Disney's Oz The Great and Powerful Sneak Peek

movies, Disney

 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.

Oz The Great and Powerful” is produced by Joe Roth, with a screenplay by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final). Grant Curtis, Palak Patel, Philip Steuer and Josh Donen are serving as executive producers. 

“Oz The Great and Powerful” opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.

I remember watching  "The Wizard of Ozwhen I was growing up.  I distinctly remember being afraid of the flying monkeys, but loving the adventure that Dorothy embarked on along the yellow brick road.  I was also a bit envious of Dorothy's red ruby slippers.  (Don't you wish you could click your heels and return home whenever you wish?)

We watched it recently when it was on t.v. in HD and I was amazed at the quality of the film compared to when I saw it growing up.  Technology sure has come a long way since it was made!

This next adventure in Oz from Disney looks very promising!  Have you seen this trailer on iTunes yet?  

Doesn't this look magical?  Are you eagerly awaiting its release like I am?
