Movie News: Oz The Great and Powerful Video Trailer

by Carrie with Children with comments closed

I love the classic Wizard of Oz.  When I heard about there was a prequel in the works,  I was a little hesitant.

However, after watching the new trailer for Oz The Great and Powerful…  I’m extremely excited.  It looks fantastic, not to mention that it stars James Franco!

Oz The Great and Powerful

Here’s the inside scoop on the movie –

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.
