Tin Man

A continuation of The Wizard of Oz starred Zooey Deschanel (Almost Famous, Elf, The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, New Girl) as DG a small-town waitress who feels that she does not fit into her Kansas farm life and has visions of a lavender-eyed woman (Anna Galvin – Smallville, The New Adventures of Robin Hood) warning her that a storm is coming.

Her visions come true when the evil sorceress Azkadellia (Kathleen Robertson – Psycho Beach Party, Scarey Movie 2, I Am Sam, Hollywoodland, Beverly Hills 90210, Flashpoint, Bates Motel), tyrannical ruler of the O.Z. (Outer Zone), sends her Longcoat soldiers through a “travel storm” to kill DG.

DG escapes through the storm into the O.Z. and befriends several of its inhabitants: Glitch (Alan Cumming – Emma, Spy Kids, X2: X-Men United, Goldeneye), who had half of his brain removed by Azkadellia; Wyatt Cain (Neal McDonough – Star Trek: First Contact, Captain America: The First Avenger, Agent Carter, Arrow, DC Legends of Tomorrow), a former “Tin Man” law enforcer who was locked in an iron suit for years as punishment for opposing Azkadellia; and Raw (Raoul Trujillo – Apocalypto, Scanners II:The New Order, Highlander III: The Sorcerer, Cowboys & Aliens), a “viewer” whose people have been enslaved by Azkadellia.

DG receives a magical symbol on her palm and learns that her Kansan parents are androids and that her real mother is the lavender-eyed woman of her visions. Visiting the Mystic Man (Richard Dreyfuss – Jaws, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, Always) in Central City and continuing on to the Northern Island, the group learns that Glitch was once the advisor to the Queen of the O.Z. and that DG and Azkadellia are actually sisters and the daughters of the Queen…
