New Images and Poster for ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ Show of Stunning Visuals
Looking nothing like 1939’s ‘The Wizard of Oz’, a bunch of new images and new posters for Sam Raimi’s prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, show off some stunning visuals and eye-popping CGI-rendered environments that we expect to be wowed by come next spring. The full-size poster, which features the Wicked Witch image we saw a couple of weeks ago, also confirms beyond doubt that the gang of protagonists consists of Oz, Theodora, Evanora and Glinda, as well as a myriad of fantastical creatures.
Released on March 8, 2013, ‘Oz: The Great and Powerful’ stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams.
Disney’s fantastical adventure “Oz The Great and Powerful,” directed by Sam Raimi, imagines the origins of L. Frank Baum’s beloved wizard character. 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 but into a better man as well.
