Disney has released its trailer for Oz The Great and Powerful, the movie that will take viewers back in time before the beloved wizard behind the curtain found his magical groove.
It has been a long time coming (they started started production way back in July 2011), but it appears to be worth the wait!
The movie stars James Franco as Oscar Diggs, a small-town circus magician who is swept away in a cyclone to … somewhere over the rainbow. Diggs thinks he’s found fame and fortune in the magical kingdom until he runs into trio of witches who doubt he’s the wizard they were hoping for and expecting.
Oz The Great and Powerful presents us with three witches: Glinda (Michelle Williams), whom fans of 1939’s “The Wizard of Oz” will remember as the Good Witch, Theodora (Mila Kunis) and Evanora (Rachel Weisz).
Oz The Great and Powerful will be released in 2D, 3D and IMAX 3D on March 8, 2013.
