"Remembering Return to Oz: Click Your Heels" is a brand new production featuring memories from several of the cast and crew members of the 1985 Disney cult classic film "Return to Oz." The film will showcase "Return to Oz" fans in addition to some amazing "Return to Oz" movie memorabilia. Most of all, it celebrates a film... and not just any film, but a film about the America's own fairyland: the Land of Oz, Dorothy, and her search to free the friends that everyone has grown to love. "Returning to Oz" is not only a film about the making of "Return to Oz"... it is about the memories of those involved in the filming and being a part of something so special. The documentary is being produced by FamilyFilmsProductions with Aaron Pacentine and Celia Foster as narrators. The film will feature director Walter Murch (Director, of Return to Oz), Emma Ridley (Ozma), Justin Case (Scarecrow), Pons Marr (Head Wheeler), Sophie Ward (Mombi II), alongside crew members and others involved with the film. Among those behind-the-scenes talent, we have Paul Maslansky (producer), Doug Aberle (claymation), and Craig Miller (Disney publicist from the 80s). We are also honored to have the involvement of Disney historian Bill Cotter. Cotter will be sharing his thoughts and opinions on "Return to Oz." Along the way we'll meet a few "Return to Oz" collectors and get to see some of their amazing and rare memorabilia!
In the summer 2015 Aaron led an interview with producer Paul Maslansky at the International Wizard of Oz Club's Winkie Convention in San Diego, California. The convention's theme was "Return to Oz" and there Aaron shared deleted film clips from the movie, while Paul talked about the making of the film and answered questions regarding the deleted footage.
Aaron has attended and been a part of many Oz events. He has even held an Oz event of his own creation! On October 27th, 2007, an Oz event took place at the WestGate Mall in Spartanburg, South Carolina. Pacentine produced the event and there were vendors selling Oz collectibles as well.
The centerpiece artwork featured on the "Remembering Return to Oz" DVD will be produced by renowned Oz artist Vincent Myrand. We are honored he is working on this with us. You can discover Myrand's art on his official facebook page at www.facebook.com/VincentMyrand.
Celia Foster is no stranger to the world of "Return to Oz." Celia has been a longtime fan of the film for many years. She maintained the well-known and now-cached web site - ReturntoOzTheMovie.com. She has moved on and now maintains WaltDisneysReturnToOz.com.
Along with co-producing the documentary, Celia has many items in her collection. She has also assisted with the script. Private backers of the film are credited as coproducers, and we are very grateful for their support!
