‘Minnie’s the Wizard of Dizz‘ will be released on DVD on February 5, 2013. And that, in a nutshell, is all we know. The news comes courtesy of Amazon.com which has recently begun accepting pre-orders for the title. According to cursory searches on the interwebs, there is nary a mention of it short of release dates in the mideast, often referring to it as ‘Wizards of Dizz’ [sic].
Apparently, and agreeably so, it will be a ‘Mickey Mouse Clubhouse’ special which will presumably be announced and air on Disney Channel and Disney Junior ahead of its DVD release. One could surmise from the title that this will be a take on the L. Frank Baum The Wizard of Oz series. The popular children’s series has already tackled Alice in Wonderland with its ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ episode.
Also lending credence to theory and adding a bit of suspicion to the subject matter and timing is Walt Disney Studios’ own Oz the Great and Powerful prequel to the series of books, which will bow into theaters a month later on March 8, 2013.
We will provide more information on the ‘Minnie’s the Wizard of Dizz’ special and DVD as it becomes available to us.
