It explains everything in W of Oz from the Wicked Witches POV. Neat concept, and good music, if you like that type of thing. :)

There's a small subset of us who want a RWD, Manual Transmission Family Automobile. But GM doesn't make it because the other 97% of the buyers don't want it, or know any different. :(

I haven't seen Maleficent, but I liked both the Wizard of Oz and Wicked. I'll admit Wicked is more of a fun "what-if" as opposed to a "that is how it really happened" type of story. Though I do...
