In the meantime, go to your local landmark theatre (thats Tivoli / Hi Pointe for you st. louis folk), and see Mirrormask. It's Neil Gaiman and Dave McKean's new film, (with a lot of work done by the Jim Henson Company) and it is gorgeous. In a lot of ways, it bears a similarity to Wizard Of Oz and Neverending Story, but is completely original and absolutely delightful.
Go see it! I have commanded it.
