Lost in Oz, an animated series targeted at children ages 6 to 11, premieres on Amazon Prime Video Aug. 4.

The series, which expands on the Amazon original special Lost in Oz: Extended Adventure, is an adaptation of the Oz books from L. Frank Baum. The special, at an hour and eight minutes, will be broken into three episodes, with 10 new episodes added on.

Lost in Oz features the voice talent of Ashley Boettcher, Gina Gershon, Allison Mack and Jorge Diaz. It sees 12-year-old Dorothy discover her mother’s magical travel journal hidden beneath the floorboards of their Kansas home. The book triggers a tornado, which rips her house from its foundation and transports Dorothy and her dog, Toto, to Emerald City, which Amazon calls “a bustling, modern metropolis.” To get home, Dorothy learns, she must acquire every element on Oz’s “periodic table of magic.” Her allies along the way are West, Ojo, Reigh the Lion, Scarecrow and Glinda the Good.

“We’re excited for families everywhere to experience the magic of this serialized action-adventure comedy, led by a fearless female character and featuring a diverse group of friends,” said Tara Sorensen, head of kids programming at Amazon Studios.
