Six Stunning Images from Sam Raimi's 'Oz: The Great and Powerful'

Oz: The Great and Powerful

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?

    I can't help but compare the imagery to Alice in Wonderland. They look very much alike, imo, but without getting one of those depressing muted-colors-only, doom-and-gloom filters slapped on that Burton seems to be so obsessed with. I'm excited to see the Emerald City. I hope it'll make my synapses explode with its vivid brilliance.
  • Did their art department get mixed up with the Alice in Wonderland one? I know that movie made a load of money, but are Disney that desperate they have to make it look so similar to get the bottoms on seats?

    This is just wonderful...

    Looks good. I'm wondering how long it'll be until Sam resumes work with Blizzard on the Warcraft movie.
    • Nick Out Of The Closet
      Hopefully NEVER.
  • The Truth
    This will look breathtaking on IMAX 3D!

    When in doubt, add god rays. Raimi is so done.

    I've always been a fan of the Oz movies...especially the more 'disturbing' one...LOL!! This is a flick I'd like to watch in 3D. It's gonna be beautiful.
