Welcome back to Oz. The way you've never seen it before. Disney has unveiled the first official teaser poster for their big, magical new adventure Oz: The Great and Powerful, being directed by Evil Dead's Sam Raimi, starring James Franco as the young magician Oz. We have yet to see an actual trailer or any first looks yet, but they have been showing footage at Disney presentations like D23 and CinemaCon. I expect a trailer is coming very soon this summer, and this poster is just our very first tease. Everything looks colorful and fun, until you notice the multiple tornadoes ravaging Oz. Take a look at the full teaser poster just below.
This was sent out by Disney, so you can see it in full right here. Disney presents Oz The Great and Powerful:
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful Wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well. Also features the three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams). Disney's fantastical adventure Oz The Great and Powerful, directed by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead, Dark Man, Spider-Man, Drag Me to Hell), imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum's beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. From a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire. Disney will be sending us back to Oz on March 8th, 2013 next year. See you then!
