Dorothy Gale. If that name struck you, that’s because she is ‘the’ Dorothy Gale, the girl from The Wizard of Oz books and adaptation that you will meet again in a fantastic reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s work, exclusively on iflix, Emerald City is available for streaming and subscribers can download the first six episodes of NBCUniversal’s drama series.
In the first episode “The Beast Forever”, viewers will be introduced to 20-year-old Dorothy Gale (Adria Arjona) who was swept up into the eye of a tornado which transported her to another world — a mystical land where an all-powerful ruler (Vincent D’Onofrio) governs over one kingdom, has outlawed magic, and faces not only the wrath of a growing cauldron of witches, but a looming disaster brought on by a mythical force. Directed by renowned filmmaker, Tarsem Singh, the epic, romantic and fantastical Emerald City is an empowering tale of a young woman finding her true strength and identity even as she battles to bring a divided world together.
Dorothy, unaware that she is about to fulfill a prophecy, will change everyone’s lives forever.
We were given an exclusive preview of the first episode when iflix invited us for an exclusive screening last February 8 at Lugang Lanai in SM Aura Premier.
Emerald City joins iflix’s outstanding library of popular and highly acclaimed exclusives, including worldwide smash hit Mr. Robot, Aftermath, Channel Zero: Candle Cove, The Magicians, Fargo, Aquarius and more.

We’re thrilled once again to partner with NBCUniversal International Distribution to bring this epic series to viewers across Southeast Asia for the first time, exclusively on iflix.”
