Watch: First Trailer for Sam Raimi's 'Oz: The Great and Powerful' Hits
"You're in Oz..." After their presentation at Comic-Con, which featured the debut of this colorful trailer, Disney has posted this first trailer for Sam Raimi's Oz The Great and Powerful online. In this adventure back to Oz, before The Wizard of Oz occurs, James Franco stars as a young magician who gets whisked away to the magical world. There he meets the three witches Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), and begins an aventure that will change Oz forever. This looks great, I love Raimi's visual direction, and it all plays well in this world. I'm actually excited for this. Enjoy!
Watch the first trailer for Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful, in high def from Apple:
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?
