Funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the tale follows closely the original story in L. Frank Baum's first, best known and best-loved of the classic Oz tales. There are more adventures than included in the film, more of Baum's original dialogue is included, and the witch plays only a minor (less scary) role.
