Amazon Studios to Debut Original Kids Special "Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure"

On Friday, December 2, Amazon Original Kids Special Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure is set to premiere on Prime Video in the US and UK. Lost in Oz is an animated, action-adventure comedy which was part of Amazon Studios' 2015 summer pilot season and received 4.9 out of 5-stars by customers, with 91% of the reviews being 5-stars. This special includes the original pilot plus 40 minutes of new content for an extended adventure. A full season of Lost in Oz will debut on Prime Video in 2017.

In the special, 12-year-old Dorothy Gale (Ashley Boettcher) discovers her mother's magical travel journal from Oz hidden beneath the floorboards of their Kansas home. The book triggers a tornado, rips her house from its foundation, and transports Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to Oz. Lost in this bustling, modern, magical metropolis, Dorothy learns that to get back to Kansas, she will need to acquire every magical element in Oz to get home. Unfortunately for Dorothy, Oz is currently facing the worst magic crisis in eons. Dorothy and Toto find unlikely friends and allies in West (Nika Futterman), a young street-smart witch grappling with dark magic temptations, and Ojo (Jorge Diaz), a half-Munchkin full of heart. Dorothy realizes the only way to get the magic she needs to get home is to find Glinda, the elusive and most powerful witch in Oz.

Lost in Oz is based on the "OZ" books by L. Frank Baum. Developed and executive produced by Abram Makowka, Darin Mark, Jared Mark, and Mark Warshaw (East Los High), the series features voice talent from Ashley Boettcher (Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street), Nika Futterman (The Loud House), and Jorge Diaz (Elena of Avalor).

Below are what customers have said about the Lost in Oz pilot:

· "Lost in Oz offers so much more in that it can entertain our entire family. My kids love it, my husband and I love it, and we cannot wait to learn what happens to Dorothy, West, and Ojo as they continue their adventures in Oz!!"

· "In just this first episode of Lost in Oz there were examples of adapting to the unexpected, overcoming obstacles, dealing with disappointment, being compassionate to others, making personal sacrifices for the greater good, the power of working as a team, and the complexities of trust."

· "If anything could become another award-winning show, this is definitely it! And it doesn't have to be just for kids either! Anyone who knows the story of Oz would enjoy and love this new take on it!"

· "Myself, and my 8 and 10 year olds loved this show, we've watched it 3 times already today. A strong female lead, magic, action, mystery, and adventure. Definitely a future award winner!"
