They released a teaser for OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL a few months back. It was met with mixed reactions. Disney’s new, second trailer for the film gives us a better view of what the film is going to look like.
OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL is a film directed by Sam Raimi. It serves as a sort-of prequel to THE WIZARD OF OZ by showing how the Wizard (James Franco) was whisked away to the magical land. He encounters the denizens of Oz while hiding that he’s not who they think he is. Likewise, he will be given access to the treasure of Oz if he can defeat the Wicked Witch. Pay close attention in the trailer for some hints about the rest of the plot.
The witches of the story are played by Mila Kunis, Rachel Weisz and Michelle Williams, meaning they’re a lot hotter than Margaret Hamilton ever was.
Oh, and if you didn’t know the film was also being released in 3-D IMAX, the trailer is sure to throw lots of stuff at you so you get the picture.
OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL will be released on March 8th, 2013 to what Disney hopes will be some ALICE IN WONDERLAND-type success.
