Image Credit: Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic.comVery rarely am I this excited about a movie based only on the actors or actresses involved with the project. But with Variety reporting that Glee star Lea Michele has been cast to voice everyone’s favorite singing Kansan, Dorothy, in the 3-D animated musical feature Dorothy of Oz, I can’t help myself. At the risk of sounding overzealous, can I get a hells yea!?

Other actors contributing voices to the flick include Jim Belushi, Dan Aykroyd, and Kelsey Grammer (as Lion, Scarecrow, and Tin Man, respectively). Win times three. And here’s the big one: Guess who’s currently penning some songs for it? Bryan Adams! They might as well call this movie This Is For You, Sandra. If you can stop judging me for my love of Bryan Adams for a moment, tell me what you think of this news, PopWatchers. Potential to be the greatest animated musical ever? Will we be adding your name to the self-indulgent “This Is For You” version of this movie title I created?
