SAY GOODBYE TO KANSAS
merald City is described as a modern and dark reimagining of the
classic tale of Oz. Swept up into the eye of a tornado, 20 year old
and her K9
police dog are transported to another world — a
mystical land in great peril, where an all powerful Wizard
magic and rules over a mystical land of competing
kingdoms, lethal warriors, dark magic and a bloody battle for supremacy!
This is the fabled Land of Oz
in a way you’ve never seen before — where
lethal warriors roam, wicked witches plot in the shadows and a young
girl from Kansas
becomes the headstrong hero who holds the fate of their
world in her hands.
TARSEM'S STELLAR CAST
reated by Matthew Arnold
, the series sees young Adria Arjona
playing the grown up Dorothy Gale, Oliver Jackson Cohen
is Lucas, the Scarecrow and also her love interest, he is handsome, mysterious
and quick witted. Dorothy finds him, beaten, bloodied, and moaning on a post outside the ruins of his village. The sole survivor of what appears to gave been a mass crucifixion, he remembers nothing of his past, not
even his name. He joins Dorothy on her journey to the EMERALD CITY
, and as they survive challenge after challenge, he proves his loyalty to the brave but bewildered newcomer.
is a rather dramatic new Wicked Witch of the East with a rather glitzy fashion taste. Gorgeous Joely Richardson
is the Good Witch Glinda, while Vincent D'Onofrio
is the big Wizard
himself, the enigmatic leader of Emerald City. A man of science in a world of magic, he rules through inspiration, fear and a tenuous accord with the grand witches!
he Wicked Witch of the West is played by Ana Ularu
, she is a force of nature who has entered an unholy alliance with the Wizard. Corrupt and languorously seductive, she is a creature of perverse humour and
unsavoury appetites. She lives in a lavishly appointed brothel where she is the madam of sorts. When confronted with the news of the First Sign that foretells the coming of the Beast, she’s clearly deeply affected by the portent’s significance…and what it means for her.
Mido Hamada is brave warrior Eamonn, Stefanie Martini, whom we mentioned only yesterday, is lovely Lady Ev, while Jordan Loughran is Tip, and Gerran Howell is Jack, brave, adventurous and perpetually positive!
