PHILADELPHIA, April 16 (UPI) -- Breaking Glass Pictures says it has acquired the North American home video and broadcast rights to the new family feature, "After the Wizard."
The continuation of Frank L. Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" is set for DVD release this summer. Shot primarily in Kansas, the film stars Jordan Van Vranken, Orien Richman and Jermel Nakia.
The deal for its DVD distribution was struck last week between Ronna Wallace, chief executive officer of Eastgate Pictures, and Breaking Pictures Chief Executive Officer Rich Wolff.
"After the Wizard" is about a 12-year-old girl named Elizabeth, who lives in a Kansas orphanage and believes she is Dorothy, the central character in "The Wizard of Oz."
"After the Wizard" had its world premiere last July in Kingman, Kan. It made its film festival debut March 22 at the International Family Film Festival at Raleigh Studios in Hollywood.
