy of Oz by Roger S. Baum that it is based on. Both tellings follow Dorothy as she returns to Oz to save her friends from the tricks of the evil Jester. The two hosts have a few issues with the film, but enjoyed watching it and discuss whether Legends of Oz should become a series that adapts other Oz adventures.

header084 This time around Dorin, Jenn and Kendyl discuss the film Sabotage in which a team of DEA agents is quickly being eliminated one by one, loosely based on Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None .
