'Oz: The Great and Powerful' Gets Magical 30-Second Super Bowl Spot
The football field for Super Bowl XLVII wasn't the only shade of green seen for the big game today as Disney decided to unveil a new spot for a return to the Emerald City in Oz: The Great and Powerful. The studio is still playing the mystery game by saving the reveal of the real Wicked Witch of the West until the film hits theaters this March. All you need to know for now is that there's three witches played by Michelle Williams, Mila Kunis and Rachel Weisz, and one of the latter two ladies will be getting mean and green. Honestly, I'm still not sold on Franco as the wizard, but maybe he'll change my mind. Watch below!
Here's the Super Bowl TV spot for Sam Raimi's Oz: The Great and Powerful, debuted via YouTube:
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 taking us back to Oz on March 8th in just over a month. Thoughts?

It's so painfully obvious which of the two is the wicked witch. The laugh at the end totally gives it away.

What a disappointment! I was expecting something more, but it's the same scenes all over again. Guess I'll just have to wait until March.

I guess no one remembers there were actually FOUR witches in Oz? Or am I the only one? We have not seen the Wicked Witch of the West yet....Rachel is the Wicked Witch of the East, Milia is the Witch of the South and Michelle is The Witch of the North.

Oh, you are right.

Hmmm. Well seems it will be visually pleasing, I'm more excited then not. As I watched the trailer I totally thought the theme was going to turn into O fortuna...SO glad it didn't. I think trailers get ruined when they have a theme that's too familiar
