The last time I wrote about OZ the Great and Powerful I revealed that many of my tastes in entertainment haven't really changed since I was a kid. Disney, The Muppets, and now The Wizard of Oz–it's honestly really nice to know that my favorite things continue to cycle back into my life, and I'm possibly even more excited about them as the years go by!
OZ The Great and Powerful will be released in theaters next spring, and I'm super-excited at how lush and amazing this movie looks!
A new trailer for OZ The Great and Powerful was just released! Here it is:
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 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.
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 is produced by Joe Roth and written by Mitchell Kapner and David Lindsay-Abaire (credit not final).
Grant Curtis, Philip Steuer and Palak Patel are serving as executive producers. Oz The Great and Powerful opens in U.S. theaters on March 8, 2013.
