Lea voices Dorothy in the new animated film Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, which hits theaters on May 9. And Lea's co-star in the film, Martin Short — who voices the Wicked Witch's younger brother, Jester — had nothing but high praise for Lea's performance.
"You're way better than that hack Judy Garland," Martin quipped to Lea at the film's premiere on May 3. Clearly, Martin is kidding, since Judy was not a hack. However, it's very sweet that Martin is so supportive of Lea.
And how did Lea respond to Martin's hilarious compliment? "I'm pretty sure that a house is going to fall on you later for saying that," she told him. Talk about an awesome retort!
Regardless of how Lea compares to Judy, there's no doubt that we can't wait to see the new film! And Glee's stars are on a hot streak when it comes to animated films lately, as Jonathan Groff (Jesse) and
Adele Dazeem Idina Menzel (Shelby) both voiced roles in the massive hit Frozen.
Do you plan to see Lea's new animated movie?
