Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • People with lilapsophobia (fear of tornadoes) may find the tornado scene unnerving.
  • The scenes where the tornado approaches the farm just as Dorothy arrives (including views of her inside the farmhouse as things are blown about, and later images of the house up inside the tornado, etc...) may be frightening to some kids.
  • The initial shots of the Wizard's chamber (flames and a green projected head), along with Dorothy and the trio's frightened reactions to that may have the same effect on younger kids.
