We've got a few new photos from Sam Raimi's OZ The Great and Powerful for you to check out. They feature cast members James Franco, Mila Kunis, Michelle Williams, and some others characters in the story. Rachel Weisz also recently did an interview with The Sun in which she talks about how much she enjoyed playing the Wicked Witch saying,
It was a fun idea to be playing someone who is really, really bad. I can’t think of any roles that I’ve had like that before... She’s really, really a bad person and she revels in being bad... It’s a Disney film, so I shouldn’t say she is ‘turned on’ by evil, but that’s what it is like... She enjoys it, like the meaner she is the more pleasure she gets.
Weisz is going to be awesome in the movie, and I think she's going to end up stealing the show. I have high hopes for this fantasy adventure, and I think it's going to be good! It will be released in theaters on March 8th, 2013. Check out the images!
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 (JamesFranco), 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.
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.
