Amazon is building upon the success of its original show Lost in Oz by releasing a new special called Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure. The pilot aired in 2015 with high approval ratings from customers.
This new extended feature will include the original pilot and 40 minutes of additional content. The special is set to debut on December 2 in the US and the UK on Prime Video, and will be followed by a new season in 2017.
Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure is about 12-year-old Dorothy finding her mother’s journal under the floorboards of her Kansas home, which triggers a tornado that drops the house, Dorothy and her dog in Oz.
The cast features Ashley Boettcher as Dorothy, Nika Futterman as West, a young witch, and Jorje Diaz as Ojo, a half-Munchkin.
The special follows a recent larger investment from Amazon in more kids originals. This past month, Amazon Studios added two new shows to its roster: Little Big Awesome and Ronja and the Robber’s Daughter. Additionally, the SVOD greenlit 26 new episodes of The Stinky and Dirty Show.
