Being fairly familiar with its story due to references from animated sitcoms and a probable watch during my childhood, I was surprised how much fun of a watch this film was! Such a massive production for its time, in which everything has been carried out to the last detail. A neat score, a beautiful decor and suiting costumes to finish off the style. The lion is a blast, he honestly made me laug out loud sometimes!
3.5 stars. A little too much mugging for the camera for my tastes, but you could just lick those colours off the screen! And I found the sequence in the poppy field when the snow falls really beautiful. I did wonder why some songs were cut and not others. I could have done without 'If I Were King of the Forest'. The Wicked Witch of the West deserved a song!
