Trailer for Sam Raimi’s OZ THE GREAT AND POWERFUL
So it’s happening, and here’s the trailer for it. Sam Raimi’s Oz the Great and Powerful is a prequel to The Wizard of Oz with James Franco as the wizard. The trailer does a good job at reminding people of some classic scenes from The Wizard of Oz; you get the house in the tornado, black-and-white to color, and even some green colored rivals.
Oz the Great and Powerful opens on March 8th, 2013.
When Oscar Diggs (James Franco) is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot— 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 of Oz but into a better man as well.
