In this regard, are the four witches of Oz related?

The 1939 MGM film makes the first reference to The Witches of the East and West being sisters, which was not the case in the book; none of the Witches in Baum's Oz are related. In the film, the city is actually all green.

One may also ask, are the witches of Oz sisters? The Wicked Witch of the East was featured in the film The Wizard of Oz (1939). She is revealed to have been killed when Dorothy's house fell on her. The Wicked Witch of the West was not pleased with Dorothy for the death of her sister. Like in the 1939 movie, the two Wicked Witches are sisters.

Similarly, it is asked, how many witches are there in Oz?

four witches

Why is there no witch of the south?

In the 1939 film version of The Wizard of Oz, Glinda is the Good Witch of the North, not the South as in the book. She is played in the film by Billie Burke. If you are talking about the books, Glinda is the Good Witch of the South. There is a Good Witch of the North, but she is not very fleshed out.

It Was All a Dream… (I used to read Word Up Magazine)
This reassures the viewer that the whole ordeal was simply a dream. In the book, however, there is no dream. Dorothy, Toto, and their home are all swept up by a cyclone and dropped into the magical Land of Oz.
