The movie tells the story of how carnival magician and con-man Oscar Diggs ended up in Oz and became the Wizard. Since the film takes place before the events in the 1939 Wizard of Oz, there is no Dorothy, Scarecrow, Cowardly Lion, or Tin Man, but the munchkins and flying monkeys are there, along with three witches, and several new characters.
The movie is available in several Blu-ray and DVD disc packages, including both 2D and 3D versions. For this review, I was provided the 2D Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Copy combo pack.
