Trivia

The visuals of Emerald City, tht Wizard's Guard's suit of armor and the imagery of the Wizard's castle, are "heavily influenced" (ahem) by the works of Antonio Gaudí, a Catalonian architect from the Art Decó period, artifex of the Basílica de la Sagrada Familia cathedral at Barcelona. See more »

A Stylish Quest With Interesting Characters
23 January 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Though it contains many references to "The Wizard of Oz" (1939), "Emerald City" has its own mythology. Dorothy Gale seeks to return home, but the lessons of this story are more complex and more far-flung than "There's no place like home".

On her way to the Emerald City, Dorothy traverses strange lands and encounters many with unknown intentions. Accompanied by Toto, her travel is filled with peril and she makes alliances with various characters, some of whom embrace their own parallel adventures.

Besides its striking visuals, "Emerald City" is strong on characterization. By episode four, there are many characters with interesting, deep personalities. Dorothy herself is played by Adria Arjona, combining beauty with an athletic presence. Among the best of the cast is Ana Ulara, the witch called West, who is mysterious and captivating. Oliver Jackson-Cohen portrays Lucas, the story's nod to the scarecrow and a potential love interest.

And what are the morals of this new story? You are not defined by your past. Everyone is on a journey to discover who they truly are. And probably many others, depending upon your vision of life and whatever helps you on your own quest homeward.
