A runaway balloon carries Oscar Zoroaster Diggs to the war-torn Land of Oz. He manages to bring peace to its people. Now he must defeat a vengeful witch to maintain the peace.
Synopsis/Details: 

After his con-artist father is arrested, young Oscar Zoroaster Diggs runs away and joins the circus. Here he grows to manhood, becoming an accomplished ventriloquist and balloonist.

During one of his flights a terrible storm strikes the balloon and whisks him off to the legendry Land of Oz. Upon his arrival Oscar immediately incurs the wrath of Morella, the Wicked Witch of the West.

Armed with only his ventriloquist trickery he manages to defeat the Witch, causing the people of Oz to believe he is a great and powerful wizard. With Morella gone, Oscar allies himself with the Good Witch Glinda to bring peace to the war ravaged land. But Morella doesn't take her defeat laying down. She seeks the help of her sister Malvonia, the Wicked Witch of the East. Together they set out to destroy this new Wizard of Oz, using a terrifying monster they conjured up by black magic. With Glinda aid Oscar has to use real magic to save the newly constructed Emerald City from the wicked witches attack, and keep the Land of Oz from falling into chaos.
