Oz: The Great and Powerful

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:

Oz: The Great and Powerful Poster

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!

Visionary director...? If by visionary they mean terrible then yes. Spider-Man 3 is solid proof of that. This poster is quite underwhelming and unoriginal.

Hyperbole? If you look at his filmography, you will see Sam Raimi is actually a great director. His last film, DRAG ME TO HELL, was terrific. SPIDERMAN 3 turned out poorly because the studio was involved too heavily. It also was not that bad, I maintain that it only seemed as bad because of the first two films and the marketing for the film was so good.

DAVIDPD on Jul 4, 2012


I kinda agree/disagree... Yes, Sam Raimi is an awesome director, and its TOTALLY not his fault that Spiderman 3 sucked, but c'mon, you gotta admit that movie sucked so much ass.. 15 minutes of screen time for Venom? Never have I felt so cheated.. >.<" Other than that, yea, he's awesome. Love me some Evil Dead.

Yeah, dude, one movie is not enough to label him. Everyone has missteps, and this one wasn't really his fault. Its like Shumacher. Everyone knows how bad he fucked up the Batman franchise. Public opinion of him is forever tainted. But look at his library, he's got some amazing films under his belt. Raimi is a great filmmaker, and one movie shouldn't be enough to call him "terrible". Just say you hated that film.

I have to agree with you. Sam Raimi's time has come and gone. None of his films really stand the test of time. He's great at sappy campy films. This poster is pretty standard fare.

James Park on Jul 4, 2012


I have news for you, if you take your Andrew Garfield love blinders off, Amazing Spider-Man is just as bad, if not a worse movie, than Spider-Man 3. It'll be thought of as well as Terminator Salvation and Superman Returns by the time it hits bluray.

The logic in your statement is flawed. You assumed that he loves Amazing Spider-Man. Take away that assumption and you are both on the same side unless of course you love Sam Raimi and this preposterous poster.

i dunno, a prequel to a girls dream caused by blunt force trauma?....

Jericho on Jul 4, 2012


Damn...forgot to look at it that way.. WAIT! I got it... Alternate Universe. BOOM!

LosZombies on Jul 5, 2012


It doesn't make sense as a prequel to the 1939 film. It does make sense as a prequel to the actual novel that started all of this, in which everything is real and there is no reference to dreams.

Guy on Jul 5, 2012


Wow! How cliche of Raimi. Surprise, surprise. No thanks.

I thought Oz was the land...which he was the "wizard" of. So now Oz is the wizard's name?

Hollywood must be high on coke again

redskulllives on Jul 5, 2012

redskulllives on Jul 5, 2012


I thought Robert Downy Jr was supposed to star in this! What a HUGE let down. James Franco? Gimmie a break....
