Deborah Lurie has signed on to score the upcoming animated 3D musical Dorothy of Oz. The movie’s story is an update on The Wizard of Oz and centers on Dorothy Gale who is returning to a tornado-devastated Kansas and then being transported back to Oz to help her friend. The movie’s voice cast includes Lea Michele, Jim Belushi, Dan Akroyd, Kelsey Grammer, Oliver Platt, Martin Short, Megan Hilty and Hugh Dancy. Dorothy of Oz is directed by Dan St. Pierre (Everyone’s Hero). While Lurie is writing the score, the film’s songs are written by Bryan Adams, Tift Merritt and Jim Vallance. Jim Dooley is providing additional songs and lyrics. The film is set for a spring 2012 release. To find out more about Dorothy of Oz, visit the official movie webpage.
