Every 70 years or so, a girl's gotta update her look — and that's exactly what Dorothy is doing in the upcoming film, "Dorothy of Oz."

In this adaptation of 1939's "The Wizard of Oz," Dorothy's adventure will be an animated musical.

Spearheaded by the animation maven Dan St. Pierre, the first images have just surfaced on THR, and they reveal all the fantasy and grandeur of the original with a modern twist to boot.

Dorothy's Oz is a world sprinkled with everything from towers of giant teacups, a luminous Emerald City and a holographic Jester (appropriately surrounded by plumes of smoke and fire).

A bevy of friends will accompany our heroine along the way. Fan favorites the Tin Man and the Scarecrow return -- voiced by Kelsey Grammer and Dan Aykroyd, respectively -- and they're joined by new adds like the dapper Marshal Mallow, voiced by Hugh Dancy.

And, of course, no "Glee" fan hasn't put this version of the famous tale on their radars -- the lovely Lea Michele is voicing the fair Dorothy.

"Dorothy of Oz" is slated to bring its vibrant pictures to silver screen in 2012.
