Glee star Lea Michele thinks it is 'great' she got to try out another role in new animated musical Dorothy of Oz.
Lea is enjoying not being on screen as she voices the character Dorothy.
The actress told 'It's just really nice to get to step into a different world for a while.
'I thoroughly enjoy being at William McKinley High School Monday through Friday at Glee, but it's been really great to step into another world and play another character for a little while.'
She added: 'It only makes the job that I do every day even more enjoyable.'
The movie carries on from where the Wizard of Oz finished, with Dorothy back in Kansas after the tornado destroyed the town.
She has to defeat the evil Jester with some old and new friends when she finds that the Scarecrow, Lion and Tin Man have disappeared.
Dorothy of Oz is expected to hit cinemas in 2012.
