Oz: The Great and Powerful Trailer Debuts

Disney has just released the first trailer to Oz: The Great and Powerful starring James Franco in the title role as OZ and supporting him are Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff. The film is directed by Sam Raimi who brought us such films as the first three Spiderman movies.

Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved character, the Wizard of Oz. When Oscar Diggs (James Franco), a small-time circus magician with dubious ethics, is hurled away from dusty Kansas to the vibrant Land of Oz, he thinks he’s hit the jackpot–fame and fortune are his for the taking–that is until he meets three witches, Theodora (Mila Kunis), Evanora (Rachel Weisz) and Glinda (Michelle Williams), who are not convinced he is the great wizard everyone’s been expecting. Reluctantly drawn into the epic problems facing the Land of Oz and its inhabitants, Oscar must find out who is good and who is evil before it is too late. Putting his magical arts to use through illusion, ingenuity–and even a bit of wizardry–Oscar transforms himself not only into the great and powerful Wizard of Oz but into a better man as well.

The film, adapted from L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, is intended as a prequel to the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz. Robert Downey Jr. was first linked to the role of Oz when that fell through Johnny Depp’s name was thrown around until James Franco stepped into the role.

Oz: The Great and Power is due to hit Aussie Cinemas on the 7th March 2013.
