The Wizard of Oz is one of my all time favorite movies so I am looking forward to the release of Oz the Great and Powerful in 2013. It is a look at the Land of Oz from a different and intriguing perspective. A creative storyline that looks at the history of the Wizard, didn’t you ever wonder where he came from? Check out the newest trailer on iTunes now.
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.
I’m a huge fan of James Franco (127 hours and Spiderman), he’s a great actor and easy on the eyes! Check out this dreamy photo from the movie.
