My thoughts:
What a great back story!!! I had heard of the movie, but hadn't seen many previews. I knew Mila Kunis was one of the characters, but I had NO CLUE she would turn into the Wicked Witch of the West!! She played the villan perfectly! It was a really good movie, the kids really enjoyed it. Our viewing included 2 year old twins, a 12 year old, 15 year old & 4 adults. One of the twins was so entranced with it, he barely took his eyes off the tv.
Recommended for everyone! There are a few spots that could possibly scare small children, but overall it's a great story and really explains how everything in the Wizard of Oz came to be!
