No doubt the first trailer for Oz: The Great and Powerful was full of stunning imagery and was a great tease for a return to Emerald City with Sam Raimi at the helm. Of course, the film still has a lot to live up to with the 1939 classic The Wizard of Oz being one of the most highly regarded films of all time. And with credits like "from the producer of Alice in Wonderland" being touted, it doesn't inspire a lot of confidence. However, there's no doubt that the world of Oz looks bright and altogether gorgeous, thanks to that same film's production designer Robert Stromberg (who is next directing Maleficent). Take a look below!
Here are some great stills from Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful sent to us from Disney:
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. Thoughts?
