Disney has released a one-minute international sneak peek for Oz: The Great and Powerful, and it's loaded with great new footage that gives us a little more information on the witches in the story played by Rachel Weisz, Michelle Williams, and Mila Kunis. It looks like Sam Raimi has made a great looking fantasy adventure film. As a fan of the stories of Oz, I'm looking forward to seeing Raimi's vision of this world come to life.
Oz is scheduled to open in theaters on March 8th.
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.
