Ahead of tomorrow’s full-length trailer release, Disney are continuing their push of Sam Raimi’s upcoming Wizard of Oz prequel, Oz the Great and Powerful. We recently got two parts of a triptych poster, but now the studio has released the full version, which clearly is better than the sum of its parts, as we get all of our main characters into one photo, including our witches Glinda (Michelle Williams), Theodora (Mila Kunis) and Evanora (Rachel Weisz), as well as our lead Oscar Diggs (James Franco). Also included are a handful of new photos from HeyUGuys, one which gives our first look inside Emerald City. Check them out above and below for the film also starring Zach Braff, Joey King and Bruce Campbell.
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.
Oz the Great and Powerful arrives on March 8th, 2013.
