With stunning visual effects and a star-studded cast, will this prequel live up to the timeless classic that is its predecessor? Hit the jump to check out the new trailer.
Directed by Sam Raimi, Oz The Great and Powerful is the prequel to the timeless classic The Wizard of Oz. Starring James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, and Michelle Williams, Oz: The Great and Powerful is set to hit theaters in 3D on March 8th, 2013.
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot—fame and fortune are his for the taking—that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity—and even a bit of wizardry—Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful wizard but into a better man as well.
