Beyond Oz: 17 Magical Movies for Kids
Oz the Great and Powerful -- opening this week -- has us reflecting on our favorite magical movies for kids. From apparitions and spells, Quidditch and Roald Dahl, magic in cinema has thrilled us for generations. The glittering Technicolor of the yellow brick road was just the beginning, as Mary Poppins, Atreyu, Willy Wonka, Gandalf, and Aslan showed us more fantastical worlds and faraway places over the years.
Movies have come a long way since Dorothy and Toto took us to Oz. Bring the magic home with one of these 17 magical movies for kids of all ages.
