Most of my readers know how much I love movies and entertainment. I get super excited about movies long before they come to theaters.
One movie I am very anxious to see if Oz the Great and Powerful. It is not set to be released until March 8, 2013. As far off as that sounds time will pass very quickly.
If you are unfamiliar with the film here is a brief synopsis;
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.
When small-time magician Oscar Diggs (James Franco) pulls one flimflam too many, he finds himself hurled into the fantastical Land of Oz where he must somehow transform himself into the great and powerful wizard—and just maybe into a better man as well.
The film stars James Franco, Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams and Zach Braff.
Check out the new movie poster (above). I can’t wait to see the first official trailer. I bet visually speaking this movie is going to be amazing!
